It has come to my attention that there appears to be some confusion on the streets of London.
American 1: “This park is so cute. What’s it called?”
American 2: “Oh, this is Covent Garden”
Clearly, there seems to be a dangerous amount of false knowledge circulating in certain parts of the West End.
As anyone who has ever directed a disappointed dancing elephant away from Piccadilly Circus will know, the problems such misinformation can bring are many, far reaching and a hazard for those in open toe shoes (especially in rush hour).
Therefore, it’s only right that we set this “it’s a garden” / “it’s not a garden” malarkey straight once and for all.
Spread the word, let’s nip this thing in the bud (no garden pun intended).
Coming up next week: the distinct lack of glass in Crystal Palace.
