This year, unlike previous years, I avoided the obvious areas of London when seeking out Christmas lights. Oxford and Regents Streets have had the same decorations for the last few years.
Somerset House has a magnificent tree in its inner courtyard, right next to the pop-up ice skating rink. I timed my shot perfectly, as the ice had been cleared in between skating sessions. Covent Garden is always a visual delight (and its gift topped car is an Instagram favourite). It helped that when I was there, it had been raining so the crowds were less than usual.
You can see how Oxford Street’s lights looked in 2014 here … they haven’t changed.

Thanks for the 2nd glace at the gift package car … oh those trees are magnificent in size & lights. Having that person in the photo of the Convent Garden’s tree gives a true perspective of just how big that tub is & how tall the tree. Nice to have a look back to 2014 – OM what a difference in TBC.

I know, I can hardly believe how small (and cute) he was just 4 years ago!!
You’ve found some beautiful London decorations – I can imagine that the car has been photographed many a time this year!
