The best of the Christmas lights: London 2019 edition
London is officially lit. With the city's streets twinkling once more, we round up the loveliest Christmas light displays to catch this year.
Seven Dials put its Christmas lights switch-on in the hands of the viewers this year. Those who came along on 14 November were invited to make a donation through a card-tap point and see one of the 650 giant stars from the ‘Starry Night’ glow in acknowledgement. The installation, in aid of housing and homelessness charity Shelter, hopes to raise awareness of the fact that sleeping under the stars is still a harsh reality for thousands of people in the UK. It also happens to be one of the loveliest displays this year, with its stars lending a warm glow to the streets below.
