Chestertons Covent Garden

196 Shaftesbury Avenue, Covent Garden London WC2H 8JF

Covent Garden is a prime destination for anyone who is looking to enjoy excellent shopping and culture, with entertainment options ranging from the latest play or musical, to classical opera and ballet. You will be lost for choice with the excellent selection of both eateries and bars, making it the original entertainment district.

The nearby desirable areas of Holborn and the City make it a well-placed area for those who prefer to stroll to work, whilst neighbouring Bloomsbury offers a more tranquil environment with a choice of garden squares and museums.

Properties in Covent Garden and the surrounding areas offer many handsome mansion blocks, period conversions, and an increasing number of luxury new build developments without outstanding facilities. You will never be more than a 10 minutes’ walk from transport links connecting you to other Central location locations.

We are passionate about the area we work in; locally committed but globally connected
