Covent Garden, it is one of the most mythical of London. Definitely a place to visit. Walking its streets full of people, artists, tightrope walkers, mimes, musicians … and take something for their terraces is a must if you are in the British city. Be sure to visit the Covent Garden market and see how you pass the English with live entertainment.
Covent Garden was used as a market of fruit and vegetables that are converted into a commercial center. During the day appeared very excited, but at night striking and somewhat crowded, all transactions close early. In one of its outdoor restaurants we were able to taste some excellent pizzas and we made a constancy of our passage through graphical Royal Opera House. Because it is a covered market, the stalls where artisans offer their goods, designed in a very unique way, with the simplicity and practical significance. The central market you can find one of the Apple Stores in the city.
For a long time, Covent Garden was a center of trade in flowers, fruits and vegetables, from the eighteenth century to be a well-known red-light district of the city. In the ’70s, however, this scenario has changed due to the displacement of such trade and the revitalization of downtown London. Since then, the place shines with its relaxed atmosphere, rich in street performances, chic restaurants and themed decorations that enchant, especially for the holiday season!
The square of Covent Garden is located east London’s Soho, in the heart of the British capital. Thousands of tourists visit it every day so I would advise that, weather permitting, visit it at night, when the atmosphere is quieter and there are still street musicians playing, which makes creating a relaxing and pleasant atmosphere. If you go during the day my advice is that you take a break with a coffee in comfortable terraces, there are many pubs, boutiques and restaurants recommended. If you go on a Monday you must know that there is an interesting antiques market that you cannot miss.
Of all ways in which this market is highlighted in craft shops, pottery and gifts for children, and there is usually group performances of classical, folk, encouraging the visit. Regarding the prices tend to be higher compared to other markets in the city, although the qualities of the products on the market are usually better.
