London’s Festive Lights

London has been looking very Christmassy these couple of months, and on my recent walks around the city here’s some of what I’ve come across.

Covent Garden has lots of decorations up.

I really liked the lights on Oxford Street, especially the glittery, golden waterfall inside one of the department stores.

My favourites was the trees made up of fluorescent coloured lights at Liverpool Street, in Shoreditch.

It’s really lovely to see all the effort that has gone in to making London festive and bright for this time of year.

Oxford Street Christmas lights

Every Christmas Oxford Street in London is transformed into a wintry scene of sparkly, colourful lights and wonderful shop displays to get everyone in the mood not just for Christmas and the New Year but to give you warm, happy thoughts for the long, cold nights. As kids we were driven around to ooh and ahh over the pretty light displays and I had the same response when I went down over the weekend.

There were so many more beautiful shop and street displays to take in which I just didn’t get a chance to take photos of but if you’re ever in London over the festive period I really recommend a walk down this iconic London street to soak in the wintry atmosphere and admire the great light shows.
