Lumiere London 2016

A couple of weekends ago London, from Kings Cross to Oxford Street in particular, was even busier than normal. Everyone, it seemed, had left their flats and hopped on the tube to take in Lumiere London.

Lumiere London aimed to make the grey January days that little bit brighter and it sure did with some spectacular light displays.

The event took place over four nights and was absolutely free – always a bonus in a city as expensive as London!

There were around 30 light installations specially set up for the Lumiere London festival. These installations were in some of the most well known (and usually most busy) areas of London including; Mayfair, King’s Cross, Picadilly, Regent Street and Trafalgar Square.

We started in King’s Cross and walked down towards Regent Street capturing some of the main light installations.

From a 3D circus projection, to dancing stick men and divers near King’s Cross pool. there was plenty to see and London Lumiere was just as popular with kids as with adults.

Check it out on video above and make sure you give Lumiere London a visit next year!
