We went in the morning on a Tuesday and there wasn't many movement. Is a nice market and there are many places to eat. The most expensive bathroom in London

The area around Covent Garden is really nice and vibrant, but the market itself has become too popular and overcrowded. Also food and drink very expensive

Covent Garden always transforms into a Christmas paradise over the festive period. The area is full of twinkling Christmas lights and decorations including mistletoe chandeliers, a giant reindeer, a present-filled vintage car and a huge Christmas tree. Definitely a quaint part of London!

Stayed here in the travel lodge. Lovely vibrant neighbourhood, felt safe, Even with two small children. This is the area we will stay in every time we come back to London now. Very close to most major attractions as-well and a close tube station

There are not that many close to convent garden, however search for the hotel you want in London - the transport system especially the underground is fantastic and will get you anywhere you want to go.
