    Love Covent Garden especially at Christmas and you don’t need to be a tourist to appreciate the beauty and ambience. Christmas lights were divine and the huge tree was fabulous. Started to feel like Christmas for us after visiting.

    Visited before christmas. Very festive, beautifully decorated and a real Christmas vibe. First weekend in December and already quite busy but just added to the atmosphere. Long queues for hot food but such an amazing choice and all looked good value.

    A hub for street food and artisans and shopping! So much to see and do. Perfect for not on the high street clothing and accessories!

    What a place, been many a times over the years and it gets better and better.

    The atmosphere is unbelievable at night and especially in November/ Xmas lights.

    The only thing I would say is if you bring luggage, you are not allowed in.
    There was an option to pay £40 to leave in a room at the side of Harrods (this was expensive for a few hours) but this has now gone.
    We ended up taking our luggage to a shop over the road for £5!
    Sorry can’t remember the name but the security on Harrods will tell you, it’s about 10 mins walk.

    Overall, love it and always will, just wish I had the money to buy everything!

    Bedknobs and Broomsticks says it best: "Anything and everything a chap can unload is sold off the barrow in Portobello Road."
    The market is MUCH larger than we initially thought, and as we were on a time crunch we didn't get to see all of it, but you could easily spend 3-4 hours exploring; we visited on a Saturday, which is the busiest day of the week and best time to see everything. Some items were overpriced and some stalls were full of rubbish, but that's to be expected at any market. We found some great bargains and came away satisfied.
    If you're not a fan of giant crowds, try to get here when the market opens at 9 and start making your way through; the large crowds didn't really start to form until after 10:30-11am. There are a couple of public toilets available that are free to use and various ATMs scattered around, though there were always big queues for these, so only use if desperately needed. There are signs everywhere warning of pickpockets, so make sure you've always got a grip on your bag and keep your phone/wallet away when not needed!

    Nice place to shop. Has the same shopping center atmosphere most malls do. Very interesting to see shops we don't have at home.

    Lovely to browse the flower stalls but it does get very busy! Be prepared for crowds.

    I found the plants great value for money but the cut fresh flowers are expensive in my opinion.

    It's a gigantic shopping mall and has good parking, for accessing the shops and the to other parts of London by tube. Perfect for our visit to the Velodrome.

    Perhaps one of the under-rated markets in London. It is not busy, but the architecture is beautiful. Not many stores, but there are pubs and tea to enjoy.

    Since the death of Queen Elizabeth II, The Queen's Gallery has become a more poignant place. A surprising exhibition that continues there is "Japan: Courts and Culture". The British Royal Family has been collecting Japanese works of art for a long time. There has also been an occasional kinship between these two island nations, although their shared history hasn’t always been happy. As few of those who fought in the Second World War are still living, attention can revert to the more productive partnership of the First World War. On that occasion Japan was an ally of the UK in the war against Germany.

    Despite one or two omissions, the Royal Collection has ended up with a glorious diversity of Japan’s greatest aesthetic triumphs. From the huge screens that provided privacy and colour in drab and draughty samurai castles, to the tiniest netsuke toggles, the full spectrum of Japanese art is on display. Among the less obvious elements, presumably because they were low-budget disposable merchandise, are the ukiyo-e woodblock prints that fascinated the likes of Van Gogh and Monet.

    Japan: Courts and Culture is an assemblage with a regal flavour. As with the concept of monarchy itself, this exhibition takes the long view – and there is no country with a longer dynastic history than Japan.

    Lots of choice and appeared very popular. Not the cheapest but looked to be some good value choices.
    My burger was very good and I don’t eat burgers very often so it had to be!
    I’d come back if in the area again and would prefer to eat here than Borough market.

    We just dropped in as we’d heard good things about this market. We’re so pleased we did. Great food and lovely community of traders and local customers. The real deal. We will come again. X
