These days, Covent Garden is best-known for its iconic covered market. However, in medieval times, the location was actually a walled garden, which formed part of the land surrounding Westminster Abbey. In the 1600s, this all changed. The Earl of Bedford (who owned the land) transformed the area into a hotspot for the city’s wealthy families. While these 17th century properties have now all gone, the air of exclusivity still lingers to this day.
Now, if you wander around Covent Garden’s famous piazza, you’ll encounter street performers, open-air theatrical events, cafes serving al fresco drinks, and much more. It’s a unique atmosphere, and one that keeps visitors coming back, time and time again.
