'Instagrammable' Things to See and Do in Covent Garden


Hey Guys,

Last weekend I decided to make the most of the final summery days in London and head to one of my favourite places - Covent Garden! My love for this beautiful area began aged 12 when I used to take dance and drama classes every Sunday at Pineapple Studios on Langley Street. Then at age 18 I got my first ever job at the flagship Build a Bear store which used to sit nestled next to the Disney Store in the main square (both have since shut down- boo!) So I am no stranger to this corner of London, but it is an area that pulls me back again and again. 

Covent Garden is a place to suit every season. Come Spring and Summer, the entire piazza is covered in floral arrangements, street performers pop up on every corner and the sun's rays cuts through the square, creating beautiful golden hours. Autumn/Winter brings the most magical christmas displays with shoppers and tourists flocking to enjoy the annual giant christmas tree, the rows and rows of fairy lights and gorgeous window displays. If you are visiting London, I would highly recommend you add Covent Garden to your itinerary. I would leave between half a day to a whole day to explore. This blog post will take you on a mini Instagram-tour of the cutest spots Covent Garden has to offer. The spending money for my trip was kindly gifted by Hotels.com, but all views are my own.
