I love the mix of architecture among these courtyards in the Byward Market. Much of it consists of older stone buildings, with newer structures here and there. In the first shot, the Connaught Building features in the background.
This patio space belongs to the cafe behind the bright red door and window- the Moscow Tea Room.
Turning, the path takes us through this arch to the most southerly courtyard in the network. There are several restaurants to be found here, and with buildings as old as these, a few ghost stories as well. The Courtyard Restaurant, for instance, is said to be haunted.
