Even if you’re not a big fan of living statues or fire-eaters, Covent Garden’s cobbled piazza and market buildings are irresistible at this time of year. The decorations take on a mistletoe theme for 2015, with 50 new arrangements of lights hanging over the area's streets and in the pretty market buildings. A huge Christmas tree glows with red and white lights on the west side of the square, and a rather magnificent silver reindeer stands majestically on a pile of gifts on the east side. The Lego Santa Express train has pulled into the north east corner of the piazza, too, so make sure to pay that a visit. It's made of 500,000 Lego bricks and even has sounds, lights and smoke coming from its funnel.
