Covent Garden

Covent Garden

London’s favourite piazza and tourist hotspot, Covent garden is bursting with shops, bars and cafes for travellers and tourists to revel in. Street performers and artists add to the busy and bustling shopping spot, home to the Apple Store and a great choice for Christmas shopping or a family meander. 

Be careful not to take the steps when heading back down to the tube when heading back to Kensington, shopping bags adorning each arm- the spiral staircase of 193 steps at the underground station may be quite a challenge!

How to get to Covent Garden

Covent Garden is on the Piccadilly Line. Covent Garden’s tube station is a very short walk from the Market Building at the end of James Street. Covent Garden underground station only has lifts up from the platforms so it can be slow-going at busy times. During peak times it is suggested that shoppers take the tube to Leicester Square (via the Piccadilly and Northern lines), which is a short walk to Covent Garden.  If you’re heading to Covent Garden from a spot of site seeing at Embankment (via the Circle, District, Bakerloo and Northern lines), Covent Garden is within a ten-minute walk from the station.
