Perhaps it's just the time of year, but the crafts market was pitiful, loads of empty stalls. Street entertainment is just glorified begging.

I thought the covent garden area was very cute and a fun area to explore. Something different than huge piccadilly circus.

Highly recommended to pop there for some food and drinks during the week. It’s super busy at weekends so you’ll struggle to get a table if you don’t book. Overall though there’s lots going on, shops, food, bars etc. A great place to go in...More

Museum is smack in the middle of Covent Garden. There area is a hot tourist spot, street entertainment and food outlets in abundance together with fine restaurants to suit all ages and cultures. Museum was very informative about the evolution of public transport in London

Delightful place, while going through the sections, there was an unexpected bonus while going through a market of hearing and seeing a singer practicing an aria in a coffee shop. Shopkeepers were pleasant even if the traveler was just clearly browsing. No pressure, sharing samples.

I always make a point of going through Covent Garden when I come up to Central London. The beautiful set up of buildings and the old cobblestones is just lovely. Street entertainers, brilliant shops and great atmosphere any time of the day. Fantastic little eateries...More

There are not that many close to convent garden, however search for the hotel you want in London - the transport system especially the underground is fantastic and will get you anywhere you want to go.
