Christmas lights in London

Hello guys,

I am trying to figure out what time the Christmas lights are turned on in London daily. I know it gets dark around 4 pm usually but is there a specific time that you are aware of?

Some are on all the time now but for full effect you're better waiting until it's fully dark.

There won't be a specific time as the light are funded by different street and trade associations.

I was in the Frontline for dinner tonight. And as well as the consistently good food, my wife admired their perfect Christmas lights.

Some are on all day while others will be switched on in afternoon, before it gets dark, which is from 3 ish lately.

Enjoy the lights
