The Transport Museum is located just across the Covent Garden Market. We walked over to browse at the stalls that sell goods ranging from clothes, books, arts, crafts, decorative items and antiques, etc.  We bought an old fashion alarm clock here for Nanzaro as he always has a hard time waking up in the morning.

The Piazza and Central Market is surrounded by open-air cafes, stylish shops and bars. It’s one of London’s liveliest and most chic area. We did try to get a bite at one of the pub but it was too noisy and crowded. Moreover, eating in an open-air cafe in such a cold night did not appeal to me. We decided to eat somewhere else and ended up having Chinese buffet in Chinatown for comfort food.
