Covent Garden

Covent Garden Area Guide

Possibly one of the most well known and most visited areas of London, the Covent Garden piazza dominates with its quaint boutique markets and shops. Being the first ever open square in England, the piazza was originally London’s most important flower, fruit and vegetable and when this was moved in 1974 the area was restored to what you see today.

You can’t fail to notice the classical Italian architecture around the area, the beautifully constructed Royal Opera House and St Pauls Church tucked away and don’t miss the outdoor entertainment – fun for all the family!

Flagship stores and luxury brands dominate the streets along with some of the most recognisable Michelin star restaurants. Covent Garden is and has always been an exclusive area to live and being in such close proximity to theatres such as The Lyceum and St Martins, it is ever evolving.

After 10 years working in the area you pick up a vast amount of local knowledge – please get in touch, we’d love to share it.
