The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

A nice surprise
Jun 2021 • Couples
Out of the subway and heading to our hotel we walked through a crowded area that if being honest i took little notice of, it was only once we went out for a walk about that i fully took in the sights of Covent Garden Market.

A mixture of shops from high end establishments to market stalls, cafes, restaurants and bars.

Entertainment on the streets or under the cover of the Market itself, this place has everything.

Our hotel was a 5 minute walk away at most and this was the perfect location to sit and enjoy the evening while having a drink or two.

Even better you can if you wish take your own and just sit on the steps watching everything going on roundabout you.

Felt safer here than i do back home.

Visited several times between 3rd and 8th June.
Atmosphere was great, plenty high quality shops, restaurants and bars to sit and people watch or have lunch or dinner.
Definitely worth visiting.

Fairly nice

It was generally a good outing with the family. I found some of the shops to be extremely out of our price-range, but aside from that, it was quite nice.

What a great place to meander around and shop or eat or people watch. Well worth a visit! Sit in the bottom floor and listen to the live musicians. Always good entertainment 🎵🍸😊

Me NaNa going back.

Nana Cafe - decent drinks but our table and seats had sharp bits of wood (splinters) all over it. Ruined my partners dress and I had some on my hand. When I told the waiter his reply was that they are doing a refurbishment like dirty martini in a few months and that was it...Cheers mate, I'll just sort our the wood sticking out my hand.

Wonderful to be back
May 2021 • Family
We absolutely love this place. We had lovely pancakes at a crepe restaurant and listened to some beautiful classical music inside the Apple Market. We had a wander and brought a few bits and then watched two street performers who were both very different and very good. It's things like this we've missed doing. So happy to have been back for a visit.
