Covent GardenA visit to Covent Garden is a must, whether you intend to shop, sightsee or soak in the carnival atmosphere. The focal point of Covent Garden, the market, has dominated the area ever since the Middle Ages when monks tended their market garden here. Since the 19th century the market has expanded. Watch out for mime artists - harmless but irritating. Covent Garden's side streets are a mecca for shop-hoppers because of the variety on offer. High Street outlets include Oasis, French Connection, Next, Hobbs, Marks & Spencer, Zara, All Saints and Mango. Menswear is available at Diesel, Replay, Firetrap and, for the smarter guy, Paul Smith. There are a huge number of women's fashion stores, while Neal Street is probably the best shoe shopping street in the capital, with numerous trendy outlets including Office and Size. If (perish the thought!) you tire of clothes shopping there are scores of excellent spots for a coffee. If you're still keen to shop remember to pay a visit to some of the excellent specialists shops in the area, selling anything from sweets to maps, cigars and cheese.
