Covent Garden is a district in central London that attracts around 30 million tourists a year. It stands out with its wide range of shops, cafes, restaurants, but not only: from Covent Garden you can reach the main London attractions and many small hidden corners.

Marylebone is the perfect neighborhood if you want to spend a weekend in London with the kids in total relaxation.
