Welcome to Covent Garden Market
This place is always vibrant and interesting. It's open 7 days a week and houses many famous designer shops and small stalls selling fashion, arts and crafts.
On Mondays, some stalls specialise in antiques, retro costume jewellery and collectables.
Children of all ages love the street entertainers.
Don't miss the Seven Dials district, north-west of Covent Garden tube. It's packed with loads of interesting shops and there are some good pubs as well.
