After visiting Bond Street Christmas Lights, my next stop was to see the fabulous Carnaby Street Christmas Lights which took me around 15 minutes to reach by foot. I passed by the beautiful Liberty London on my way there and saw the wonderful Nutcracker-themed shop displays.
Carnaby Street in Soho is easy to find specially with all the signage leading to it. This year, the inspiration for Carnaby’s Christmas lights comes from the V&A’s new exhibition ‘You Say You Want a Revolution? Records and Rebels 1966-1970 which features Carnaby Street at the heart of ‘swinging’ sixties London.
Carnaby Street Christmas Lights is probably the most unique decoration I’ve seen that night that I checked out a few street Christmas lights around London. Iconic images which celebrates Carnaby’s vibrant history of 60’s swing can be seen all over the place in addition to the spectacular lights glittering from above your head. It’s hip, young, funky and vibrant – that’s the probably the best description I can give it.
The Carnaby Street Christmas Lights will be turned on everyday from 4:30pm until the 6th of January 2017. The closest underground stations are Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus.
