The best Christmas lights in London
Carnaby's Christmas decorations – usually among the most distinctive in town – have a ‘Queen’ theme this year to mark the release of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. Freddie Mercury’s lyrics are shining brightly in giant colourful neon over the street. ‘Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?’ Well, you might have to pinch yourself in front of this dazzling display.
Christmas at Kew brings illuminations to light up the buildings and plants. Feast your eyes on over a million sparkling pea-lights, thousands of laser beams and tree canopies flooded with festive colour. New for this year is a moonlit Laser Garden hidden in the woods and a festive flotilla of hundreds of glowing boats bobbing on the lake.
For its thirteenth year, Syon Park’s Enchanted Woodland has transformed the 600-year-old gardens with a light display, completely illuminating the Great Conservatory in the centre of the historic arboretum. The glittering walk can be completed in half an hour by those with a brisk pace, but it’s better to allow longer for photo-taking, admiring the installations and playing with the interactive lights along the way.
