The central London district of Covent Garden is a magnet for visitors to the city. It is a hive of activity day and night - famous for its shopping, bars & restaurants, streets performers, theatres and the Royal Opera House.

The Covent Garden Piazza is located in the geographical centre of the area and is normally a buzz with buskers and tourists. In the middle of the piazza you can browse through the market or stop off for a meal or drink and enjoy the passing entertainment.

If you're into shoes, head to Neal Street for the largest range of shoe stores in town. For those wanting a healthy lunch try one of the colourful cafés on Neal's Yard, and then perhaps head into the Neal's Yard Dairy check out what this master cheese-maker has on offer.

Afterwards there are historical pubs to drink in before heading off to see the latest smash hit show at one of the nearby theatres.

Yes, it can get pretty crowded here, and you do have to keep your hand on your wallet, but there are some great things to see just off the main drag, so have a wander and see what you can discover!
