Covent Garden Christmas Switch On 2017


There is a chill in the London air, which can only mean the seasons are changing and the time for merriment is almost upon us.

Make sure you embrace the Christmas spirit by celebrating the most wonderful time of the year in Covent Garden when we turn our Christmas lights on Tuesday 14th November.

Stay tuned for further details, but expect the return of our 40 magnificent mistletoe chandeliers - each ranging from 2.5 to 3.5 metres in size, and adorned with almost 700 glistening berries.

Over 320 metres of garlands unite the chandeliers, with around 100,000 pea lights suspended within the historic Market Building. Outside, the world famous Piazza will once again host London’s biggest hand-picked Christmas tree.

2017 will also see the return of our magnificent reindeer statue on the East Piazza!
