A look at this year’s Winter Lights Festival in Canary Wharf.

Brightening up these dull and dark winter nights this month is the return of the Winter Lights festival. From 15 – 26 January 2019, over 21 light installations and interactive neon art have been dotted around the Canary Wharf estate.

This year marks the return of Winter Lights after last January it had some competition from Lumiere London. I paid a visit tonight and it was definitely significantly busier than when I visited two years ago [I blame Instagram ;-)]. Admittedly, Canary Wharf can be a bit of a maze to those who don’t know it, but there are plenty of signs and assistants giving out maps if you pay a visit.

Here’s a gallery of some of the installations at the Winter Lights 2019.
