Covent Garden is famous for its shops, street performers, bars and more. In the open piazza jugglers, mime artists, variety acts and musicians delight and amaze the crowds.
It's the perfect place to while away a few hours, at all times of the year. Sit and marvel at the wonders of the street performers, wander through the shops and take a look at the beautiful architecture of the Royal Opera House.
Covent Garden is one of London's most picturesque, inner-city areas so make sure you bring your camera - especially if you're visiting at Christmas time. It can get very busy so if you can, plan to visit at off-peak times.
There are plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants in the area for you to enjoy, but it is completely free to wander around.
