I love Covent Garden Market and it is my fav place for meeting people and enjoying a lunch or dinner in London. You can also do some good shopping whilst there, and an enjoy watching some of the street shows that are often staged in the area.

What a wonderful place. You get a bit of everything in this market area. There are lots of shops ... Great variety from up-market, to unique (bought cool cuff links which were the inside of a watch so cool) , to your tacky tourist items ( got sweaters and engraved Christmas ornaments at a bargain price) and everything in between....

We had a lovely time here going firstly through all the hand made crafts, which were fantastic. Then chilling listening and watching the street performers. Such a wonderful place just to take some time out of the huddle and bustle of London life. Purchased a few bits and pieces from some vendors. And had a wonderful time.

Interesting market with varied stalls, some similar so more variety is always good. Not too pricy for London, some lovely and unusual things to buy and most handmade.

We went to the Apple Market looking for things English, specifically a tea cozy and a wall tapestry. There was not one of these types of English things. What we found was a group of people, many of whom were not even British, selling the inevitable jewelry, and more jewelry, paintings of London, candles and other homemade crafts. There were... More
