Seven Dials and Neal’s Yard are one of my two favourites places in London.

They are not in my top 10 things to do in London, as there are other major things to take off the London bucket list but I would definitely recommend to go and take a look if you are coming to Visit London.

Located in the heard of London, right in between Covent Garden, Soho and Leicester Square, somehow, it feels like a London village. It can be busy at times but mostly I always find it quite relaxing to stroll around the streets of Seven Dials or stop for coffee at Neal’s Yeard, especially when you come from the crowded and super touristic Covent Garden or Leicester Square.

It’s cute and pretty and full of amazing places. It simply feels really lovely to be there. It is also especially nice during Christmas in London when Seven Dials becomes like a sort of London fairyland. Stunning every year.

Must Sees

Neal’s Yard

Obviously. The most colourful square in London (Read also about the most colourful streets in London). I can’t get enough of this lovely and unique place. It’s so pretty and full of amazing places to eat and drink in London.

Seven Dials roundabout

Yes, I am advising you to visit a roundabout. It may not sound glamourous but it will quickly become once you’re there. With its column in the middle, Seven Dials is very unique. During all seasons, people sit down in the middle of time and let the time goes by.

– Monmouth Street

A very lovely street with plenty of cute cafes and the delicious macarons from Pierre Hermé. It’s very pretty seen from the roundabout.
