Galentine's Day in Covent Garden

Covent Garden has your 13th February covered with our top things to do this Galentine's Day. Friendship comes first so grab your girls (or guys!) and get together in the heart of London for sharing that bestie love.

What is Galentine's Day? Made famous by Amy Poehler’s character, Leslie Knope, in the US TV series Parks and Recreation, this fictional holiday became popular in the real world ever since the initial “Galentine’s Day” episode in 2010.

“It’s only the best day of the year! Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it—breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies.”
