I go there each time I visit London. Yesterday we had (again) a great show of a street performer. These guys really deserve respect.

Stunning place, been many times before but in 28 degrees it felt more like Rome than London. Usual street theatre and loads to do and see. One of my favourite parts of the city

Been here many times and enjoy going every time, great little market stalls then bigger shops when you go further. Lovely dumpling dolls stall, worth a visit to hear the stories. Brilliant food outlets with a wide range of food available. Great tourist attraction full of people from different cultures with street entertainment all around. Will return many more times I'm sure.

We have been to Covent Garden many times and always come back because there is always something new to see. The Apple Market is fabulous, great food, good atmosphere and free operatic singers to delight you. But if you go on a Thursday you will also experience the East Piazza Real Food Market. We stumbled across this and were quite delighted to see the local delicacies displayed in a truly British way. if you do not live in the UK then go and see how they do it...you will not be disappointed. Allow a good couple of hours and stay for lunch. Great choice of food at a reasonable price. My wife and I had a great British pie & chips at the lower level in the Apple Market...an experience that you must have. Not the cheapest place in the world but worth the atmosphere and architectural delight.

I wish we'd spent more time at Covent Garden! There was just so much to see but we were on a tight schedule. Loved the market and surrounding streets. The street performers were great too. Spend an afternoon there, you won't regret it.
