Mayfair and Belgravia are attempting to lift our spirits after the year we’ve had, and I must say, they have truly outdone themselves. You can guarantee there’s something fabulously festive around every corner and several surprises along the way.
These neighbourhoods are undoubtedly stunning all year round, however these show-stopping Christmas trees and light displays are nothing short of magical. Belgravia’s Motcomb Street is a great place to start as it features a brand new eye-catching light installation. You’ll find rows of rainbow-coloured LED banners brightening up this walkway and if you’re lucky, you may even witness these beautiful lights change colour.
Make sure to keep an eye out on your journey as you’ll definitely spot some Christmassy window displays. Belgravia’s Pantechnicon, for example, is in on the festive fun and is currently decked out with sparkling lights. Before leaving the area, make sure to venture to Halkin Arcade, where a giant rainbow-coloured Christmas tree is currently taking centre stage.
Speaking of Christmas trees, head to the Connaught Hotel in Mayfair to view one of the most extravagant trees in London. This year’s tree is as festive as they come and is also incredibly large, so prepare to be amazed. And just a stone throw away, you’ll come across a series of luminous archways.
These epic triangular-shaped archways are located on South Molton Street and are accompanied by twinkling fairy lights and colour-changing Christmas trees! If that’s not enough excitement or you, Brown Hart Gardens is now home to a festive lodge that serves takeaway hot chocolate and mulled wine. What’s not to love?
These Christmas decorations are a must-see, and with lockdown set to end next week, best stick them in your diary now!
