London is positively sparkling thanks to its festive facelift in the build-up to Christmas, as the city gets decked out with enough LEDs to give even Las Vegas a run for its money. Whether you’re making an excursion to one of capital’s many Christmas markets and fairs, planning to slip and slide like Torville and Dean at one of London's many ice rinks, or even doing a spot of shopping at one of London’s best Christmas shops, make sure you take a detour to one of the truly spectacular illuminations lighting up our city. Don’t expect the usual big switch-on events this socially distanced season, but do expect light trails and illuminations in the sky to help get into the spirit of London’s weirdest Christmas yet. Even if it’s different this year, it’s still sure to be lit. And we all deserve a bit of sparkle in our lives after the year we’ve had!
We’ll be updating this page with info on London’s Christmas lights 2020 as soon as details are announced.
