London Lights Up // Lumiere London

A fabulous free light festival has taken over the city of London at 30 locations including King’s Cross, Mayfair and Piccadilly, Regent Street & St. James’s. The company behind the lights, Artichoke, has been displaying lights in Durham since 2009 – transforming the way cities are viewed!

Despite the freezing temperatures, Lee and I headed out last night to view a few of the lights. A really good chance for me to get my camera out, as it’s been hibernating for a few months…

If you’re in London there’s still a chance to view them until 10.30pm tonight and tomorrow evening too – more information is on their site. I’m tempted to head out again tomorrow and check out the ones at King’s Cross!
