One of London’s most iconic and recognisable destinations, perhaps from the outsider’s perspective nothing more than a hub for tourists, shoppers, theatre goers or opera aficionados, but scratch the surface and there is so much more to discover about this thriving community…
Destination. Neighbourhood. Community.
Whilst Covent Garden’s storied past is well documented, perhaps best by recent BBC documentary ‘The People’s Pizza: A History of Covent Garden‘, the modern evolution is a globally recognised area renowned for its world class shops, theatres, restaurants and of course the iconic Piazza & Royal Opera House.
Through careful curation and thoughtful redevelopment of some wonderful historic buildings, as well as the addition of a number of thoroughly modern developments, Covent Garden has returned to its roots as a desirable residential neighbourhood to rival the best addresses in London, with a genuine community feel amongst its residents.
Why Covent Garden?
Covent Garden residents have access to some of the capital’s finest restaurants and retailers, not to mention world class cultural attractions in the form of the Royal Opera House and numerous theatres, museums and galleries. Educational powerhouses The London School of Economics, King’s College and University of London all have major campuses nearby, making the neighbourhood an ideal home for culture vultures and students alike.
The Very Heart of London
Tiring of the Covent Garden lifestyle is pretty much impossible, there’s just so much to do! But if you feel the need to spread your wings, Soho, Mayfair, the City of London and the South Bank are all within easy reach, not to mention numerous transport options including tube, crossrail, mainline rail and river boat, making the area one of the most well connected neighbourhoods in the capital.
