Covent Garden, London, England (5/43)

Covent Garden is a massively popular part of London dating back to the early 17th century. The most popular attraction is the famous Covent Garden Market.

This area is always busy with tourists and locals however it is definitely worth a visit. Covent Garden is centrally located within easy walk to Soho, The West End and Leicester Square. It is also well connected to the London underground with its own tube station and is part of zone 1.

Covent Garden is a perfect place to spend the whole afternoon browsing the many shops, eating at one of the fantastic restaurants or just people watching while having a few beers in a local pub. While the market piazza is the main drawcard, we recommend heading outside to the Seven Dials area for some even better shopping. This area gets its name from the seven interconnecting streets, and contains over 96 fashion, beauty and lifestyle stores and over 90 independent restaurants, cafés and bars.

Getting lost in the lane ways dating back to the 1600’s is one of the pleasures of London. The area is also home to some of the many London theatres and a lot of restaurants will offer discounts if you have theatre tickets. The nearest station is Covent Garden, which is seconds away from the main market building. Other underground stations which are close by include Leicester Square and Charing Cross.
