Covent Garden


A bustling, pedestrian area, crammed with shops, cafes and restaurants, Covent Garden is popular with tourists and locals alike - it is one of my preferred shopping areas (although I have to say the Gap could be better!) and there are so many great places to eat and hang out, including the lovely New Row Coffee (love that place). Seriously, if you are in town drop me a line and I will write you a list!

The creative epicentre of the city, Covent Garden is the home of London's theatre scene - there are so many theatres as well as the Royal Ballet and the English National Opera, which both call the Royal Opera House their home. Wandering down side streets you stumble across stores selling stage make up, renting professional costumes, or stocked with every script under the sun.

Summer or winter, Covent Garden is a very special place.
