Where to see the Christmas lights being switched on: London 2019
The streets of London are starting to twinkle once more. Few things signal the start of the festive season like seeing the Christmas lights being switched on. We round up the ‘three, two, one’ moments to catch this year.
Covent Garden once again becomes home to a giant, glittering Christmas tree, decorated with no fewer than 30,000 lights. But that’s not all that’ll shine in these quarters: 115,000 lights are set to twinkle across the Piazza and neighbouring streets, while plenty of festive entertainment is set to bring smiles to visitors' faces. Yet-to-be-revealed special guests are hosting the switch-on, which is taking place on 12 November.
