About us

Having a Covent Garden connection - whether growing up here, working here or living here now - brings a strong sense of loyalty and belonging.

This website has been set up to bring Covent Garden people together. Whether you had to go further afield for housing, chose to live further away or are struggling through the tourists now, we want to see your photos, hear your stories and share your memories.

If you remember the old market, or are familiar with Macklin Street School/St Joseph's, St Clement Danes, the Gainsford Club, Shelton Street Youth Club, the Seven Dials Club - in the basement or on the first floor - we invite you to look around and join in. No matter how long ago or how recently, whether your family has been here for five years or five generations, we want to hear from you.

If you would like to add your photos and stories, please do. If you need help, get in touch with the editors and we'll help out.

Our thanks to Westminster City Archives, who've trained us and helped set up this site, to Camden Archives, and of course to the Covent Garden Community Association.
