The Regent Street Christmas lights have been getting a little bit too commercial in recent years, with adverts always dominating the decorations, but happily they seem to be harking back to yesteryear in 2016. It's all angel wings and bright stars and strings of white lights -- it looks very pretty.

It's also a far larger display this year, running down Regent Street and across Piccadilly into St James's, finally finishing at Waterloo Place.

The big switch-on ceremony will take place from 6 PM on the 17th November, when they'll shut the street to traffic. There will be the usual VIP appearances and music and entertainment, but there's no news yet as to who it might be (we will keep you posted).

You might like to read Craig's previous reviews of the Christmas lights in London, to get you in the mood. He's also written about the Christmas shops and markets and Christmas ice rinks.
