Winter Lights at Canary Wharf

4:00pm – 10:00pm
Free

London deals with the long, gloomy nights in January by lighting up the sky. As usual, the commercial towers of Canary Wharf are getting some of the season’s most impressive illuminations—the Canary Wharf Winter Lights. Looking for more bright lights this winter? Be sure to check our top picks for the city’s best.

What to see and do

As well as lights to be admired from a far, this year promises several hands-on interactive exhibits. So don’t be afraid to get up close and personal! If you’ve been before, you can expect to see some returning favourites. These include the kaleidoscopic Seed of Light, Luma Paint Light Graffiti and Time & Time.

This year’s debut highlights include the huge Squiggle in Jubiliee Park, as well as the thought-provoking interactive piece, Affinity. All in all, there are 26 seperate exhibitions to check out. So be sure to set aside a good chunk of your evening to take them all in!

Tickets


No tickets are required, and the event is totally free. Just rock up and make the most of this year’s extended opening hours.

Food and Drink

Accompanying the festival this year is a fleet of food trucks stationed in Montgomery Square, Crossrail Place and Cabot Square Park. They’ll be serving delicious food both sweet and savoury from around the world. For savoury fare, Cabot Square has the most enticing offering, with Greek souvlaki, Vietnamese duck buns and Cajun sandwiches to name just a few. If you’ve a sweet tooth, consider heading to Montgomery Square for Crepes or Crossrail Place for Belgian waffles.
