Join us throughout the festive season when the capital’s most famous shopping areas are festooned with an array of twinkling Christmas lights, while at the same time enjoy London by night! There is nothing like the sparkle of London’s famous Christmas decorations to give our city an instant makeover!
London attracts millions of people each year during the Christmas period to view the lights and browse its flagship department stores – and you can enjoy a Panoramic Tour in the comfort of an iconic London Black Cab with an accredited Private Driver Guide. Among the highlights will of course be Regent Street, Oxford Street and Covent Garden – but your Guide will also show you some spectacular decorations in other locations where you can soak up the seasonal atmosphere such as Bond Street, Carnaby Street and Marylebone High Street among many others.
The spectacular Regent Street light show has been a tradition since 1948 when Christmas trees decorated this wide Regency thoroughfare, because lighting was not permitted again until the following year with the lifting of wartime restrictions. In Oxford Street you will see amazing snowballs and golden baubles light up the road which has been decorated for Christmas shoppers since 1959 – in previous years a diverse range of celebrities have switched on the lights, including Bob Geldof, Richard Branson, the Spice Girls, Jim Carey and Robbie Williams.
We shall also visit Trafalgar Square, where each year since 1947 a Christmas tree felled by Norwegian foresters provides a central focus for carol-singing in the evenings. You will also enjoy Piccadilly Circus (one of the most famous road intersections in the world) all lit up because it is at nightfall when you can really appreciate that iconic illuminated advertising, plus your Guide will show you the first building in the world to be lit entirely by electricity. In the comfort of your cab you will enjoy London in its majestically-lit splendour, and will get to see all of our historic landmarks in a truly dazzling experience.
Night time is also the best way to enjoy the vista from the River Thames for the chance to take some amazing photographs while London riverside landmarks are at their glittering best! The River Thames by night is a magical experience – especially now that London’s latest public artwork is ‘Illuminated River’. Christmas lights have been a feature of London for over half a century, their colours and designs add a truly wonderful fairy-tale fantasy – and our Tour will definitely get your party into the Christmas spirit! These Tours run between 21st November and 5th January, and are a special way of appreciating the ‘Christmas Lights and London at Night’ experience – this Tour would also make an ideal Christmas gift!
