London’s Best Christmas Lights

The Victorians practically invented Christmas !

Love Christmas? If you don’t already know it – London is spectacular at Christmas. Cards, carols, crackers – even Dickens. Yes, Dickens’ Christmas Carol of Scrooge and Tiny Tim fame. The Victorians practically invented Christmas as we know it.

If you are lucky enough to be visiting London during the festive season you’ll certainly be in for a treat: from the bright lights of Regents and Oxford Street, to the ice rinks and Christmas trees spread all across town, here’s a quick rundown of some of our favourite London festive lights to help get you in the spirit.

 

Covent Garden Plaza:

Steal a kiss under the mistletoe by the famous christmas tree of Covent Garden for that perfect Hollywood moment. Don’t forget to take a visit to the market for some great gift ideas and enjoy a fun stroll down the Candy Cane walk, amongst the fragrances of roasting chestnuts and mulled wine.

 

Regent Street& Oxford Street

Look out for the traffic free weekends taking place throughout December at what is one of the world’s best locations for Christmas lights. Thanks to ACT Lighting Design (the team who have previously worked on the Champs Elysees, Paris), Regent Street will look absolutely spectacular once again this year. Expect music and special guest appearances throughout the season – and would Christmas in London really be Christmas without a visit to Hamley’s toy store?

 

Carnaby Street

Carnaby Street are putting on a Christmas party for shoppers this year. Shops, bars and restaurants are also offering savings, so make sure to grab a bargain while enjoying the light shows. And if that was not enough, live music and DJs are sure to keep everyone on high festive spirits throughout the season in this quirky London neighbourhood.

 

The Royal Exchange

For a more traditional christmas tree, the huge tree at the Royal Exchange found in the City of London is hard to beat. What’s more, the East London Chorus choir will be supplying Christmas Carols for all at its official switch on this year.

 

If you’re looking to learn about Christmas in London and take in the beautiful holiday lights (along with many off the beaten path secrets), London Magical Tours is offering the chance to discover the best of the holiday season during their London Christmas Lights Tours through November and December until the 6th of January 2016.

A Magical Christmas in ‘Amazing London’

Here at London Magical Tours nothing makes us happier than hearing how much you enjoyed your tour with us. We would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone and share one of our favourite letters to Santa Claus that was filled out as part of our London Christmas Tours.

We would like to wish everyone a Magical Christmas and very happy 2015!

Dear Santa Claus,

The bestest thing I have seen in amazing London today was beautiful Buckingham Palace. I chose beautiful Buckingham Palace because it was fun seeing the solgers do there march and seeing the special flag on top of the beautiful buckingham palace. My most favourite part was seeing the lovely horses taking a carafe on the back. I loved seeing amazing London!

How London is transformed into a Winter Wonderland – Christmas 2014

Christmas in London is always a special treat. As evening falls, the capital is magically transformed into a winter wonderland. Shoppers crowd up the old streets under a canopy of holiday lights while carolers take to the squares and market corners, filling the air with songs of happy golden days of yore ….

When it comes to the Christmas decorations in town, Londoners and visitors alike are always amazed by the efforts put in each year. There is no better city in the world that puts on such a display to celebrate the holiday season!

Fortnum and Mason

Each year looks to improve on the last, with the likes of Harrods and Harvey Nichols pushing the envelope with their wonderful, whacky, sparkly christmas displays. Who will be crowned this year’s Christmas display champion?

To get you into the Christmas Spirit we have collected a variety of the fabulous Christmas displays from years past. Its just a tiny taste of what you can expect to see on our London Christmas Tours with London Magical Tours.

From Harrods in Knightsbridge, to Fortnum and Mason in Piccadilly, from the toys in Hamleys and the displays of Selfridges filling up Oxford Street – theres really nothing quite like spending the festive season in London.
