If you are considering relocating to London for a short- to long-term stay, you can’t go wrong with Covent Garden. One of the most vibrant areas in the capital and close to the West End, Covent Garden is filled with things to see and do, great places to eat and shop, and some of the nicest options for those looking to rent a furnished property in London.
Covent Garden is one of London’s most well-known shopping districts, making it the perfect choice for those who love a spot of retail therapy. But it’s not all shopping - walk through the cobbled streets to see some of the best street performers in the UK, or for some indoor entertainment, you can find the Royal Opera House and several other major London theatres nearby. The indoor Victorian marketplace in the plaza is a must-visit.
Foodies are in heaven in Covent Garden with a wide range of bars and restaurants to explore. Whether you’re looking for authentic stone-baked pizzas for a quick bite to eat or a gourmet meal, there’s a huge selection of options here with something for everybody. All-day brasserie Balthazar is a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike, where you can indulge in all-day bistro food and delicious wine, or head to Mr Fogg’s gin parlour for some of the best gins in the capital.
As a Central London location, Covent Garden is ideal for those relocating to London for work, with excellent transport links. You can be at Leicester Square in five minutes on foot, or it’s a quick tube journey to other key London locations such as Piccadilly Circus. You can easily walk to several major London transport hubs including Oxford Street and Waterloo, and there are several buses running through the area.
