London has some really nice illuminations this year, so I thought I would do a little post about what I had seen this year in London :) .


As this year is the 50th anniversary for the Rolling Stones, I noticed these cool decorations?, above along Carnaby Street.

Covent Garden

In Covent Garden they had a giant reindeer with a scarf around it’s neck by Lyle & Scott, a Christmas Tree and these giant baubles along the indoor market bit.

Liberty & Carnaby Street

Liberty in London looked really nice with the subtle lights along the front of the Tudor style building.

The lights make London look prettier, but I preferred the lights and decorations on Regent Street and decorations in Covent Garden.
