A quide to Covent Garden in London from a commercial perspective. The guide is aimed at business looking for office space in Covent Garden or London in general.

Covent Garden: a commercial guide for businesses looking for office space in London
Michael Fraser:

Covent Garden is West of Soho and West of Holborn, which some people call Midtown. One of its main attractions is Charing Cross Station, which serves a huge area from a transport point of view. Then the area has many tube stations, again hard to be far away from one of them.

The background to Covent Garden was at the centre of it, now called the Piazza, was the old fruit and veg market. This was redeveloped some years ago and it has to be said redeveloped in a fabulously successful way, and is now retail, food and the Piazza itself. Where there’s a lot of, I think what’s called, street entertainment, which if you happen to be passing is absolutely wonderful to watch some of the things that people do there.

But what’s particularly interesting about Covent Garden as a office location is that it’s very, very popular with the young. Covent Garden has all the offers of retail, food, lots of other things that make the young really like it. So if you’re a company that has a lot of 35 and under employees, Covent Garden is quite an interesting location to look at. ‘Cause your staff will be happy with it and you may find it easier to attract more staff because that’s where you are.

We have one company who we’ve dealt with for years, who moved there, specifically for that reason and it’s been a great success. Generally all types of offices are available in Covent Garden, grade A, middle of the road, and more modest space. So really the main thing of interest about the area is the old market and the Piazza, which for me it reminds me very much of Faneuil Hall in Boston, which was a very similar redevelopment. Though I’m not quite sure whether Faneuil Hall or Covent Garden was done first.

About Covent Garden

Offices in Covent Garden

Covent Garden is situated east of Soho, north of the River Thames and west of Holborn at the beginning of London’s Midtown area which occupies the space between the West End and the City of London.

Covent Garden is one of London’s best office locations, with world class restaurants, shops, leisure facilities and great communications.

Once home to London’s main fresh fruit and vegetable market, the centrally located original buildings have been converted into a vibrant retail area, containing restaurants, shops and a central piazza. Quality street theatre and buskers are a regular and highly visible feature of Covent Garden life which draws in the tourists.

Covent Garden also boasts the Royal Opera House, Theatre Royal Drury Lane, and the London Transport Museum.

Offices in Covent Garden are attractive to a wide range of businesses, largely due to the area’s contemporary cultural atmosphere, particularly valuable when the occupier’s workforce is predominantly young.
