It's the first time in many years that Kensington High Street has Christmas lights. The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea organised the scheme to promote the borough's retail areas and encourage people to shop locally. The lights are funded by the High Street's retailers.
London has some of the best Christmas lights in the world. Whilst doing your Christmas shopping why not check out Bond Street, Oxford Street, Covent Garden or Marylebone High Street.
Then of course there's Harrods in Knightsbridge, probably the most famous lights on a single store.
