Where

Covent Garden, one of London’s few extensive pedestrianised public spaces and with the best street entertainers in the capital, is a huge tourist attraction.

When the famous wholesale fruit and vegetable market moved to Battersea in 1974, the covered central market, designed by Charles Fowler and completed in 1830, with its fine glass and iron roof, provided a shell for a range of small shops, stalls and cafes.

These offer a range of British arts and crafts including jewellery, decorative items, designer clothes and books.

On Mondays the stalls are given over to antiques and collectables.

Stalls have also overflowed across Covent Garden Piazza into the Jubilee Hall (built in 1903). The separately run Jubilee Market concentrates on jewellery, antiques and collectables on Mondays, a large selection of clothes, handbags, cosmetics and souvenirs during the week and crafts at the weekend.
