As you probably know, I'm a bit of a fan of Christmas, especially when it comes to lights. I've always been obsessed with lights so in December when the whole city gets covered in them, I get a little excited and take a lot of photos.
Kensington Palace Gardens
Perhaps London's biggest and best Christmas tree in the grounds of Kensington Palace Gardens.
The switch on of the lights in Carnaby street, this year they've gone for a disco theme.
Southbank is always one of the most festive location around Christmas in London.
In past years they've had a huge Christmas market, last year it included a Christmas train ride along the river... this year, it's not so good, just a few stalls.
It was nice to see the return of the Rekoderlig Cider Lodge this year. A little bar tucked behind Southbank where you can enjoy warm winter cider around a burning fire.
This area of Southbank usually has more Christmas market stalls, this year... just lights.
The view along Southbank looking toward St. Paul's Cathedral.
Behind the OXO Tower is a courtyard which is always well decorated for Christmas.
More of the OXO Tower's Christmas lights.
One last shot behind the OXO Tower.
Further along Southbank, the Tate Modern Christmas market this year beats the original Southbank one.
The huge Christmas tree outside Covent Garden Market is one of the nicest in the city.
Shiny glitter balls and giant mistletoe makes the market look pretty magical.

Winter Wonderland, Hyde Park
The second happiest place on Earth. Winter Wonderland is a huge festive world full of rides, bars and Christmas markets.
The event takes place every November and December in Hyde Park.
The Bavarian Village where you'll find food, drink and live music is one of the largest areas of Winter Wonderland.
The Bavarian Village. But it all looks much more magical at night...
One of the nicest ice rinks in London in the winter is in Winter Wonderland, but it's always really busy.
The lights and colours at Winter Wonderland are pretty spectacular.
Back to the Bavarian Village.
The giant Bavarian man is a new addition this year.
He talks and sings with his robin.
Salmon being cooked fresh on an open fire in the Bavarian Village.
The Bavarian village is only a small part of Winter Wonderland and even that seems huge.
There's a huge indoor space in the village with food stalls and live entertainment.
Angels Christmas Market in Winter Wonderland is a great place to find some unusual, but overpriced gifts.
If you want to buy London-themed tree decorations or a Winter Wonderland bauble to remember your visit the Angels Christmas market is the place.
The West End
Leicester Square's Christmas fun fair.
The Trafalgar Square Christmas tree has been an annual gift to the people of Britain by the city of Oslo each year since 1947 as a token of gratitude for British support of Norway during the Second World War.
