Covent Garden Christmas Lights 2015Notorious for its festive lighting extravaganzas, Covent Garden is one of London's most magical areas at Christmas. From 12th November the area is decorated with over 320 metres of garlands, 100,000 pealights, London's biggest hand-picked Christmas tree and a giant 22-feet tall silver reindeer. In 2015 the Christmas decorations, created by celebrated production designer Michael Howells, are themed around 'Meet Me Under the Mistletoe' with the Market Building illuminated by more than 40 magnificent mistletoe chandeliers - each ranging from 2.5 to 3.5 metres in size - and adorned with close to 700 glistening berries. The switch-on opens with London's first Mulled Wine Festival, from 12th to 14th November, and the grand unveiling takes place at 6pm on Thursday 12th November with music from a capella group AfterParty.

 

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
