Cecil Court is an interesting little street originally laid out in the late 17th century, located between Covent Garden, Trafalgar Square and the Royal Courts. It has a rich history that you can read about on it's website -

Amongst other things, Motzart lived above a barbers shop here as a child when visiting London in 1764, and it has been suggested that it is where he wrote his first symphony. TS Eliot also lived here for a while, and the street is supposedly the inspiration for J K Rowling's 'Diagon Alley' from the Harry Potter series. 

Now it is full of interesting independent shops selling things such as first edition books, antique maps, collectables, art, jewellery and more.
