Oxford Street Christmas Lights 2024

Free

It’s definitely chilly, so we’re allowed to talk about Christmas now – and nothing says festive like the Christmas lights being switched on along Oxford Street. Whether you’re in the crowd getting involved with the countdown on day one, or just strolling underneath them doing some Christmas shopping over the coming weeks, they’ll add a little sparkle to your evening.

This year’s famous illuminations again feature over 5,000 sustainable stars with 300,000 energy efficient LED lights to create the beautiful “sky of stars”. Made from recyled polymers and an average saving of 75% compared with standard bulbs, this Christmas lighting display is 100% recyclable, and will be used in future Christmas lighting schemes on Oxford Street. In the current energy crisis, the hours will also be reduced this year to cut energy consumption.

For a guide to central London’s best Christmas lights, check out our walking tour – follow our planned route for all the festive feels!
