Lima Floral
Covent Garden
★★★✩✩

Lima Floral has been open 12 days when I visit and it's awkward. We have to climb up to a reception lectern that dominates an over-large embarkation area. Staff busily flit in and out, brittle worker bees.

The 1861 steamship Yavari is now the only working single screw passenger ship in the world, a product of the Thames Ironworks and Shipbuilding Co of Bow Creek - which also gave birth to West Ham Utd (the "Irons").
