Odd shops

Need a porthole, floating keyring, Breton top, length of rope? Here’s the shop for you - Arthur Beale’s Yacht Chandlers on the Covent Garden end of Shaftesbury Avenue. Intriguing non? Apparently it’s been there 110 years.

Lovely sign.

It is next door to Freud equally worth a visit for those quirky tea-towel, coffee pot, electric fan needs.
