ROB MABEE REPORTS FROM LONDON

In a previous post about Goodwin's Court, I mentioned a flowery little find—Neal's Yard. This is another funny little lane that is just minutes from Covent Garden but if you didn't know it was there you may never stumble upon it. Central London's own Secret Garden. It was quiet when I went there the other evening with my friend Rachel who says its a bustling spot during the day, great for a relaxing coffee, lunch or just a poke around. Rachel gets her hair cut at the Fairy here which has a rather unique approach and lets any hairstylists traveling or staying in London come in and cut a few heads of hair. You will probably always get a different stylist and some are the world's best.
