Covent Garden Christmas Lights 2017The covered market at Covent Garden and the surrounding area is filled with 40 mistletoe chandeliers - each between 2.5 and 3.5 metres in size - and around 100,000 pea lights. 2017 sees the return of the magnificent reindeer statue on the East Piazza, a massive Christmas tree and over 320 metres of garlands running between the chandeliers. Notorious for its festive lighting extravaganzas, Covent Garden is one of London's most magical areas at Christmas, with mistletoe for the romantics.

 

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
