  • I write this review that isn't a review to specify that the market called "New Covent Garden Market" is actually located in Nine Elms Lane (NIne Elms), but it's a fruit, vegetable and flower market, and therefore generally not frequented by tourists. The reviews published here refer almost entirely at Covent Garden, which is a mall specifically in the area of Covent Garden, and which is frequented mostly by tourists. Two places, so completely different from each other.

  • Quite nice but a huge tourist trap. Sunny afternoons in summer it's jam packed. Mostly tourist shops but it's pretty and there are good places to eat. A good time to go is around 9 am when everything is opening and there are fewer people. Beware of the stairs at the underground station, there are hundreds of them. Unless you're an Olympic athlete, use the lift.
  • Always a busy and buzzing atmosphere. The street performers are worth watching. It’s a good area to wander around and people watch. Plenty of food and drink options in and around the surrounding area.
  • Finished our day off here, at the end of a long day with my son & friend. Managed to catch a few street entertainers & a bit of classical music in the market square. Love a bit of classical music. Be prepared to make a donation, if you watch, only fair though.
  • Manic to say the least but I still enjoyed my time here. We walked down just to see a bit of London rather than the tube. The street performers are great and market stalls are fascinating.
  • Great place to take the kids for an afternoon. Drinks and nibbles a bit over priced but, considering all the 'free' entertainment, we'll worth it. Definitely advise taking a handful or more of pound coins and some £5 notes.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
