The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.

Great area, great vibe.
Nov. 2021
Lovely to walk around the little cobbled areas with the shops and bars etc and the enclosed emporium of other little upmarket shops and the not so upmarket market further down, selling other items. Loved the items of the not so upmarket market, bought lots there. It is very near the London Transport Museum so we spent most of the day in this area, lunched in Maxwells and drinks in other places. Enjoyed it all.

A memorable morning spent in this lovely market
Nov. 2021
Wandering around the market, the lights, the fabulous Christmas tree, the antiques market, the bric a brac market, all the small shops, the buskers playing classical music, what wasn’t there to like.

We had coffee at Le Pins, a French bistro type place, where the service was excellent, and the pain au raisin fabulous…

Fake snow
Nov. 2021 • Couples
Really disappointed in the fake snowfall that is produced on the hour , every hour it lasted for about 5 minutes - from a gutter up by the roof , near the main tree..
if you are going to hopefully see a picturesque amount of fake snow - - do not bother
What a let down 😕
I was there 6pm on Saturday 27th November

The place to be!
Nov. 2021
The best area for me in London with an unequaled vibrancy day and night. Great restaurants like TUTTONS plus the smaller bars around the area. A must when visiting London.

It is always possible to enjoy a visit too Covent Garden, there is so much going on there, I even managed to purchase a new pair of shoes, but the queue for Apple Store was outrageous, good job I was not in need of a visit!

Fab lunch menu!
Nov. 2021 • Friends
The Real Greek restaurant in the middle of the Strand near the Adelphi Theatre.

Excellent stop-off for lunch. For £8.50, you had a fresh starter of either crudités or flatbreads and 2 dips,then a choice of lamb kebab or several other or veggie choices and accompanying rice dish or chips or potatoes - we were well fed indeed.

The offer is Monday to Friday 12-5pm (unusually) - can’t recommend it enough - great if you’re visiting the refurbished Courtauld Gallery in Somerset House …
