London certainly doesn’t disappoint when it comes to decorative Christmas window displays. When you’re wrapped up in your Christmas shopping, sometimes you don’t have the time to stop and properly appreciate their beauty. So in case you missed them, here’s a roundup of some of the best.
The Harrods Christmas window display embodies the very theme of the shopping hotspot…luxury. The world-famous department store even asked designer duo Dolce and Gabbana to help dress the store for Christmas and the innovative pair created 14 themes for the windows.
Selfridges never disappoint when it comes to their festive displays, as they refuse to scrimp on the smaller details. Even the fake grass and lights on the walls of the building that surround the windows add an extra festive touch to the shop front. This year their message is ‘love’ and it certainly comes across with their red festive characters.
With festive lights covering the building from roof to pavement, you certainly won’t miss John Lewis on Oxford Street during the festive period.

Opting for a vibrant neon theme, the 1980s-style window display certainly grabs the attention of passers-by. The luxury shopping hotspot says the theme behind this year’s display was to help spread a positive message and brighten the day of shoppers with its vivid colour palette and eye-catching features.
