A trip to London must include a visit to Covent Garden. Food, drinks, shopping and talented street performers blanket the area. Our visit made for a relaxing evening. Try and catch a performance by Sammie Jay; a very talented singer with an incredible voice.

There are not that many close to convent garden, however search for the hotel you want in London - the transport system especially the underground is fantastic and will get you anywhere you want to go.

There are some lovely hotels near by, I would suggest you go on Groupon website and see what deals are on. The Waldorf is sometimes available at hugely discounted prices.
