Covent Garden

Covent Garden: best known for its cobbled central piazza, where tourists flock to eat, drink and shop, sneaking in a quick selfie with a mime or some fella dressed up as the tin man along the way.

Also, the heart of London’s theatre land – the epitome of ‘let’s catch an early drink or dinner before catching a show’. There are 13 different playhouses to choose from, as well as food spanning the globe. Covent Garden’s restaurants sees old school stalwarts like The Delaunay and J Sheekey sit alongside modern trailblazers like Kebab Queen, whose tasting menu is served directly onto the counter-top.

There’s a glut of bars in Covent Garden too, from glitzy hotel cocktail bars to romantic wine bars, to time-travelling trains with a penchant for gin. And that’s before we get to institutions like The Royal Opera House, National Gallery, and the mind-bindingly beautiful Somerset House.

A thriving garden indeed.
