The Londoner's Guide to London
Get in the festive mood at the special Christmas at Covent Garden events, featuring fantastic light displays, a Lego surprise, gourmet food markets and much, much more.
Sure to be a massive attraction for the crowds in November and December, the festive lights display makes for a visually stunning Christmas at Covent Garden. The lights have once again been designed by the award winning United Visual Artists, and provide a dazzling and contemporary alternative to the traditional light displays taking place elsewhere in London.
Covent Garden Christmas Lights
Last year, in addition to the Christmas lights, visitors to the Covent Garden Piazza were also able to see the first ever advent calender made completely out of Lego. This year promises another special Lego surprise, however what it is has yet to be announced, however you can expect a return of the 15 foot topiary reindeer, the 60ft tree and the giant red baubles to be seen in the glass atrium of the Market Building.
Festive Real Food Market
The hugely successful Real Food Market is gearing up for Christmas at Covent Garden by stocking a range of seasonal gourmet fare for food fans. Sip on mulled wine, nibble on a mince pie and snap up some award winning stilton and luxury Christmas cake for your festive larder.

Once Upon a Christmas
A special immersive festive pantomime is also on offer in the run up to Christmas, with a special
world premiere of Once Upon a Christmas, a grown up pantomime that blends reality with fantasy. Meanwhile, kids can pet live reindeer on the Saturdays leading up to Christmas, so why not come along and celebrate Christmas at Covent Garden with all this going on and more.
