Covent Garden in London’s West End is a firm favourite for visitors to London. At the centre is Covent Garden Piazza, a regular home to popular street artists and performers entertaining busy crowds of visitors and passers-by. We highly recommend a visit at the weekend to take in one of the open air shows, or merely for a coffee… it’s a great place for people watching!
With unrivalled shopping, historic theatres and over 1000 places to eat and drink, Covent Garden offers great variety and something to suit all interests. Commonly known as the ‘West End’ Covent Garden is home to many world renowned theatres including the Royal Opera House and plays host to West End Shows, many of which have been running for years due to their great popularity. Within Covent Garden there are several smaller districts worth exploring each different from the next and offering unique character such as Covent Garden market piazza, St Martins Courtyard, Seven Dials, Floral Street with its designer outlets and The Opera Quarter, Covent Garden’s historic food quarter.
Bordered by the City of London and Leicester Square and within walking distance of Soho, The River Thames and Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden is perfectly situated and makes a great base for business people looking to immerse themselves in vibrant London.
Forget hotels if you are staying in London for a few weeks or months and book one of Clarendon’s many serviced apartments in Covent Garden. It’s the only way to live London!
