Christmas in Covent Garden

If you're looking to get your Christmas on, a place i love to visit is Covent Garden, in London. Thankfully London really knows how to do Christmas, and my second place to visit is Oxford Street but that can get a little hectic. Although Covent garden can be equally busy, there seems to be a little more space and it doesn't feel so claustrophobic. Covent Garden always has a beautiful arrangement of decorations and you can't help but feel festive.

My favourite have to be the gigantic red baubles hung in the main area and the the big green & red candy canes strung in the alleyways between the shops. They're just so classically festive, and something that always reminds me of Christmas in Covent Garden each year. There's nothing i love more than wandering the halls of the markets and admiring the beautiful decorations, hung throughout. For me, Covent Garden has a real atmosphere and a really magical feel, especially at this time of the year.

Something that you simply can't miss is the giant grass Rudolph Reindeer statue and the Christmas tree strung with big, red baubles. Here is something newer, and more modern and something very classic. It's like mixing the past and the future, and there's something i really quite like about that. I, personally, am all for the traditional when it comes to Christmas but there's something about that reindeer that's darn cute!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, and i'd be interested to know your favourite spots this Christmas.
