    Never miss this place/market if u intend to visit London. Such a great mix of luxury brands, hand crafted shops, weird shops, and restaurants. There are also lots of entertaining street performers.

    At its best, Covent Garden Market can be a beehive of activity, with up to 3 levels of shops, bars, pubs and restaurants to explore. One of my fav spots is '21', an outdoor pizzeria, & 'Shake Shack'

    When tourists say “Covent Garden” they mean the covered market in the center of the Covent Garden Piazza, but “Covent Garden” actually describes an entire neighborhood, Its my favorite spot in London

    Located in in the beautiful Covent Garden Piazza, the market itself is quite small but full of little antique gems. If you like vintage jewellery and quirky crafts you’ll be pleasantly surprised! Read more

    You try to eat in Paul's Boulangery, near to market on Bedford Street. And under the market try to eat paella, and listening violins!! Amazing place. I live it. For me the best market in London.

    Soak up the atmosphere here and check out the two separate markets - Jubilee and Apple. Go during the weekend for arts & crafts at Jubilee and artwork & jewelery at Apple!

    Awesome way to spend an hour or two going through the luxury or craft shops, grabbing a bite to eat, or watching the street performers.

    You can find anything here from antiques to vintage clothes. While it’s crowded with tourists on most days, we love coming to watch the street performers on a beautiful summer’s day.

    This London institution may appear too commercial and crowded to provide a characterful retail experience, but some quirky gems lift the experience. Read more

    The square here was laid out by Inigo Jones in 1630, on land once used by the monks of Westminster Abbey as a garden, but confiscated by Henry VIII during the Reformation.

    Plenty of shops and cafes around here to eat in and buy things. There's a lot of street performers and therefore a lot of tourists so it can get busy.

    Had a nice breakfast here on a Saturday morning before it got crazy with tourists. Surprising how chilled and quiet it was, but hugely enjoyable and the breakfast was pretty decent too!

    "Jamie's Union Jack's" in the middle of the marjet serves AWESOME pizzas! Street performers can be bloody noisy and get in the way of a peaceful drink.

    The architecture of the place is worth a visit. Very busy on the weekends but the quality of the stores is worth a visit.
