Getting to Covent Garden
The best way to get to Covent Garden and discover its secret passages and surrounding areas is to walk. Access to Covent Garden by car is limited.
Covent Garden is on the Piccadilly Line. Covent Garden’s tube station is just a two-minute walk from either of our entrances at both Floral Street and King Street at the end of James Street.
Other tube stations include: Leicester Square (5-minute walk), Charing Cross (6-minute walk), Holborn (10-minute walk) and Waterloo (23-minute walk).
There are bike racks in Southampton Street, Bow Street, and on the corner of Russell Street & Wellington Street.
The RV1 stops at Covent Garden. The 9, 13, 15, 23, 139 and 153 all stop at Trafalgar Square and Aldwych (just a short walk). The No. 24 stops at Leicester Square; Covent Garden is signposted from there.
If possible, it is best to avoid driving to Covent Garden as parking is very restricted. There is limited on-street parking with meters on some surrounding roads.
If driving, it is essential to remember to pay the Congestion Charge. The charge can be paid online, in selected shops and petrol stations, by post, by SMS from your mobile phone or by phone on +44 (0)20 7649 9122. Two of the largest car park providers in central London are Masterpark and NCP.
