Full description
Meet at the former fruit market of Covent Garden, now home to street performers, craft stalls, and boutique shops, and wander the cobbled streets before looking inside St. Paul's Church to discover one of London's best kept secrets.

Follow in the footsteps of Charles Dickens and explore the hidden alleys as your guide tells tales of Ebenezer Scrooge. Continue to Leicester Square in the heart of the West End to take in some genuine Victorian settings. Learn how Queen Victoria shaped modern Christmas, and browse the stalls of the festive market while you discuss the origins of Santa Claus.

Go to one of Dickens' favorite pubs for a mulled wine, cider, or non-alcoholic drink, served with a traditional mince pie. Continue to Trafalgar Square to explore Christmas past, present, and future surrounded by some of the city's most iconic buildings. Cross the River Thames and take magical photos of the London Eye before arriving at the Southbank Christmas Market, where great food and festive cheer await.
