A place to take a coffee and if you are lucky you will hear live classic music! It also some shops that you only find them in the Covent Garden. Like a treasure hunt, you have to be more careful!

If it's quirky and quality then Covent Garden and environs is a great place to shop and done even with children.

A busy part of London. With its own underground station there is plenty to see and do. Lots going on including freelance entertainers, shops, stalls and at this time of year, great Christmas decorations. Gets extremely busy. Would recommend 1 - 2 hours to visit.

I've been here plenty of times but this was my first trip with children. Beautiful area, always lots of street entertainment which the kids loved, and lots of good restaurants and shops. Extremely easy access on the tube too.

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.
