Whenever I travel to London, I always have to pop by one of my favourite destinations: Covent Garden. It is on the fringes of the West End, between Charing Cross and Drury Lane. It has the most delightful English charm, with the quaint cobbled streets and classic architecture one envisions when they think of London.

The Royal Opera House is based in Covent Garden and somewhere I would completely and utterly recommend for anyone visiting! I saw my first opera there many years ago and it was an utterly phenomenal experience. I have quite an entertaining tale; when I first moved to London from Dorset it must be noted that my sense of direction was diabolical! I had tickets to see Bob Dylan and I somehow confused the Royal Albert Hall with the Royal Opera House which resulted in a panicked sprint to the correct venue! So some advice is, always plan your journeys before spontaneously venturing out – it will save you time!

Covent Garden is always renowned for having a fantastic array of shops including; Linda Farrow, Paul Smith, Barbour, Ted Baker, Chanel, Tom Ford, Olivia Burton, Jo Malone London, Dior and the hair salonTrevor Sorbie. I find it is not as overwhelming as Oxford Street and far easier to navigate for non-Londoners like myself.

In Covent Garden, you are completely spoiled for choice with the food options available. My personal favourite is the highly instagramable and delectable Avobar which is London’s first all avocado casual dining concept. The menu consists of an eclectic mix of some classic dishes with an exciting twist, such as the much-beloved avo toasts served on your choice of either sourdough or sweet potato ‘toast’, with toppings including smashed avo served with a homemade coconut labneh, beetroot hummus with feta and many more.

Such an Avocado masterpiece!

The infamous Avo Bun Burger

Heels are a personal choice but always remember to pack flats or some reliable plasters for any shoe-responsible emergencies!

Have a lovely time!
