“A definite 'must' when in London”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

My favourite little haven in London. Markets, shops, coffee shops, restaurants, entertainers of all sorts - it is so amazing. We had taken our children there previously but they are now of an age where they appreciate all the above elements of a holiday. We only had one afternoon/evening and were meeting relations but it was buzzing, as always.

“lovely morning”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

We had a lovely morning in Covent Garden, it is a pleasant place to visit, the food market is excellent, street shows were nice and funny.
come in the morning for breakfast, shop around and go back to eat something, go up to the opera house terrace for afternoon view of the area, and then go to the seven dials to end the day.

“Nice experience”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Covent Garden was a cool place to visit. Lots of neat shops and food markets. It's quiet and not too busy. Away from the hustle of Oxford street. I think its a better place to get your shopping in.
