Shepherd Market London
A small square town was constructed by a famous architecture, Edward Shepherd back in 1735, where a nice range of shops, pubs and restaurants were established. This small piazza, which was named as the Shepherd Market, is positioned between Curzon Street and Piccadilly. In initial days before its establishment as Shepherd Market, a popular fair used to take place there that was mainly for the purpose of cattle trading. But eventually Queen Anne ended the festival, and Edward was commissioned to gentrify and develop the entire site into a new place. Later on in the 1920’s, the market was turned in to a highly modish place of London which accomplished in grabbing the lime light. The elite Londoners considered this market as the best selling place, which was yet another reason due to which this piazza acquired an enterprising reputation. After so many years, Shepherd market has still sustained its distinctive position, among several other shopping malls of London.
