Let's Go Alfresco in London's Covent Garden

Covent Garden is well-known for the atmosphere, with the markets, street entertainers and plenty of outdoor dining, it's the perfect place to go as lockdown eases. Outdoor dining is set to come back into play on the 12th of April and we are counting down the days until we can be back at some of our favourite spots and it's made even better with the lovely weather well on the way.

Covent Garden Piazza

The historic pedestrianised piazza was laid out in 1630 and is the central square of the area. The open space is popular with street performers and is home to some iconic restaurant spots.

In The Market Building

This original market would encourage people from all over to pick up their produce. Its popularity ended with the actual market being moved somewhere else and it is now a lively area with street stalls, shops and places to eat. The covered area is a perfect spot to dine outdoors when the weather takes a turn.
