The city of London will be transformed into a magnificent light festival by the world’s most talented artists. This event takes place in West End and King's Cross streets and is FREE to attend!
Visitors can admire London’s urban landscape and architecture in 30 artworks across four main areas: King’s Cross; Mayfair and Grosvenor Square; Piccadilly, Regent Street, Leicester Square and St James’s; and Trafalgar Square and Westminster.
Lumiere London will transform parts of London’s West End and King's Cross into a sparkling world of light. The event is ideal for locals and visitors to London during the quieter periods after the festive season. Festival visitors are being encouraged to explore the dazzling night-time gallery on foot, discovering parts of the capital for the first time and seeing familiar sights in a new light.
It is good to know that the walking routes are easy for visitors. Plenty of opportunities to stay and chill-out in one of the many restaurants and bars along the walking route will make it a wonderful evening.
