Covent Garden isn’t just a single attraction – it’s several attractions rolled into one giant area of fun in the West End. It’s one of the most popular tourist attractions in London and you will face large crowds.
But it’s worth it. The center of activity in Covent Garden is centered on the Piazza and the Old Market which has been sympathetically turned into retails shops, restaurants and the always fun Apple Market.
Surrounding the Piazza is more shops and attractions, including the London Transport Museum (a must see for transport geeks).
You really feel the buzz of tourist London here.
