Covent Garden PiazzaThis is where Covent Garden Market takes place but there's also an open-air cobbled area where miming and juggling acts can often be found. The 40ish market stalls sell a variety of quality goods: antiques, craft items, pictures and handmade clothing so it's a great place to find gifts. The area was formerly home to London's fruit and vegetable market, which has now moved down to the New Covent Garden Flower Market in Bermondsey.
