Covent Garden Style
Want to know which of our London Shopping Walks is the one for you? Here’s the style lowdown on Covent Garden…
Located in the heart of London’s theatreland, it’s guaranteed that come rain or shine there will be something to entertain you in Covent Garden. Stop to watch the street entertainment in the piazza, where musicians and magicians jostle for your attention, or how about a West End show? Don’t forget you’re also only a stone’s throw from world famous museums and galleries – and the hidden gem that is Sir John Soane’s House. A visit here comes highly recommended by Kathryn Abrams from Trip Stylist (you can read more in our interview with Kathryn).
Back to the shopping - cosmopolitan Covent Garden is one place that really does have something for everyone. The famous flower and fruit sellers have moved on – leaving fashion to take centre-stage. The historic market is now packed with independent stalls selling unique gifts. Out on the surrounding streets high street favourites and designer boutiques sit side by side, whilst lovers of the latest gadgets won’t want to miss the Apple store.
With our Covent Garden Shopping Guide you’ll visit a diverse mix of the best of British – such as Joules, Lyle & Scott, Cath Kidston and All Saints, plus some international superstars too.
