Shepherd Market Christmas Lights

This charming corner of Mayfair invites us all to its annual Christmas lights, with boutiques, pubs, restaurants and cafés in the area all open late especially when the lights come on for the first time. The lights will be switched on by Liz Hurley at 7pm this year and there'll be live music, carol singers, traditional treats and mulled wine. Younger visitors can burn off some energy on the treasure hunt or go and confess their Christmas wish in Santa's Grotto.
