Getting to Covent Garden

Petersham Nurseries, Floral Court, London, WC2E 8JD
Situated in the heart of London and surrounded by the dramatic architecture of Covent Garden, there’s no better place to be this summer than sipping cocktails in the La Goccia courtyard. This secluded outdoor seating area, known on the site as ‘Floral Court’, is accessible from both King and Floral Street, but will transport you much further - to Tuscan skies and the vibrance of Italian al fresco dining.

On Foot 

The best way to get to this beautiful part of London is to walk. Covent Garden is very central, and probably much closer to other areas than you might think! We are about 30 minutes’ walk from King’s Cross and only 10 minutes from Piccadilly Circus.  

By Bike 

Covent Garden has ample bike racks, making cycling an easy mode of transport for your visit to La Goccia. There are racks on Southampton Street, Bow Street, and also on the corner of Russell Street and Wellington Street.  

We are a 15 minute bike ride from King’s Cross, 10 minutes from Waterloo and 15 minutes from Victoria! It couldn’t be easier.  

Other lovely bike rides that take around 30 minutes include from Clapham, Notting Hill, and Battersea – and we are only 20 minutes or so by bike from Chelsea. 

Underground 

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), Charring Cross (6-minute walk), Holborn (10-minute walk) and Waterloo (23-minute walk).   

By Bus 

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. 

By Car 

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.
