Oxford Street and Regent Street at Xmas 2018
Beautiful lights in Oxford Street
Every-time I visit Oxford Street at Christmas time I always feel like this city can’t make it better. However, I am always wrong and this city really does know a good Christmas. You all know by now how much I adore London, how excited I get by living here and take full opportunity of everything this city has to offer. The photo below shows an incredible Christmas sign and stunning lights in the background.
Me and my close friend Arlina strolled the streets of Oxford Street, Regent Street and of course we managed too fit in some well needed retail therapy. You can’t beat stunning backdrops, true friendships and Christmas lights!
Oxford Street light decorations
Oxford Street is transformed by sparkly, glowing lights. This year, the shopping hub is home to 1,778 decorations (and 750,000 LED light-bulbs) inspired by falling snowflakes, plus the addition of new purple baubles. I just love purple and this looks super cute.
Lights Switch on
It’s the fifty-ninth year the road has been decorated for the festive period and the switch on (November 6) attracted over one million Christmas-lovers and the odd famous face. This year the launch was re-invented, treating Londoners to pop up performances from UK artists in selected stores down the street.
Regent Street lights
Regent Street is best known for its awe-inspiring ‘The Spirit of Christmas’ lights. These stunning suspended spirits were inspired by Regent Street’s very first Christmas lights, which were the first ever central London Christmas lights in 1954.
I adore this street so so much and I have walked up and down this numerous times! The Christmas lights where switched on on the 15 November this year. West-End musical showstopper Dreamgirls performed some of the show’s feel good hits (you all know how much I adore musical theatre and the West End). The switch on was spectacular on London’s most iconic shopping street.
The grand shopping sweep has its usual festive makeover with garlands of lights down the length of the road. Once again, the display is a throwback to Regent Street’s first set of Christmas lights, which went up in 1954. The spirit-like shapes have come to life and this makes London look incredible!
