London's Christmas Lights

Andy and I don't usually exchange gifts at Christmas.  Instead of parcels under the tree, we share a special night out.  This year it was a trip to London to see a play in the West End.  



Before the show we took a quick stroll down some of the best shopping streets in London just to see the decorations and special holiday windows.



Carnaby Street was full of these charming Robins.


Regent Street had lovely white branches surrounding roundels featuring the Twelve Days of Christmas.



Even the smaller shopping precincts were beautifully decorated...



Bloomsbury's Brunswick Centre featured decorations that changed colours resulting in a magical light show of delicate fairy lights and giant snowflakes. Christmas in London is lovely this year.

  1. So nice to visit London during the days before Christmas. The robins of Carnaby street look very special and finishing with a show on the West End must be the cream on the cake.
