Old Brewer's Yard

During the 1960s the yard was owned by the grocers TJ Poupart Ltd; these days it plays hosts to businesses like The Hat Factory, and a number of flat for rental.

How to get here:


Underground (Piccadilly): Covent Garden - Exit the station onto Long Acre, and cross the road to Neal Street; when you reach Shelton Street at the end of the pedestrianised walk, turn left and Brewer's Yard is just on the left. +
