Christmas In London 2009

It never ceases to amaze me how imaginative the retailers are when it comes to promoting their goods and shops at Christmas time.
This year despite the recession London two major Streets Oxford Street and Regent Street have encouraged some amazing window displays.

And their Street Lights whilst somewhat more modest than previous years have added to the overall feeling that Christmas is not far away.

Have a look at some of our images

We must remember that primarily it’s the Children that get the most pleasure, their excitement and their enthusiasm is of course something we never forget and It’s these Christmassy scenes in the toy shop windows which really capture their imagination and wildest dreams.

The most famous shop for this is Hamley’s

This years theme at Hamley’s was “Bears “ and here they are singing carols playing games

Around the corner from Hamley’s is Carnaby Street. This of course had its roots in the early sixties and this years Christmas lights has a distinctly Psychodellic theme to them
Reconnecting with those early years of “make love not war and Peace and Joy to all at this time of year”

I thought Liberty’s Christmas windows last year based on a travelling circus would take some beating but folks they have done it again.

This Christmas the famous store will have a guest window dresser , in the shape of renowned British fashion designer Luella Bartley. Luella has teamed up with Liberty to create a totally unique festive experience.

Have a look at these fantastic windows and the detail in some particular for example the royal’s grotto is just amazing

And last but not least Selfridges who in celebration 100 years of trading have excelled themselves this year with a little help from their friends and partners.

The theme was Pantomime Characters or scenes and I am showing as many as we can. Some our of course difficult to recapture by an amateur photographer.

But the point is VISIT LONDON and see for yourself , click here to book hotel they are well worth the outing during the day or night.

Our Prize this year goes to the Vivienne Westward window at Selfridges shown here ( two views as it’s on a corner) sadly the photography doesn’t quite do it justice
but why not go and look click here to book hotel
