Where to stay
Covent Garden is host to a number of hotels including the Radisson Blu and a Travelodge. If you’re looking for somewhere quirkier to stay then you can also find some great boutique locations, including The Fielding Hotel and Kingsway Hall - a sumptuous and extravagant hotel that’s home to the Harlequin Restaurant.
There are also some great serviced apartment options in the area which include Grosvenor House Studios, an upmarket apartment block that leases rooms out to travellers and offers all modern conveniences in the very heart of London. Staying here means that you’ll be within easy reach of sightseeing attractions and you will also have some truly spectacular views from your bedroom window.
There’s no shortage of things to do in Covent Garden. The Royal Opera House is always hosting world-class ballet, opera or theatre. The London Transport Museum is also well worth a look, and then there’s the Apple Market itself, with its boutique shops, cafes and tea rooms. Off the beaten path there’s plenty of incredible eateries that we’d recommend, including contemporary restaurants such as Margot. There are also more traditional joints such as Flat Iron, which is renowned for its steaks. Enjoy a bevy of street performers found to the north of Covent Garden’s main piazza. Some of these acts are truly a sight to behold, so we’d definitely recommend that you spend some time soaking up the atmosphere!
