The Local Area
Overlooked by the Royal Opera House and surrounded by several prominent West End theatres, Covent Garden is something of a haven for arts lovers. With its large piazza, it’s also a perfect spot for street performers, several of whom put on acts every day – a tradition that dates back hundreds of years to 1662, when the first street entertainment in the area was recorded. If theatre, opera and ballet aren’t of interest, there’s still plenty to do. Somerset House, The National Gallery and the London Film Museum are all within walking distance and there are more shops, bars, cafes and restaurants than is possible to count. Both lively and uplifting, residents of long stay serviced apartments in Covent Garden will find the area to be one of the most exciting neighbourhoods in London.
