If the buzz of Oxford Street leaves you cold, this alternative Christmas destination could be just the thing. Centred around the piazza but also taking in some of the streets radiating from it, Covent Garden Christmas offers a wide range of festive treats, all of them beginning on Wednesday November 6 when the lights are switched on at 6pm. A range of other activities throughout the festive period includes the opening of a Lego advent calendar window every day from November 14 to December 22, reindeer petting every Saturday (November 9 to December 21, noon-4pm) and a run of an intimate, immersive Christmas pantomime by the Look Left Look Right theatre company, which takes audiences behind the scenes of Covent Garden in an adventure to reunite Prince Charming and Cinderella. Tickets for ‘Once Upon a Christmas’ (November 18-December 15) are available at https://ticket.ltmuseum.co.uk and are free with a £1.50 administrative fee. Performances run every seven minutes, with just two places are available for each show.

Looking forward to all the festive stuff at convent garden , can't wait to see the Lego advent ! Always ver informative on time out .⛄
I'm going to Covent Garden on this Special Day with my two sons. We're looking forward to this Christmas VERY,VERY MUCH as it would be our first Christmas in London !! We're coming all the way from MALTA to celebrate the Festive Season in this Fun and Special Way...Merry Christmas to All..
Covent Garden is always nice to pass by over the festive period and a nice break from the madness of Oxford St...always great if you can catch a street performer or two..while holding a hot drink in your hand ;).
I liked the idea of intimate Christmas theatre very much but tickets are currently sold at LT museum for £35 so I wouldn't call it free.
I go to Covent gardens quite a lot it has a great atmosphere and lots of interesting things happening if your in to shopping you have the market or the stalls , there,s also the street artists there very good most times , and if you get hungry there is lots of cafes and restaurants to chose from with a good variety of different foods I guarantee you will have a good day out
I adore Covent Garden, not only at Christmas but all year round! It has a wonderful atmosphere and the place really buzzes. However, Christmas is like a wonderland. I love the huge tree and all the fantastic decorations which reminds me of my childhood. The stalls are excellent and it is wonderful to see so many people who are extremely gifted presenting all the stunning merchandise. The restaurants and coffee bars are very atmospheric. I can't wait to visit!
Went to Covent Garden last year and it was BRILLIANT! and have booked hotel this month and will be there 17th November and cant wait the atmosphere is electric!
