Covent Garden

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.

For For A King

First opening as the Theatre Royal in 1732, The Royal Opera House is now in its third guise with the current building dating from around 1858

Seven Dials

Seven Dials is a charm-packed lifestyle & gastronomy hub connecting Covent Garden with Soho, defined by seven characterful cobbled streets radiating from the unmistakable sundial dating from the 1690’s.


Soho is surely the epitome of London life, the beating heart of the West End, a vibrant enclave where history, creativity and a sense of rebellion collide to create a truly original and unrivalled neighbourhood. Globally recognised for its bohemian spirit, Soho has been a haunt for artists, writers, poets and musicians for centuries. Modern Soho is a paradise for creatives, culture vultures, foodies and night owls.


An enclave of only 14 streets in the north west corner of Soho, yet Carnaby is very much a neighbourhood in its own right. Carnaby Street is world renowned as the epicentre of Swinging London in the 1960’s, and has continued its association with fashion and youth culture to this day.


Chinatown is a vibrant enclave where East meets West, nestled between Soho, Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus and Covent Garden. A captivating oasis of Asian cuisine and culture, adorned with ornate Chinese gates and colorful lanterns.

St. Martin’s & Strand

St. Martin’s Lane is Covent Garden’s western border, a bustling thoroughfare linking Seven Dials with Trafalgar Square and a gateway to the wider West End. Strand is the southern boundary of Covent Garden running parallel to the River Thames and linking the cities of London & Westminster. A neighbourhood that offers everything from river views and world class theatres, to green open space and village vibes.


Bloomsbury is a little slice of bohemian paradise in the heart of London, historic streets lined with handsome Georgian townhouses, leafy garden squares and a vibe that oozes culture & creativity.

Holborn & St. Giles

Holborn is the gateway from the City of London to the West End and home to the UK’s legal profession. Situated around the grand garden square of Lincoln’s Inn Fields, it’s home to many top law firms, barrister’s chambers and the London School of Economics & Political Science.
