Covent Garden Travel Guide


Back to the Piazza to settle down for some entertainment. The line up may bea little light classical music followed by a comedian, a pavement artist and a juggler. Not enough culture? Then step into the magnificently refurbished Royal Opera House for a free lunchtime concert (booking essential) or a backstage tour

Designer shops such as Paul Smith and Nicole Farhi, mid range shops like Karen Millen, Monsoon and Oasis and the downright quirky such as Lush the cosmetic maker all have a presence here. Sample the impressive array of organic cheeses at Neal’s Yard and stock up on the freshest Italian delicacies at Carluccio’s Delicatessen. Better still grab a table and sample the great chef’s cooking right here! The Donmar Warehouse, a cutting edge theatre space run by American director Sam Mendes is just around the corner.
