Time Out says

Covent Garden’s cobbled piazza and market buildings are even more irresistible at this time of year. The much-loved mistletoe chandeliers return in 2018 hanging over the area's streets and you can also expect another huge hand-picked Christmas tree glowing with festive lights and a rather magnificent silver reindeer standing on the east side of the piazza. 

Look out for details of this year’s switch on performance which takes place on Tue Nov 13.

I'm a London local and I get REALLY MAD (SO MAD I HAVE TO USE CAPITALS) when I'm around Covent Garden because it's touristy and overcrowded. That said, this year it's absolutely worth a wander over the Christmas period. One of the prettiest displays I've seen across London includes great mistletoe decorations, a huge big Christmas tree tied with an enormous bow and a very sweet festive train on the main piazza. If this doesn't get you in the Christmas spirit, I don't know what will.

Beautiful Christmas lights and the ever present hand crafted merchandise, we even listened to some Vivaldi. Loving Covent Garden!

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!
