Situated on the site of a 17th-century fruit market, the main piazza, shops, bars and restaurants now take center stage in Covent Garden. While the fruit market has moved to south London, the area is still bursts with energy and life. From string quartets, to escape artists and mime artists, “The Garden” attracts street performers from all over Europe.
The area is perfect for foodies and coffee aficionados too. You’ll find international flavors in the many restaurants; think Thai sticky rice, French pastries, Belgium chocolate, Spanish seafood paella and North African curries. If you want to try some tasty European brews, The Garden offers a choice of historic and character-filled pubs within the main square.
Beyond the restaurants and boutiques of the main piazza, each area of Covent Garden impresses with its own character. Long Acre features a great choice of fashionable stores, including local favorites like Ben Sherman and All Saints. For a more laid-back vibe, explore the artsy boutiques and quirky cafés of the Seven Dials area.
