The area
Neighbourhood: Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.

    Truffle Burger a la Jodie..super tasty burger
    Truffle Burger... Jodie and crew were working flat out, cooked to a bit pink in the middle are you OK with that..yes.. Jodie said to my lady... best burger he will have eaten.. Did not disappoint, was sooo tasty. Photos say it all. Seven Dials on a Saturday lunch was a bit manic, no one complaining though as food choices excellent. Will definitely be going back.

    Would recommend stopping and smelling the roses here
    Walked through Seven Dials multiple times. It might be my favourite neighbourhood in London. Absolutely loved all the little shops and the Christmas lights hung meeting at the center of the Seven Dials.

    Great little area
    Great little area just off Covent Garden. Easy to overlook in all the west end hype but a really great quirky, full of life little area. Well worth a stray out of Covent Garden to experience this little slice of hustle and bustle. Plenty of eating places.

    Leuke buurt
    Around 4 pm we walked to Seven Dials. The place itself is pretty, but we were most surprised by some of the stores and boutiques. Especially two stores specialized in drawing material drew our attention. Seven Dials Market is nice if you want a quick snack or drink. Lots of food to choose from.

A small part of Covent Garden that’s worth a visit if you like small independent shops. It’s a busy area but worthy of an hour’s exploration.

Great shopping options. Don’t do vintage shopping here as it is on the pricey side. Wish there was a better map of the stores and restaurants as it is easy to get turned around

We were watching Harry Potter at the Palace across and popped over to see the lights. It is a lovely walk with some good shops and eateries, such as sushi and hotdogs. There is a also a nice gallery where you can get some decent prints.

There is a beautiful fountain with lights, as well as some great shopping such as Neil’s cheeses.

It is called seven dials as it used to have seven lanes intersecting at this point. There is a good foodcourt here though we did not dine there this time.
