Covent Garden

Jubilee Market, Royal Opera House and The London Transport Museum

Covent Garden has come a long way from its origins as a fruit and vegetable market. Over the decades, the main square has evolved into a popular shopping spot, with handmade crafts, clothes, confectionery and pieces from local artists alongside high-end shops, boutiques and restaurants. The Jubilee Market in the South Piazza has days dedicated to specialisms, with antiques on a Monday, household goods from Tuesday to Friday, while weekends are dedicated to arts and crafts.

Choose a Covent Garden hotel for a visit to the Royal Opera House, the Grade I listed building that is home to both The Royal Opera and The Royal Ballet. The London Transport Museum, located in the main square, covers London transport from 1800 right through to the present day, showcasing the technical advances that have helped to shape the capital. Hop off at Covent Garden Underground Station on the Piccadilly line to explore this lively area.
