London's Christmas lights: When and where to watch the switch-on

It’s almost Christmas. Well, not really but it’s almost the switching on of every Christmas light in London.

Of course, they’re not all turned on on the same day, giving you the opportunity to attend more than one.

As well as the official switch-on, there’ll be a whole host of events from shopping discounts to pop-up bars and fairs for the little ones.

Oxford Street is set to be the busiest with an estimated one million people in attendance. If you’re after a quieter affair, why not try the likes of Carnaby Street or St Martin’s Courtyard in Covent Garden?

Here are all the Christmas lights events you need to know about in London this year.
