Some of the best Christmas displays in London
2020 has been pretty dull. Agreed. So we’ve sent our team on a trail across the capital in search of some of the brightest lights and Christmas displays in London. Here’s what we found. This makes a fantastic early-evening Christmas activity for families needing a spot of fresh air and a welcome change of scenery too.
Not only the beautiful peacock-inspired lighting but a 5m tall Christmas tree will greet you at Bond Street. The towering tree offers shoppers a unique, virtual experience upon scanning a QR code, transporting visitors to a magical, fairy filled land. Offering a very special festive gift, shoppers can enjoy some seasonal sparkle, snow and fairy dust in the mesmerising, never-seen-before filter.
First stop is the Tate Britain which is a delight on a normal day, but this year it’s a must. It can’t really be missed as it sure does stand out. We spotted it all the way across the river from Vauxhall.
As expected, Harrods and Harvey Nichols are shimmering like never before. Knightsbridge is very much a crowd pleaser. The kids will soak the magic of the lights during which grown ups may well drool over the luxury boutiques and the out-of-this-world car dealership windows. [Photo credit: Harvey Nichols]
Inspiring store fronts from our favourites in fashion, food and interiors over at Walton St. Of course, Blue Almonds have aced it with their beautifully illustrated window display. Additionally, it’s an absolute joy to see small businesses finally up and running again after lockdown!
High Street Kensington
From the storefront at The Ivy Brasserie to the terrific arch that welcomes you back into an absolute children’s wear classic, Trotters. The entire street is completely lined with lights. Sure to lift your spirits. [Photo credit: Trotters]
Always quirky and of course home to Liberty. But the main event has got to be Carnaby St lights, they’ve partnered with charity Choose Love in support of refugees. Spreading hope, love and positivity. Meaningful and much needed.
This year Fortnum & Mason have turned their front windows into an advent calendar. Following a peruse do take a stroll through Burlington Arcade and onto New Bond St where you can see the likes of Cartier et al really pull out all the stops! [Photo credit: Fortnum & Mason]
A tribute to our key workers. This one truly speaks for itself. Do also head town towards Selfridges, word has it they’ll be running Christmas on the Mews, a market where you can grab everything from refreshments, gifts and even your Christmas tree! Find out more here. [Photo credit: Oxford St W1]
