If the shorter winter days are getting you down, lighten your mood by checking out some of the fifty dazzling artworks being installed across London during the second Lumiere London festival turning the city into a nocturnal art exhibition.

Lumiere London- the UK’s largest free light festival specially, commissioned by the London Mayor Sadiq Khan – takes place between 18th-21st January 2018 across London, brightening up the dark evenings between the hours of 5.30pm and 10.30pm. If you visit the Lumiere London website, you can even plan your viewing itinerary from one day to four days or a route that is particularly suited to families, taking in the stunning artworks along your route.

Helpfully, there is also information signposting you to other famous and not so famous London attractions in the vicinity along with shopping and restaurant recommendations. All you need to do is decide on chosen area whether it be King’s Cross, Fitzrovia, London’s West End, Mayfair, Westminster & Victoria or South Bank and Waterloo. When you see an installation that you particularly like, take a photo and share it social media using #lumiereldn to be in with a chance of having your own artwork featured on the site.
