It isn’t just its incredibly central location that makes this an exclusive area to live in, but also the wealth of culture, the exquisite architecture, and the whole air of style and vibrancy.
Covent Garden has a special atmosphere all of its own. As you walk through the cobbled car-free streets, there is a feeling of calm even though everything around you is bursting with life. It’s a fantastic place to grab a coffee and watch the world go by, there is so much to see.
Covent Garden is intoxicating for the senses, with live music, street performances, an abundance of food, coffee shops, bakeries and the flower market. The neoclassical buildings play home to a true mix of independent traders, high street brands and designer stores – it’s no wonder that properties here are highly sought after. It’s home to the world famous Royal Opera House and Royal Ballet, as well as over 20 theatres, and is also in walking distance of many of the city’s main attractions. You can find a real retreat at the community-led Phoenix Gardens, which is the last of the Covent Garden community gardens and is a vital habitat for urban wildlife.
