Covent Garden is a wonderful little neighbourhood. Narrow winding streets, lanes and courtyards, with lots of shops and restaurants and pubs. The focus is the main square where the old flower market used to be. It's now filled with shops. there are street performers in the square, a flea market on mondays. There are designer shops circling the square and old St. Paul's church. The Royal Opera house is here and there are other theatres in the Covent Garden area as well. The Museum of Transportation and the Theatre Museum are nearby, well worth a look. There's a wonderful little shop that sells miniature theatres and the Apple market is usually set up in the entrance halls of the market building. There are also a lot of funky shops like one selling Australian goods, and an astrology shop. Wander. Enjoy.
