Oxford Street will sparkle for a fifty-fifth year this Christmas as its full length will be decked with 1778 glowing white orbs. The decorations were also on display last year, but as we're already rather fond of them we don't mind that they're centre stage again.

Would be great if there was a Christmas starting gun, so that everyone knew that from that point it is officially the start of the festive season. 15th November is just about right! All the Christmas lights switch on the same day and the party starts!

With these and other London street Christmas lights they usually get turned off at about midnight which is totally pointless as the best time to view is by car or tour bus in the early hours of the morning with little traffic and no parking regulations.



I'm a Londoner and travelled all the way from Scotland to see the lights.Shaftesbury Ave lights was the best in London. Aberdeen had better ones . Winter wonderland was out of this world, Made the trip worth while.


we re gonna be visiting london for a couple of days and we would really like to attend. it sounds amazing !. Do we need to buy tickets?


Jeeeeez should have given that £1.5m to help all the homeless people in London, what a waste!


Definitely going there this weekend, looks beautiful! It will 'light up' most certainly.


will be there, looking forward for the event, it will be the best christmas ever
