Covent Garden is a London district located near Soho. It is limited by Charing Cross Road, The Strand, Kingsway and High Holborn. Covent Garden's most notable landmarks are the Covent Garden Market and the Royal Opera House. The market opens from 10am to 7pm during the week days and on Saturday and from 11am to 6pm on Sunday. It is very lively, with numerous cafés, and one can easily find street entertainment in the area, such as in the Courtyard, dedicated to classical music only, in the West Piazza, in the North Hall or in the South Hall. The Royal Opera House is located in Bow Street next to Covent Garden Market and was built on a stunning pearly white, Neoclassical, absolutely gorgeous building, commonly referred simply as Covent Garden. It is also the home of the Royal Ballet and the Royal Opera Chorus. It is possible to visit the Royal Opera House interior although some areas may be temporarily unavaiable if events are taking place.
