Situated in the heart of the city, Covent Garden is a shopping and theatre district popular with locals and tourists. It is best known for its history as a fruit and vegetable market beginning in the 1600s, Covent Garden has transformed over time and is now home to entertaining street performers, top theatre shows, and designer boutique stores and hotels.
I spent the weekend in Covent Garden with spending money gifted by https://uk.hotels.com/de1632891/hotels-near-covent-garden-market-london-united-kingdom, but all views are mine. With so much to do, one can often feel overwhelmed to what to select. I often start with windows shopping followed by a meal and a a stroll. One of my favourite places to go to is Floral Street. It is a great little place. Full of little boutiques and shops and cafes and has the same lovely atmosphere as the main area of Covent Garden and it’s piazza. Tt’s worth an explore around the little streets and alley ways.
Covent Garden’s restaurant scene more than holds its own against formidable competition from its neighbour, Soho. The Ivy, a 101-year-old institution, is one of London’s best known restaurants. Its menu has plenty of modern twists, but you can’t really beat its classic shepherd’s pie. The Savoy Grill is a fine-dining favourite, serving up the best of sophisticated British comfort food — think beef wellington, ale and onion pudding, and so on. For a top-notch pie and mash, look no further than Battersea Pie Station.
