The area was briefly settled in the 7th century when it became the heart of the Anglo-Saxon trading town of Lundenwic, abandoned at the end of the 9th century.
By 1200, part of it had been walled off by Westminster Abbey for use as arable land and orchards.
By 1654 a small open-air fruit-and-vegetable market had developed on the south side of the fashionable square.
Gradually, both the market and the surrounding area fell into disrepute, as taverns, theatres, coffee-houses and brothels opened up.
This had been prompted by Charles I taking offence at the condition of the road and houses along Long Acre, which were the responsibility of Russell and Henry Carey, 2nd Earl of Monmouth.
Russell and Carey complained that under the 1625 Proclamation concerning Buildings, which restricted building in and around London, they could not build new houses.and The Bajo Bar which is our downstairs bar area with a vibrant atmosphere and where we serve our Bajo Bar Food Menu.Please note, you can also order from the A La Carte Menu.The market grew and further buildings were added: the Floral Hall, Charter Market, and in 1904 the Jubilee Market.By the end of the 1960s traffic congestion was causing problems, and in 1974 the market relocated to the New Covent Garden Market about three miles (5 km) south-west at Nine Elms.LIMA Floral is the younger sibling to its Michelin starred sister in Fitzrovia.
