Bond Street pays spectacular tribute to Queen Elizabeth II with Christmas lights

The late Queen Elizabeth II is remembered in a stunning visual tribute in Bond Street this year as the Christmas lights were officially turned on.

A brand new, spectacular scheme of over 93 thousand LED bulbs light up the London sky inspired by the resplendent magnificence of The Crown Jewels.

The designs, which have taken over a year to create, have replaced the much-loved peacock feathers, which were present for 8 years.

Concept and planning for the new Christmas lights started in early 2021 to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee and our longest serving monarch, HM Queen Elizabeth II.

The new scheme is made up of 93,652 LED’s using recyclable, long-life materials, which are more sustainable.

Katie Thomas, Associate Director, Bond Street & Mayfair says: “Bond Street is one of the most recognised shopping streets in the world, it is the global centre for luxury so our new lights scheme needed to reflect this, and how better than by taking inspiration from the resplendent Crown Jewels.

“The Christmas lights have been over a year in the making and feature four dazzling crowns, two magnificent gateways and over 216 translucent pearl globes. Visitors come from all over the world to see our lights, and catch a glimpse of the magical window displays created by the famous flagship stores that call Bond Street their home.”
