That’s pretty much summed up our feelings about all the light trails and festive displays popping up in London right now, to be quite honest. And, funnily enough, the latest of the long list of areas being lit up in Christmas lights is Connaught Village, which this year is inspired by the beloved Love Actually.
Yes, you read that right. Although we can’t promise appearances from Hugh Grant, Keira Knightly and the gang, the central London street has received a fanciful glow up inspired by the Christmas favourite.
Passers-by will be greeted with a neon installation, boasting the Tree of Love, Joy and Hope, which resides at the junction of Connaught Street and Kendal Street, kitted out in festive, yuletide splendour. Splashed out across are iconic quotes from the film in dashing neon.
We know you’re thrashing them out in your head, and yes, you’ll see everything from “To me, you are perfect”; to “first lobster”; to “All I want for Christmas is you” to “I feel it in my fingers”.
In London, Love, Actually, is all around. And to me, Connaught Christmas village lights, you are perfect.
Find the installation at Connaught Village, St George’s Fields, W2 2AA (nearest station is Marble Arch).
