London Loves: Covent Garden

The summer seems like so long ago now, but we still have loads of photos from London that I haven't shown you. So how about another installment of my London Loves?

* * *

I am a big fan of Covent Garden. It is one of my favourite places in the West End. The shopping and food are fantastic, and it's home to the London Transport Museum, too.


I love the huge market hall with all its quaint little shops and vendors {and Accessorize! j'adore Accessorize...}

I can't get enough of the street performers and the enthusiastic crowds that gather round to watch them.

Dylan was mesmerized watching a comedian/magician, even though he could barely see for all the people! Eventually he got up on Alan's shoulders.


The boys were crazy for the sweet shop.

See what I mean?

Next time we're in England, I plan to spend a lot more time in Covent Garden. They've got some of the prettiest stationery ever. And the tea shop! I love it.

  1. covent garden is my favourite place in London - I went when I was about 10 to the theatre, fell completely in love and I fall even more every time I go back :)

    Did you go on the carousel? I took my cousin on it when we lived there and she always talks about it even now!
