Covent Garden

(0 votes, average 0 out of 5)

ImageThis little district in the eastern most part of the City of Westminster, which has existed since the Roman times of Londinium, has slowly emerged as one of London’s most thriving areas, dominated by shops, entertainment facilities such as bars and restaurants and most famously- street performances. While the market itself is not extraordinary, it the atmosphere of the place; with its performers and cheering crowds, that makes it a must visit.
The famous Royal Opera House, which has been the venue for some of the world’s most famous performances, is also located here, as is the Theatre Museum and London Transport Museum, which traces the history and development of the city’s transport system.
