'The Spirit of Christmas' 2023



Jan05 2024

Regent Street and St James’s Christmas lights return

We know many of you love our Christmas lights, with the moment that the Spirits light up central London truly marking the start of the festive season. This year, ‘The Spirit of Christmas’ scheme returns to our skies, with wondrous new additions.

For the first time ever, new lights will sparkle across our network of streets in Regent Street and St James’s. Take a wander down Glasshouse Street, Swallow Street and glittering Quadrant Arcade to enjoy our new installations. Don't miss St James’s Market for more stunning designs and the chance to snap a picture with our only earth-bound Spirit.

'The Spirit of Christmas' will be lit from 9 November 2023, with the displays switched on from early evening on a timer everyday for a more sustainable display. Enjoy our glistening displays until 5 January and until 2 January on Jermyn Street.

Look out for plenty of festive ideas on our website for the best things to do, see and eat to get into the spirit this Christmas in London. Ensure you don't miss a thing by subscribing to our newsletter and following our social channels @RegentStreetW1 and @StJamesLondon.
