Seven Dials

Seven Dials was developed in the 1690’s by Thomas Neale, who wanted to attract wealthy residents and shop owners to Covent Garden. Ironically, the area soon deteriorated into one of London’s most notorious slums, with a pub on every corner that faced the sundial.
Today Seven Dials enjoys a reputation as one of London’s trendiest districts. It’s a hub of shops that seem to be constantly changing style and ownership, competing to keep up with or set the layest fashion agenda. The sundial pillar is a major landmark of the area and a meeting place for everyone in the vicinity – it’s often crowded during lunch hour and after work.
Did you know? – the Seven Dials monument only has six faces – it was built during them time when Thomas Neale’s development plan only had six streets.
