Piazza Evening 2


Covent Garden may be a fashionable, up-to-the-minute shopping and dining destination, but the past remains embedded on the cobbled Piazza and arches of The Market Building.

Discover Covent Garden’s rich heritage through the centuries, from orchard garden of Westminster Abbey to London’s first residential square to London’s wholesale fruit and vegetable market.

An area also synonymous with performance, from humble beginnings recorded by Samuel Pepys as the birthplace of the ‘Punch & Judy’ puppeteer show, to the home of street performance today, Covent Garden has never missed a chance to put on a show.
