The glorious and amazing golden angels over Regent Street are back this year – adding that glittering sparkle to our festive shopping. “The Spirit of Christmas” by Regent Street this year is better, bigger and dramatic representing “spirits” sweeping through the length of the street. Looking up at the sweeping canopy of twinkling lights in varying shades of white creating a coordinated ripple effect is simply quite magical – making Regent Street sparkle and dazzle bright in the moonlight. This is one experience you should not miss if you are in London at Christmas.
4 | Christmas in London – Christmas at Kew Gardens
Christmas at Kew is a perfect festive winter event of magical light trail across its gardens. Their sparkling after dark trail holds new surprises this year for visitors young and old. The new route will guide visitors along a mile long of illuminations. The highlight of this year is “a waterfall of lights” cascading from their 18 metre high Treetop Walkway with “spiralling columns of light cascading from the canopy above” – I can only imagine it to be a truly mesmerising experience as I have not seen it yet.
