Covent Garden is famous the world over as a shopping destination. You'll find a wide variety of shops set in a very attractive environment.
Covent Garden is renowned for its markets. The Apple Market in the central market building is home to stalls selling the best of British craft, which change daily. Typically, you'll find jewellery, homeware and perfect gifts. Every Monday, the market sells antiques. You can also head to the Jubilee Market to find unique gift ideas and quirky trinkets.
Covent Garden is a great place to shop for kids. There are some unusual toyshops that you won't find on an average high street. Benjamin Pollock's Toyshop specialises in traditional wooden toys, theatres and puppets. Buy books, toys and merchandise at The Moomin Shop, or swing by the TinTin Shop, a must for fans of Herge's Belgian hero and his friends. Children will also love getting their hands on the latest toys from The Disney Store and the Build-a-Bear workshop, both based in the piazza.
Covent Garden is a great place to pick up luxury cosmetics and gourmet food. For the perfect end to all that shopping, make two final stops. Firstly head to L'Occitane for some luxury bath oils and then pop into Godiva for some chocolates to eat while you wallow. Bliss!
