Covent garden is well worth a visit, particularly if are up for a good shop! It is a very quaint neighborhood, but definitely has it's quirks! When I visited, there was a man hanging upside down from a lamp post playing his guitar. This incident has perhaps forever defined my perception of Covent Garden!

Always lots happening, Plenty of energy 24/7. good for the half-price ticket booth as well. Lifts to the tube get crowded during theater hours.

The former fruit and vegetable market, now converted to shops, restaurants etc. Not as unique as it used to be since the chains moved in. Avoid the market which is full of rubbish. The London Transport Museum in the former flower hall is recommended for transport buffs

Great shopping stop in a surprisingly stunning space. Even though the weather was grey when we visited, the place still felt bright with all of the windows. However, we did have to fight through crowds the entire time.

This may not make your list of sites to see on your first visit to London, but if you have some extra time, or this is a repeat visit to London, definitely check out Covent Garden. It's a sprawling labyrinth of little shops and booths! It's easy to lose your way and lose track of time. It's a lively spot with lots of youth, tourists, food stalls and lots things to catch your attention. It's a great spot for people watching.

Covent Garden is based in a tall, glass roofed building with vendors selling fruits and vegetables. The last time I was here they had a performer playing cool tricks on the audience. It's a popular tourist site and shopping area in London.Recommended for:Foodies

Less crowded than Regent Street, it's a nice shopping area at walking distance from Piccadilly. Street artists usually entertain the public with magic/comic exhibitions.

Covent Garden is filled to the brim with street performers and street vendors along with traditional shops and restaurants. We just passed through it (on foot) while exploring different parts of London. I did stop and buy two finely crafted bracelets from a street vendor. It is expensive shopping but I would say a really good once in a lifetime find is well worth it. One little thing to watch out for are street performers who lure in a crowd with a 10-15 minute performance and then demand that members of the audience give them a few pounds each (true story). Most of the performers, however, leave it up to you to give them money or not.Recommended for:Art & Design Lovers
