Head to Covent Garden for one of London's liveliest street scenes. A former covered vegetable garden, the area now offers a collection of cafes, restaurants, and shops. You'll find a global range of cuisines, from Japanese and Indian to French and British, and diverse shops offering various clothing styles, art, gourmet foodstuffs, and much more. Even if you're not hungry or interested in shopping, you can still find plenty of entertainment from the street performers. Watch magicians execute their tricks as buskers' songs fill the air. Before heading off, be sure to snap a few photos of the Royal Opera House's detailed facade. Theatergoers fill the area in the evening, but you'll likely find it bustling no matter when you visit. With our custom trip planner, London attractions like Covent Garden can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • A must visit her for your trip to London. Streat performerance and som noch in one of the restaurants her is a must.
  • Shopaholics could easily spend a day in Covent Garden. Shops range from the quaint and quirky to the more recognisable outlets - like Disney and Apple - with lots in between. Covent Garden is a vibrant place, with plenty of places to eat and drink, and it is easily accessible from the nearby tube station. It's also definitely worth visiting, although be warned it is a tourist hotspot so can get very busy.
  • This is my favourite place in the whole of London. Quaint, hidden little area away from the generic hustle and bustle from the high streets. The bars and cafes can be a little pricey but you can always choose where to go. Definitely worth visiting during Xmas!
  • Great street performances and equally good atmosphere in the area. A free show for everyone around here and places of places to eat and drink. Day time and night time visits well worth it.
