While enjoying the great live music, equally bright menus are available from the many cafes and restaurants throughout Bell Court. These include All Bar One, Nando’s, ASK Italian, Veeno, Everyman and Miller & Carter. Plus, there’s locally-made cakes and pastries and family-brewed coffee available at independent floral café, Bardia’s.

Bell Court is not all about fine food and drink however, with those looking to treat themselves able to get their beauty fix at The Naildressers and The Browstudio or pick up a new outfit from Gemini.

With a range of furniture (both indoor and outdoor), soft furnishings, candles and a range of decorative accessories available at Farringdon and Forbes, the perfect hand-picked gift is never far away.

Meanwhile, it’s hard not to lose yourself at Magic Alley which is full of games, books, home accessories, wands and many other magical items. Plus, you can enter the world of a time-travelling William Shakespeare and let your imagination run wild with dragons, sorcery and a frost phoenix.

Finally, the Everyman cinema offers a unique experience thanks to its luxurious sofa seating and table service that customers can enjoy while catching the latest summer Blockbuster.

The upcoming music events and circus workshops are all completely free and take place in the vibrant courtyard at the heart of Bell Court, enabling visitors and residents to experience Bell Court in a relaxed yet up-beat setting.
