"Best street performers" Covent Garden Tip by codrutz
Covent Garden, London: 165 reviews and 268 photos
Covent Garden is a district of London, located to the east of Leicester Square. It's best known for the covered market, shopping, street performances, Royal Opera House and the Royal Drury Lane theater (where I saw an excellent musical - Lord of the Rings).
I recommend going inside the covered markets and having a coffee up or downstairs, and watch the musicants playing inside. I don't like street performers in general, especially the boring human statues, but Covent Garden's clients rate them if they don't like something they boo them :) When I was inside there were a group of musicants playing string instruments (violins and violas), and they performed great. The best ones (like this one) had their music on the CD too and they sell also the CD, beside the money from the audience.
Address: Covent Garden, London WC2E
Directions: Nearest station is Covent Garden on Piccadilly line (to go to the lines you have to use an elevator instead of stairs - not pretty when crowded) or you can use Holborn station (on Central line) or the Leicester Square (Piccadilly line)
