This production from Look Left Look Right, the theatre company known for its interactive and immersive productions (including Above And Beyond at the Corinthia Hotel), takes you on a journey around the shops, restaurants and hidden places of Covent Garden, including the London Transport Museum.

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
