Covent Garden, CENTRAL LONDON APARTMENTS

Serviced Apartments in Covent Garden

Our handpicked Covent Garden apartments offer luxurious self-catered accommodation in one of London’s most fascinating, vibrant districts. Nestled away within London’s West End, Covent Garden is something of a beating heart within the capital, blending the city’s depth of history, lively traditions and quirks with a strong commercial backdrop.

Stunningly designed with sleek, contemporary interiors, these apartments provide guests with a host of facilities, services and modern conveniences. Visitors will also be enviably located being within walking distance of a number of iconic theatres, museums, shopping areas and local amenities.

Staying in Covent Garden

The renowned Covent Garden Piazza was designed and laid out in 1630, making it London’s first modern square. The Piazza is lined with plush restaurants and bars that often provide outdoor seating in the warmer months.

Covent Garden is a lively and dynamic hub of all things entertainment related. Most will know Covent Garden for its talented array of street performers that entertain throngs of tourists throughout the day. Many aren’t aware that, given its high-profile central location, all performers are actually required to pass an initial audition in order to get their hands on an allocated slot.

Away from the attractions of district’s central square, many flock to Covent Garden in order to catch a West End show in one of the many esteemed theatres and prestigious entertainment venues. A number of the nearby landmarks date back as far at the 18th century and many local buildings are Grade II listed, providing the area with an elegant, refined atmosphere.

Where is Covent Garden in London?

Located between Charing Cross and Kingsway, Covent Garden is based within the sprawling Royal Borough of Westminster, and makes up the eastern fringes of London’s iconic West End. Shaftsbury Avenue and High Holborn mark the northern borders of the district, while The Strand and Victoria Embankment can be found to the south.

As with many of the London’s inner-city districts, Covent Garden is steeped in history. In the 13th century, the entire area was partly walled off by Westminster Abbey for the use of arable land. The area was then known as The Garden of the Abbey and Covent, which later became The Covent Garden.

The Strand, one of London’s biggest and grandest thoroughfares, is only a short walk from the Covent Garden Piazza. Throughout history the Strand has always been a glamorous, prosperous area. Between the 12th and 17th centuries the area was home to aristocrats and the upper classes of the bustling capital. The Strand also benefits from a fine literary history after accommodating the likes of Charles Dickens, Virginia Woolf and Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Things to do in Covent Garden

The staggering amount of West End theatres found within Covent Garden bathe the area in cultural pedigree. The Lyceum Theatre, the Novello Theatre and the Adelphi Theatre are but to name a few of the most prestigious venues in Convent Garden, while the Duchess Theatre may be smaller but what it lacks in size it makes up for with its intimate atmosphere.

Given the sheer amount of distinguished theatres in the district, the area’s other assets are often unfairly overlooked. The London Film Museum is a relatively recently established institution, founded in 2008, providing an array of exhibits and displays dedicated to the British Film Industry. Exhibitions have ranged from Charlie Chaplin to James Bond and include props, costumes and sets from a range of films.

Outside of the Covent Garden Piazza, Somerset House is the biggest tourist draw in the area, attracting tourists with its stunning architecture and various activities and attractions. Somerset House is a huge Neoclassical building, built in 1776, based close to the banks of the River Thames. Is it largely known for its ice skating ring in the winter months and for hosting all manner of events ranging from film festivals to mime festivals.

Place to eat in Knightsbridge

Covent Garden accommodates a diverse range of eateries that offer foods and delicacies from all around the globe. The central square is awash with refined establishments offering quick dishes such as pizza and burgers, while Bodeon’s, a local smokehouse, has become a paradise for meat lovers.

Not just one of Covent Garden’s most smart and stylish dining spots, but one of London’s too, Simpson’s in the Strand offers a classy dining experience which is ideal for true romantics. The restaurant is known to date back to 1828 and is spectacularly adorned with hanging chandeliers and wooden panelled walls.

For those keen on a more traditional dining experience, Punch & Judy – a pub in central Covent Garden – is a lively spot with a good selection of drinks and an appealing menu too. The pub is notably spacious, spread over several floors and also featuring a balcony and outdoor seating area.

First time staying in a London apartment?

There’s something enchanting about turning the key into your own London apartment. Having a private apartment in London – complete with plenty of space and a kitchen of your own – helps to make you feel like a real London local. Enjoy the comforts of home and the benefits of living on your own schedule with mealtimes on your terms, and the privacy provided with separate bedrooms and living spaces.

You’ll still get to take advantage of some hotel-style services like maid services and fresh linens. Some apartments also have their own reception and security personnel, for your added convenience and peace of mind.
