I saw a post discussing Covent Garden which made me curious so I went to the webpages discussing that. Unfortunately, some of them would not open here but I did get a look at some. I also searched the forum here for info, but I am still unclear as to exactly what Covent Garden is. From what I ascertain, it is in the West End and is an entertainment center for London. Shopping, theatre, nightlife, restaurants are all popular there.
We are not big on nightlife, have already booked three plays, and don't have a big eating out budget. Given those perameters, is CG still worthwhile to visit? I guess I am really not clear on the big picture of that area- if it's fun to just go and people watch or look around without staying in a hotel there, eating a nice dinner out, or shopping.
I have, as I mentioned, tried to search this out for myself, but would enjoy some of you London regulars giving me the big picture for the area.
And I cannot open the calendar telling the events during our visit, so I don't know if street performers are in the area daily or only on specific dates. We'd enjoy street performers....and we'll be nearby several times so we could fit it into our itinerary if it sounds fun after hearing more details.
Thanks for any advice you can give.
