During your visit to London, don’t miss stopping at Convent Gardens. Lots of lovely boutique shops, restaurants, pubs, open air vendors and free music performers. Very close to Leicester Square!

well worth seeing for street entertainment alone also the variety of shops all selling their own special wares also great coffee and cake shops all so different from high street coffee and all coming together to give convent garden a special atmosphere

A great way to spent an afternoon. Loads of lovely places to eat or just sit and people watch. Great atmosphere, live music and shopping. It just feels like London.

Covent Gardens shopping area has some incredible stores, but many of them are US based like GAP and don't add to the London experience at all.

This place has everything, from the buskers and performers to the cafes and restaurants and the markets themselves wonderful to wonder around and have a look. I think the prices in the markets are a little high, but there is so much old stuff there...More

There’s always so much going on an Covent Garden. So many shops, restaurants etc. It’s a must see when visiting London. Normally a lot of street performers too. It’s only a few minutes walk from Leicester Square or it also has its own tube station....More

There are not that many close to convent garden, however search for the hotel you want in London - the transport system especially the underground is fantastic and will get you anywhere you want to go.
