Martlett Court is a small pedestrianised street running from Dury Lane to Bow Street in central Covent Garden. The street is home to residents that occupy one of the three large red brick mansions blocks which were built after the land was sold to the local council in that area by the eleventh Duke of Bedford at the end of the 19th Century.
The classic large red blocks are home to a mixture of studios, 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom properties, some of which are still owned and occupied by council tenants, but the majority of the flats are now privately owned. There are over 125 residents living here, most of which are professionals looking to be central with easy access to both the city and west London, or University students looking to be within walking distance to the central London Universities such as UCL and LSE.
As Martlett Court is in the middle of two pedestrianised streets, the residents here can enjoy the quiet surroundings and the beautiful communal gardens hidden in-between the blocks. However they’re also just moments away from the ever vibrant Covent Garden, which is known for its designer high street shops and snazzy restaurants.
At the Bow Street end of Martlett Court is the famous Royal Opera House, which dates back to 1732. Over the years it has transformed and been re-built three times due to fires in 1808 and 1856. The present Opera House was built in 1858 and now holds 2,256 people who all come to enjoy the various performances, including Macbeth, The Royal Opera, The Royal Orchestra and Ballet.
Martlett Court is within a short walking distance of Covent Garden (Piccadilly Line), Holborn (Central and Piccadilly Line) and Charing Cross mainline station, making it a very accessible location, perfect for the central London dwellers.
