Uncovering the Hidden Gems and Things to Do in Covent Garden *

Covent Garden is one of the hot-spots in London, and is certainly on a tourists must see list. Sitting in the midst of the West End it is easy to dismiss this as just a square with some boujee boutiques, and street performers. It is anything but.
