London's Christmas lights are no more, but the city won't be dark and gloomy for long thanks to Lumiere London – a city-wide light festival that will be brightening our streets from today until January 17. Over 30 light installations will be popping up all over central London, with lightworks in Leicester Square, Regent Street, Trafalgar Square and King's Cross, which will light up from 6.30pm to 10.30pm during the festival. (See the map of the installations here.) Lumiere first appeared in Durham in 2009, but this is the first time the festival has ventured to London. Naturally, Londoners have already been Instagramming the hell out of the city's shiny new neon installations – take a look at these lovely snaps:
