Guide to... Covent Garden

Covent Garden has lots of things to do and is well worth visiting. It has some of London's best restaurants, bars, pubs, clubs, hotels, cinemas, shops, and things to do. So many things to do that you might need some help making a plan. Well we are ready to help.

Covent Garden has a convenient tube station and plenty of parking so it is easy to get to and there is no excuse not to visit.

Our recommendations both in the guide below and in the articles from our London blog include the best places to eat from cheap to flashy; breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner. If you are looking for the best cafes, or restaurants, we have our top picks. Covent Garden boasts great restaurants serving great Indian, Italian, French, Thai, and Mexican food. We have our choices for meat lovers, vegetarians, and pizza fans.

We also made some picks for everything from places for cocktails (like the best rooftop bars); to pubs to watch some sport and catch-up with friends at; to info about where to stay (budget accommodation like hostels, to romantic five star hotels).

If you are a shopaholic we have some recommendations and top tips for shopping at places like the Apple store too.
