> Covent Garden
From the fashionable boutiques and unusual gifts of Covent Garden Market to the wonders of Neal Street, Covent Garden is a haven for shopping.
Check out the British hand-made arts and crafts and unique antiques in the Apple Market and the huge variety of stalls on offer in the Jubilee Market.
On Mondays, Jubilee Market is dedicated to Antiques; from Tuesday-Friday, a General Market operates, with traders selling clothing and household goods, and on Saturday and Sunday Jubilee Market offers arts and crafts.
Covent Garden Tube Station can be reached on the Piccadilly line, but is also only a short walk from Leicester Square and Charing Cross stations.
Several bus stops along the Strand will drop you minutes from the piazza.
