Christmas lights in London
The King's Road gets into the festive spirit with a whole sackload of Christmassy fun. The Christmas lights will be switched on at 4pm on November 7, with extra festivities and a beautiful tree adding to the joy. Father Christmas and his elves will arrive, and a free gift wrapping service will help you get a headstart for the big day.
