FAQs about Covent Garden and Sightseeing in London


Covent Garden has some great pubs which is no surprise as it is such a great area of London to meet in. Particularly if you like traditional pubs you are spoiled for choice as Covent Garden has some of the oldest and most traditional pubs to be found anywhere in London.

There are lots of pubs that serve Sunday lunch and traditional British pub grub too so if you are looking for a reasonably priced place to eat and drink one of the best gastro pubs in Covent Garden is well worth considering as a destination.

For a list of Covent Garden pubs you can view our Covent Garden pub guide (https://forbidden.london/london-guide/covent-garden/pubs) we have also recently created a blog post about our top picks for the best pubs in Covent Garden (https://forbidden.london/london-blog/best-pubs-covent-garden).
