INDULGE IN A WEEKEND OF WELLBEING THIS BANK HOLIDAY IN COVENT GARDEN
This May Bank Holiday (3rd- 7th May), Covent Garden will become a wellness hub, as the estate is transformed with early morning outdoor yoga classes, wellness offers, aura readings and more. Shoppers and diners can discover pop-up gardens to relax and recharge in one of London’s least polluted districts.
From Thursday 3rd May to Monday 7th May, Covent Garden’s East Piazza will turn into a giant outdoor yoga studio for early morning yoga sessions, hosted by Lululemon and Psycle London. Visitors are welcome to sign up to join the free daily sessions from 8.30am each day. Post-class, yogis can head over to new Australian-meets-South American coffee house, Abuelo, to enjoy their selection of organic, farm to table breakfast or to Avobar, London’s first avocado cafe, on Floral Street, to enjoy a free smoothie and an exclusive 15% discount on food.
Covent Garden’s Central Avenue will play host to a pop-up market featuring stands from brands such as Lululemon selling a selection of yoga mats to get shoppers ready for outdoor yoga sessions. Atelier Cologne’s pure perfumes will be on offer for those looking for a new signature scent, whilst Crabtree & Evelyn’s wellness inspired products will allow you to escape everyday life.
The newly opened public courtyard Floral Court will be transformed into an enchanted garden of discovery with a magical and ethereal display for the Bank Holiday weekend by Petersham Nurseries, celebrating the launch of their two new restaurants – the perfect spot to step into a world of tranquillity and taste their delectable food offerings.
