Map of London Covent Garden tube station

Once the home of the the famous flower market (but alas no more), Covent Garden still boasts a market every day except Sunday. A wide range of goods are on sale, from cloths to clocks to crockery, providing the ideal place to hunt for unusal gifts for others or oneself.

In the area are a large number of interesting places: the London Transport Museum being just one.

There are an immense number of restaurants in this area, many of them highly priced, but extremely good. Covent Garden is home to Thank God It's Friday and Maxwells, both restaurants which have a couple of branches around London. These are both good places to go to get a vast range of cocktails (if you can afford them).
