Lumiere London

Over these few days London has had the  festival of light going on to brighten up those dark January evenings. Lumiere Festival is running during 14th-17th January 2016, 6.30-10.30pm. It is a free “exhibition” of light installations in public places. There are 30 artworks on display across the town center with main display areas around King´s Cross and West End – Mayfair, Piccadilly, Regent Street and Oxford Circus, Leicester Square and Trafalgar Square.
Lumiere festival was created by Artichoke in Durham town in 2009, and has been recommissioned by Durham County Council every two years since then. This is the first time the light festival comes to London.

I´d like to point out some of the most spectacular installations at King´s Cross:

My personal opinion, after visiting the festival, is that it looks much better on the professionally taken pictures than in the real life. But if you don´t mind the crowds and the fact that this is the coldest weekend of this Winter in London so far, it´s worth checking it out.
