Not least 'Covent Garden' - indeed there is always something happening at Covent Garden Market, be it pure retail therapy, madcap fun from the renowned street performers in the West Piazza, sword-fighting knights to knife-swallowing acts in the North Hall, Opera in the Courtyard, or downstairs in the South Hall were you'll find leading opera singers and classical musicians.

With London's love of all things food - at Covent Garden Market you will find something to suit every taste. Romantic meals for two, pre-theatre drinks or post-theatre celebrations - just take your seat and watch the world go by.

So come on, times a wasting...pay it a visit.
