Mark your calendars intrepid London travelers, Oxford Street will be turning on it’s Christmas Lights on Tuesday, November 6th. This yearly London tradition is one thing we always look forward to and if you’re in London after the 6th, it’s a treat to see London’s shopping streets illuminated.

The lights aren’t ‘new’ this year as the planned illuminations are delayed due to the delays in Crossrail (they were related somehow). So, we’ll have to content ourselves with the round lit baubles for another year.

From Oxford Street:

We can officially reveal that our Christmas Lights will be turned on, this Tuesday 6th November 2018. Calling you to kick off Christmas in London with a festive-filled evening of one night only experiences! All will be merry and bright on Oxford Street, as we switch up the traditional Christmas Lights switch on to host our BIGGEST shopping night, surprise moments, and an exciting line up of exclusive in store pop-up gigs in your favourite brands. If you’ve celebrated Christmas with us before you know that our Christmas Lights it’s one event you don’t want to miss. So mark the date in your diary and round up your friends for an evening you’ll never forget.

Oxford Street are usually the first to turn on their lights then Regent St follows a few days later.
