Christmas in Covent Garden

Christmas has started in Covent Garden and it is set to be the most magical yet.

This year sees the return of our iconic decorations, legendary Christmas tree, an immersive LEGO installation, many mulled wine varieties and of course, the daily snowfall. New for this festive season is a Frozen takeover, a traditional Christmas Village complete with bauble dining domes, a Christmas Sandwich Festival and much more. All this can be found in our open air, pedestrianised Piazza and surrounding streets which are filled to the brim with great brands, heated terraces and the best dining in the West End.

Festive Day in Covent Garden

With only a handful of weeks until Christmas, Covent Garden is the perfect place to buy your presents, get them wrapped and then have a takeaway mulled wine and mince pie afterwards as a reward for a job well done.

Looking for something you can only get in Covent Garden? How about something you can get personalised? You will find all this and more in our open-air pedestrianised Piazza, plus you might even find some surprises along the way. Who knows, it might even be snowing.

Mulled Wine in Covent Garden

There’s nothing like a comforting cup of mulled wine to warm your cockles, and there’s something magical about the aroma of sweet spices - like cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves - that really puts you in the festive mood. In Covent Garden there are plenty of places to indulge in a winter warmer, whether you’re out to party or in need of a break from shopping. And if you don’t fancy a tipple, you can still enjoy mulled wine flavours in alternative form…
