Christmas Lights Walk
Explore London by night on this 90 minute Christmas tour, when we walk among the illuminated streets in all their glimmering splendour against the dark winter sky. "It's the most wonderful time of the year" London's Christmas Lights are recognised the world over for their artistic inventiveness across some of the city's most iconic Streets. In addition to the visual spectacle you will discover the stories behind the lights, the award-winning window displays and some of the shops which made the West End what it is today.
