LONDON, ENGLAND, U. K. — You know Christmas is on its way when Covent Garden erect their iconic Christmas tree, decorations and lights. This year’s tree, boasting over 30,000 lights, took a whopping 60 workers over 300 hours to prepare and decorate. The handpicked tree is the largest one in London, standing at 60ft and weighing 1,500 tonnes. While only essential stores are currently open in Covent Garden, the borough has been decorated with thousands of twinkling lights, making for a very enjoyable festive walk.
Covent Garden is London’s number one destination to celebrate Christmas and this festive season will be no different. This November the neighbourhood will transform into a dazzling hub with one of a kind al fresco experiences, world-class dining concepts and an unrivalled selection of gifts.
There may be no switch on extravaganza this year but that hasn’t damped the dazzle of our Christmas. 115,000 lights are now illuminating the neighbourhood with our 60ft Christmas Tree lighting up from the morning of Monday 9th November. Looking to feel festive? Covent Garden will remain open for you to visit and see the Christmas decorations.
