About Covent Garden Piazza

This is where Covent Garden Market takes place but there's also an open-air cobbled area where miming and juggling acts can often be found. The 40ish market stalls sell a variety of quality goods: antiques, craft items, pictures and handmade clothing so it's a great place to find gifts. More about Covent Garden Piazza
