My Favorite Street: Seven Dials, Covent Garden, London, England

My favorite London street is actually the confluence of seven streets near London’s Covent Garden into a circular space called the Seven Dials. At the center of the Dials stands an obelisk with six sundials (not seven) donated by the Worshipful Company of Mercers—one of London’s guilds, and the owner of the area—in the 1690s.
