Covent Garden Market

Whilst Covent Garden Market is not a department store as such, the building itself accommodates a diverse range of specialist shops and the best of British Arts & Crafts Market (Tuesday to Sunday) and Antiques & Quality Collectables Market every Monday. The mix of shops and market traders provide a welcome alternative to the high street, and the majority of the market traders will take commissions.There are many designer shops,including Emporio Armani in Long Acre,Koh Samui & Alexander Campbell in Monmouth Street,Nicole Farhi at the Piazza. The area's history of entertainment is kept alive by a variety of opera singers, string quartets, jugglers, comedians, and even the Tango. Interspersed with bars, cafes and restaurants, the atmosphere at the Market is one of great fun, and exploration - and has the bonus of being traffic free. Set in the heart of one of London's most vibrant and culturally diverse quarters, it is the quintessentially British place to shop.
