Situated on the site of a 17th-century fruit market, the main piazza, shops, bars and restaurants now take centre stage in Convent Garden. While the fruit market has moved to South London, the area still bursts with energy and life. From string quartets to escape artists and mimes, “The Garden” attracts street performers from all over Europe.
The area is perfect for foodies and coffee aficionados too. You’ll find international flavours in the many restaurants; think Thai sticky rice, French pastries, Belgian 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 favourites like Ben Sherman and All Saints. For a more laid-back vibe, explore the artsy boutiques and quirky cafés of the Seven Dials area.
Satisfy that sweet tooth at one of the cute little Monmouth Street cafés serving up pastries and English tea. Coffee connoisseurs will also find plenty of options for a latte or Americano. Around the corner is Neal’s Yard, which is full of hip shops and independent clothing outlets.
Covent Garden is conveniently located near the West End and claims the beautiful Royal Opera House as its own. Built in 1732, this landmark building has endured fires and many changes of hands but still hosts performances by the Royal Opera and Ballet companies.
