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 switch-on event will take place from 6pm on November 12, when the piazza will also host London's first mulled wine festival.
