At Covent Garden underground station, you’ll greet your guide and receive an introduction to the bustling area of Covent Garden. First, head to the iconic Covent Garden Piazza to soak up its vibrant atmosphere: enjoy performances from entertainers and discover hidden enclaves shrouded in history.
Admire landmarks such as St Paul’s Church and the Jubilee Market, and hear tales of the reputedly haunted Theatre Royal — the oldest theatre in London. Delve into the literary heritage of Henry Fielding during a visit to the author’s house and the Bow Street Police Station, and then visit the historical Lamb and Flag pub, which dates back to the 17th-century.
Next, you’ll amble over to Neal’s Yard — a quaint square home to artisan shops and brightly colored buildings — and admire the opulent façade of the Royal Opera House.
As you explore, you’ll listen to stories of literary heroes such as Jane Austen and Charles Dickens, and hear of famous Victorian actor William Terriss’ grisly end. After two hours, bid your guide farewell at central Covent Garden location.
