“Nice only for the artists presentation outside”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

Its a really beautiful place, but is only with fancys stores inside. So, if you dont have money to spend there, you dont have a lot of things to do. The only good point is that outside always have nice artists presentation where u can spend a time watching.

“VIBRANT AREA - AND IT'S ALL FREE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

Close to Covent Garden Tube Station, I've been coming back to this area for years, and I love it. There's lots to see and do - and it's all free. From street performers, magicians, musicians, booths, stalls, shops, cafes and bars, there's so much to see and do. Plenty of places to get a meal or a drink and I have to say we haunt the Punch & Judy on a regular basis! There's plenty of action if you want it and you can take a mosey along to Trafalgar Square to see the sights if you want to. We did, it was a crowded Saturday, (7th June). Falun Gong supporters were out highlighting the persecution that particular group experiences in mainland China. Or, if you just want to sit and watch the world go by - the choice is yours - and you can take as long as you like.
Highly recommended.

“Dreadful Toilets”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

The Toilets at the west end of the Covent Garden Piazza almost underneath St. Paul's Church, provided by Westminster City Council, have always been adequate if a little smelly, but the staff used to take a pride in keeping them clean. Now the charge for admission has gone from zero to 50p, the small is worse, and the standard of cleanliness has dropped. How can the advent of charges have been accompanied by this drop in standards? Westminster: this should be a flagship loo. Get it sorted please.

“Love the relaxed continental feel.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

I love walking through late on a Saturday night when people are busking, they are always amazing and pull a crowd. Coventry garden has such a great feel, well worth a visit.

“Fantastic atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014 via mobile

With shops, eating places and entertainment, Covent Garden is a great destination. There is plenty to interest and delight. We were there on a balmy evening before the theatre and the place was buzzing. Spend the time to sit and take it all in!
