"Covent Garden - Imported Christmas" London Tourist Trap Tip by Yosemite_44

London Tourist Traps: 435 reviews and 348 photos

This is not really a tourist trap, however it is one of the most overrrated attractions in London: Covent Garden. It is said to be great, especially around Christmas time. I went there last year and the Christmas market was 'imported' from Germany. The products were typically German, the people were German, there was even a German tourism stand.

If you like such a market, go to Germany. Frankly, I do like them. It was just disappointing to discover that London's X-mas market is a rip-off.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
