What to know about staying in the Covent Garden area of London

If your budget allows this is my recommended area for first-time visitors to London.  It is the place to which I head every time I visit London – with restaurants, shops, street artists, cobblestones, and a fantastic atmosphere the heart of the theatre district is where it’s at!

What to see in and around Covent Garden

Main attractions in the Covent Garden area are

  • Theatres – head to one of the many theatres in the area for a show or musical. 
  • The London Transport Museum (I love their shop!)
  • Neales Yard – one of the most popular ‘secret spots” in London 
  • Head to Trafalgar Square and two of London’s best art galleries – the National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery
  • Shops! There are some fantastic shops to explore in the Covent Garden area from designer to quirky. My favourites – The Moomin Shop and Sass and Belle.
