The tourist center of the West End in Central London, Covent Garden, has been sold to Capital & Counties, a company that owns a lot of shopping centers, says the BBC.

If you’ve never been to Covent Garden, I highly suggest a weekend day trip. It’s a fanatical mess of tourists but still a lot of fun. There is, of course, the market as well as many restaurants, theaters and the London Transport Museum (which I have yet to see but it’s on my list of things to do…). Oh, and there are usually a bunch of street performers, which can be mildly entertaining too. If taking the tube, get off at any other station besides Covent Garden. It’s too crowded on the weekends. Get out your London A to Z and walk from the next stop.
