Christmas in London


There were certainly a wide variety of beautiful Christmas decorations in London when I was there but, I think I enjoyed all the decorations at Covent Garden the best.  The night I was there, the disco ball was spinning and the light it created looked like snow falling on the jazz group that was playing downstairs.


Just outside of the building, this giant "Rudolph" was the perfect meeting spot for shoppers.


On Regent Street, these pretty Christmas lights were keeping the street well lit.  


And inside the entrance to Fortnum & Mason, the grand staircase was wearing festive holiday decorations.

I love the disco ball effect! I haven't been to Covent Garden at night during the Christmas season. It's cool to see the change in the decorations at night -- I had no idea Rudolph's nose lights up, for example, though that certainly makes sense. :)

Everyone of your photos are beautiful.

I would not normally associate a disco ball and jazz group with Christmas, but you are right. It does convey the effect of snowfall.

You were lucky that the decorations were up a little early. I love that last one.

You were here at the right time. I've just got in from Covent Garden what a nightmare it is so crowded. And raining! Love your Big Ben photo. I've just been offered the big bus tour for two. Wish you were here to share it with me.

These all look wonderful. Christmas in cold places like London seems so much more authentic.
