Christmas in Covent GardenLast Christmas actress Emilia Clarke, Emma Thompson and Director Paul Feig officially switch on the Covent Garden Christmas lights on Tuesday 12th November, along with the West End cast of The Snowman at a festive evening hosted by Ronan Keating and Harriett Scott. Following the 'switch on' moment, the covered market at Covent Garden and the surrounding area are filled with 115,000 lights, a 60 foot Christmas tree decorated with 30,000 lights and giant mistletoe and glitter balls in the Market Building. The whole Covent Garden area is a must-see at this time of year with a Christmas cart serving minced pies and mulled wine, the Henrietta bringing us the festive Miracle pop-up bar and Santa's secret hideaway and storytelling sessions at the London Transport Museum. On top of all that, with shops like Laduree, Jo Malone and Whittard under one roof you can source gifts for all from heavenly scents to posh tea.

 

About Covent Garden Piazza

This is where Covent Garden Market takes place but there's also an open-air cobbled area where miming and juggling acts can often be found. The 40ish market stalls sell a variety of quality goods: antiques, craft items, pictures and handmade clothing so it's a great place to find gifts. More about Covent Garden Piazza
