The Covent Garden London Audio Guide by Bluebrolly

Only in London for a few days, and would like to take in some culture, but also get the chance for some shopping and relaxing? Then Covent Garden is definitely the walk for you! Very few people can resist the allure of the area which is a heady mix of markets, theatres, churches, cafĂ©’s, bars and restaurants. All of these elements are brought together in the historic setting of Inigo Jones’ landmark Piazza designed in the 17th Century. This vibrant and exciting area of central London is unique in having not only a long and varied history, but also some of the best retail therapy in the capital!

Our walk allows you maximum opportunity for browsing the shops and stalls, watching the talented street artists perform in the square and enjoying some refreshment en route. The audio guide is available for streaming or to download on AmazoniTunesGoogle Play MusicSpotify.
