I’m pretty confident Bing Crosby wasn’t singing about Covent Garden all those years ago, but here in 2022, you can be sure we’ll be singing about Covent Garden all season long. The piazza is already home to 115,000 twinkling lights, London’s largest hand-picked Christmas tree, and giant mistletoe chandeliers, but in a bid to make Christmas even more magical, Covent Garden will now find itself dusted with snow throughout the Christmas season – starting today!
We’ve been watching the weather forecasts recently, and it looks like this is the only snowfall on the horizon for the capital (sleet? Maybe. Snow? Nope.) It’s also the only way of guaranteeing snow this winter, and should make your festive snaps even more wintry. Best of all, the snow – which in the past has been found falling in front of that giant Christmas tree – has been created to be entirely sustainable.
Mesmerising as snowfall in Central London is, it’s far from the only enchanting thing to see at Covent Garden this year. Quite aside from all of Covent Garden’s decorations, you’ll also have access to a plethora of tasty food options around the area, including four storey townhouse 3 Henrietta Street; Big Mamma group’s sensation Ave Mario, The Oystermen, Balthazar, and many more.
Plus, the Christmas Sandwich festival, which made its debut last year is returning — held across multiple beloved Covent Garden restaurants. If last Christmas is anything to go by, you can also expect many a pop-up offering tasty Christmas sarnies!
Really, we can’t think of a better way of enjoying a white Christmas while remaining in the capital! The Covent Garden snow returns from today (December 1), but keep your eyes fixed on the Covent Garden website for further details as they are announced!
