By Underground

Covent Garden is on the Piccadilly Line. Covent Garden’s tube station is a very short walk from the Market Building at the end of James Street. Covent Garden underground station only has lifts up from the platforms so it can be slow-going at busy times. During peak times we suggest getting off at Leicester Square (Piccadilly and Northern Line), which is a short walk to Covent Garden.
