Even the most Christmas-averse individual cracks a blissed-out smile at the sight of a magical festive light display. And London is never in short supply of some thoroughly excellent ones. A trip to one of these truly spectacular illuminations lighting up our city while listening to classic Christmas songs will fill anyone’s heart with a surfeit of cheer. From the centre of town, out to some of London’s lesser-known displays, we’ll be adding them all to this handy list as soon as they’re announced.

The award-winning light festival will run in Crystal Palace Park from November 19 to January 2. It’ll feature lanterns that were handmade and hand-painted using ancient Chinese methods that date back to the Tang dynasty, multi-sensory interactive lights and installations that tell a story of wonder and rebirth and a never-before-seen illuminated trail. Book your tickets soon, because they won’t stick around.
