Covent Garden Market

Holiday Travel Guide

Get lost in the cobblestoned labyrinth of boutiques and bars, or simply find a spot to enjoy the street performers in one of London’s most entertaining districts.

Situated on the site of a 17th-century fruit market, the main piazza, shops, bars and restaurants now take center stage in Covent Garden. While the fruit market has moved to south London, the area is still bursts with energy and life. From string quartets, to escape artists and mime artists, “The Garden” attracts street performers from all over Europe.

The area is perfect for foodies and coffee aficionados too. You’ll find international flavors in the many restaurants; think Thai sticky rice, French pastries, Belgium chocolate, Spanish seafood paella and North African curries. If you want to try some tasty European brews, The Garden offers a choice of historic and character-filled pubs within the main square.

Beyond the restaurants and boutiques of the main piazza, each area of Covent Garden impresses with its own character. Long Acre features a great choice of fashionable stores, including local favorites like Ben Sherman and All Saints. For a more laid-back vibe, explore the artsy boutiques and quirky cafés of the Seven Dials area.

Satisfy that sweet tooth at one of the cute little Monmouth Street cafés serving up pastries and English tea. Coffee connoisseurs will also find plenty of options for a latte or Americano. Around the corner is Neal’s Yard, which is filled with hip shops and independent clothing outfitters.

Covent Garden is conveniently located near the West End and claims the beautiful Royal Opera House as its own. Built in 1732, this landmark building has endured fires and many changes of hands but still hosts performances by the Royal Opera and Ballet companies.

The closest Underground station is Covent Garden.

"Our stay was great here. The Hide room was quite small with nowhere to put our clothes which was the only downfall. The bed was so comfy and the shower was great. The location for the hotel was ideal for our trip. Staff were lovely and very accommodating. We will definitely be back, thank you."
