London Christmas Lights 2021
Christmas is just around the corner and the city has lit up with the famous Christmas lights all around. London has kicked off its Christmas festivities with the world’s largest light switch-on this time.
The capital’s best-known hotspots including Mayfair, Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square have been decked out with more than one million LED lights (energy efficient lights) in the lead-up to Christmas festivities.
Shoppers are delighted to see the lights from Oxford Street and Regent Street since last Friday. A total of 20 streets across the city’s West End all had their lights switched on at the same time by the Lord Mayor of Westminster to mark the beginning of the 2021 festive season.
Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, said: “London is the greatest city in the world and I’m thrilled that this year the West End is hosting the largest Christmas lights switch-on ever seen.
“From our world-class shops, attractions, arts, and culture to our incredible bars and restaurants — all of which will be sparkling under more than a million lights — there is so much to see and do this festive season.
“With just six weeks to go until Christmas, I’m urging Londoners and visitors to enjoy the best our capital has to offer, see the amazing lights and support our hospitality to continue to bounce back.”
“Having lost out on Christmas last year, 2021 has to be about getting the chance to really cherish that joy that you get in the lead-up to Christmas and where better to do this than the West End?” Don’t miss out on this beautiful festive season, visit London with us.
