About the tour

Join me on this enjoyable walk around one of London's most fashionable shopping and entertainment districts. In the heart of the capital Covent Garden began its life as a humble fruit and vegetable market for residents. Today it's one of the world's hippest retail therapy centres full of international labels and independent designers. We'll also see a legendary old pub, the Royal Opera House, a dark alley, a light tunnel, secret passages and pretty hidden courtyards. We'll talk about the history of the area, love stories and locals myths. Come do your screen shopping with me!

A pleasant tour which was titled 'Covent Garden, London's quirkiest shopping and entertainment district' but only about 5 minutes was spent in Covent Garden. I would have liked more information about what we were seeing on the screen, such as The Royal Opera House. This is such an interesting area with lots of history but I felt a little underwhelmed.
