We spent a warm and sunny Sunday meandering around Covent Gardens. Just a great way to spend the day.

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.

Every day is vibrant. Lots of people at week end in particular but that adds to the experience. Does not matter re restaurants. Might be worth booking a table if going at week end.
