Covent Garden, London

4.4
Head to Covent Garden for one of London's liveliest street scenes. A former covered vegetable garden, the area now offers a collection of cafes, restaurants, and shops. You'll find a global range of cuisines, from Japanese and Indian to French and British, and diverse shops offering various clothing styles, art, gourmet foodstuffs, and much more. Even if you're not hungry or interested in shopping, you can still find plenty of entertainment from the street performers. Watch magicians execute their tricks as buskers' songs fill the air. Before heading off, be sure to snap a few photos of the Royal Opera House's detailed facade. Theatergoers fill the area in the evening, but you'll likely find it bustling no matter when you visit.

  • Characteristic is definitely worth seeing. Is well organized comes with recreations. Recommend to visit the surrounding area is the neighborhood where this market/Mall is located.

  • Really great. Lovely boutique shops, eateries, pubs. A must for tourists and locals (if you don't like crowds and photo wielding tourists then don't come here)! Also, at Xmas time, they have a large tree in the square. In summertime, you will see street performers (best spot to watch is from the Punch & Judy pub balcony).
  • An assortment of myriad fast food stores and watering holes. Covent Garden is a good visit if you having nothing specific at mind and want to start somewhere, after which you can branch out. Well connected and easy to reach to, it's a good place to sit outside and enjoy food.
  • A great place for food entertainment and the unique markets. Street performers and live classical music. A wonderful place day and night. A great tourist attraction and family friendly with many shops and boutiques.
  • Lots to do at this place in London , England. Shops, food places. And live entertainment. London underground train stop here. Taxis. But walking is best to get around. Pay a visit if in London for a trip or Holiday.
  • A unique experience especially for London visitors. there are nice shops but most of them are brands so you will not see different things in terms of products and goods. The surrounding area is excellent for shopping and food.
