Wandering around admiring Christmas lights and decorations is one of our favourite festive activities. You will definitely need gloves, a scarf and a hat for this blog, as it can get quite chilly!
- Carnaby Street
The Christmas lights on Carnaby Street is very impressive and eye-catching. Last year, the lights were made from recycled materials and you feel a sense of inspiration by great songs that are played!
- Covent Garden
Famous for it’s large silver reindeer, which everyone has loved for the last few years. Amongst the reindeer is a large Christmas tree covered in thousands of lights – the perfect place to take a picture.
Beautiful lights are displayed in the neighbourhood of Marylebone, which are normally turned on by a celebrity. You can also visit Santa in his grotto!
- Regent Street
Where the Christmas light tradition in central London began, Regent Street is the perfect place to go shopping and admire the beautiful lights. You definitely feel the Christmas spirit in the busyness of the city.
The next two activities are ticketed and we are not certain whether they will be available due to COVID-19, however we desperately hope they are!
- Enchanted Woodland, Syon Park
This woodland offers a colourful light display for the Christmas season. There are also some amazing visuals to see, as the lights form a trail around the lake. The tickets are around £10-15.
- Christmas at Kew
We did this for the first time last year and absolutely loved it. Different light displays by different artists are placed along a trial, taking you around the park. Our favourite was the lights arch, which has thousands of lights. The food stalls available along the walk are very tasty and offer different choices of hot drinks – including mulled wine! The tickets are around £10-15.
We hope you enjoy seeing all the different Christmas lights!
