Colville Place is found just before Goodge Street in London when traveling North up Tottenham Court Road. The square is quite small, containing, a couple of walkways under arches created by plants and various seating. The area around Colville place is packed with shops and offices.
The Colville Place Gallery is on Colville Place. This is the only gallery in the UK dedicated to Digital Art. It occupies 1 Colville Place and has a changing display of new and emerging artists working with the new media. The Colville Place Gallery has a very good reputation for the art it displays, and also contains a fair collection of books and DVDs about the subject.
Tottenham Court Road one of the places in London to go for HiFi and computer shops, which dominate the bottom end of the street. The top end contains more furniture shops, including Habitiat and Heals. There is also a fair collection of eatery chains to satisfy the lunchtime demands of the offices nearby. Colville Place can make a welcome break for a place to rest one's feet from trudging through the shops, although the sound of Tottenham Court Road is never far away.
In the summer, the time at which this picture was taken, the grass of Colville Place may be all but invisible at lunchtime due to the number people occupying almost every available space.
