The colonnaded nineteenth-century Piazza building remains one of central London's most popular spots, playing host to a busy mix of weekly markets, high-end shops, accessible restaurants, live music, seemingly impromptu theatre shows and street performers.
Offering a range of world-class fashion, beauty and lifestyle stores, Covent Garden is one of London’s hottest shopping destinations. From Apple to Tom Ford, Mulberry to Paul Smith and Petersham Nurseries to Benjamin Pollock’s Toy Shop, the area boasts a unique blend of global and independent brands curated to satisfy every shopping need in London.
Whether it’s breakfast or brunch, pre-theatre dining or burgers alfresco, Covent Garden is a foodie’s paradise, filled with a diverse array of gastronomic options to suit all taste buds morning ‘til night. With renowned five-star restaurants including the likes of Frenchie, Henrietta, The Oystermen and Balthazar. This year, look out for exciting new additions from Sushi Samba, Petersham Nurseries, Cora Pearl and RedFarm.
Discover Covent Garden’s rich heritage through the centuries, from orchard garden of Westminster Abbey to London’s first residential square to London’s wholesale fruit and vegetable market.
An area also synonymous with performance, from humble beginnings recorded by Samuel Pepys as the birthplace of the ‘Punch & Judy’ puppeteer show, to the home of street performance today.

Covent Garden market is the place to be and visit. There isn't anything that you couldn't find here. Especially as there is something to satisfy everyone's needs. You know the ol' saying here's a place that has something for everyone and it really is true of this place.
Really wonderful market with a large selection of cool bits from handmade scarfs, to bespoke perfumes - this market has it all!
A nice place to chill out on a summer afternoon. Lots of food shops, restaurants around. On street eateries are my favourite, you can have a meal watching the world go by. Plenty street side shows like street magicians, acrobats etc to keep you entertained.
Very nice and vibrant market. Always full of people walking and shopping. Sometime there are street shows that add to the excitements and he noise. Love Covent garden. Enjoy eating and shopping or just looking around.
for me a visit to London must include some time, evenings, mornings, at Covent Garden Market - love the crafts and the performances there! And as for the food and the coffee mmm mmm! There this week - just thinking about it is so exciting!
A hive of activity is Covent Garden Market , I was fortunate to visit recently and took in the fabulous decorations , as well as the great acts performed there by real artists of entertainment . The knife juggling tight rope walker held my attention for the longest , along with 50 to 80 others ,very comical and fascinating act to watch ! After wandering from stall to stall , I got many Christmas presents , and then found a pleasant courtyard to eat and drink , while again being entertained . To combine shopping , dining , entertainment and a cheerful friendly atmosphere , there can be no better setting than this .Well done Covent Garden ,I shall be back !
