Christmas lights in London

I love Christmas and I love London, therefore I was super excited to get into the festive spirit and go and see the Christmas lights.

We got the train into Baker Street and then walked down Marylebone HighStreet looking in awe at all the posh shops and restaurants (wishing we could afford to visit!!). The lights here were simple, and cute. However we did get to visit the Conran Shop, which is one of my favourites stores on this high street simply because it sells such random things! We went straight upstairs to the Christmas Market which was a selection of cute huts with Christmassy bits and bobs inside and also real Christmas trees. The highlight was the snowman sitting at the Christmas dinner table!

Marylebone High Street ends up at the top of St Christophers Place, which is the cutest little street with lots of unique restaurants and shops, ending with a nice square with restaurants such as Carluccio's on it and Apostrophe.

After going down a narrow alleyway you end up on busy Oxford Street. Its hard to get a good picture as its so busy, but we headed towards Selfridges where we went to the Christmas Emporium on the top floor which was amazing!

Next we wandered down to New Bond Street and saw their lights which was super cute and like feathers, then ending up on Regents Street. The lights this year are sponsored by the new Night At The Museum film.

Just of Regents Street is Carnaby Street which had some cool headphone lights this year. Just off Carnaby Street is a little square called Kingly Court which has some unique, boutique stores and restaurants.

We then walked back to Baker Street stopping off at Langham Place church and the BBC Headquarters. These have been recently renovated and looked amazing. I would love to go for a tour of the BBC one day.

How amazing is London at Christmas. Next I need to visit South Bank and all the lights along the Thames! xoxo
