Tonight London’s Biggest Landmarks Switch OFF Lights For Earth Hour!

It’s the WWF Annual Earth Hour, in which some parts of the world come together in joint force to show support of our planet, in an attempt to save some energy and look after its limited resources. London’s biggest landmarks, including Piccadilly Circus, the usually fairytale-like Harrods, Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament, the OXO Tower and more along the South Bank will take part. Our well-lit capital is certainly going to look different…

London restaurants are also getting in on the energy-saving action. The Savoy, the OXO Tower and Brasserie Blanc are all running atmospheric dinners by candlelight for the occasion. We expect the unique views across a the dark and wonderfully eery bank of the Thames to be breathtaking. If you do attend book a table for The OXO Tower tonight, you may also be joined by a surprise group of WWF pandas…

 If you fancy doing something more active during Earth Hour, then IBikeLondon will be spreading the message by hosting a fancy dress Earth Hour Wear it Wild Night Ride. Join their fleet of music-blaring DiscoBikes, as you peddle around London in fancy dress. The route around the capital will kick off in the late afternoon, before ending at Gabriels Warf, Southbank to see the Oxo Tower amongst other buildings switch off when the clock strikes 8.30pm.

If you want to show your support, WWF have set up an interactive map, on which you can add your name and become part of the Earth Hour movement!
