Regent Street Christmas LightsThe regal sweep of John Nash's famous shopping street has a great, festive atmosphere when the Christmas lights are switched on. Regent Street goes traffic-free for the official turning on of the lights and the Spirit of Christmas Theme returns, with a fleet of spectacular large-scale 'spirits' with widespread wings soaring over the street. The display, designed by leading British lighting creatives, James Glancy Design, takes inspiration from the street's original lights display back in 1954 and features over 300,000 twinkling lights, making it the biggest display in the capital.

About Regent Street

Don't be put off by the fact that Nash's sweeping design for Regent Street was inspired as a means of separating the riff-raff (Soho) from the well to do (Mayfair) back in the 1800s. Home to a number of large outlets offering everything from toys and trench coats to fabrics and food, Regent Street is a great place to window shop if nothing else. More about Regent Street
