Wembley Park Christmas Lights

Wembley Park Christmas Lights

Ok so Wembley Park Christmas Lights may be over but I’m all ready for next Christmas! Days out and activities have been a little thin on the ground during the Christmas holidays. One evening we decided to head over to Wembley Park to see the Christmas light installations.

We love to visit Wembley Designer Outlet but of course all the shops are closed at the moment. It’s still a fun place to go for a walk through though. We weaved our way around the shopping centre, past the back of the Stadium and towards Wembley Park Stadium station. There are a number of different light installations to admire along the way including the tallest LED Christmas tree in London.

We turned to walk around the London Designer Outlet. Although the shops were closed we got to enjoy this giant bauble!

We walked past the SSE Arena where we have watched shows such as Paw Patrol Live and Disney on Ice. The kids love to play in the water fountains out the front and were surprised they weren’t on!

We loved these three classic telephone boxes by Arena Square, all featuring iconic Londoners from Brent including George Michael, Twiggy and Amy Johnson. This installation was called Legends Calling by Louisa Smurthwaite.

We couldn’t resist the rainbow crossing!

We walked past Mr Doodle concrete blocks in Wembley Park’s Market Square, decorated in his special grafitti spaghetti style.

We all loved Angel Wings which was outside the new Wembley Mark Market Emporium, on Market Square.

My kids always love the Spanish Steps and they’ve had a makeover as Drawn Together by Tash Randolph. Not only are the steps painted in a rainbow of colours, each step features hundreds of unique, self-illustrated faces “drawn together”. The faces are placed side-by-side and shaded to form a rainbow, reflecting the public working together to tackle the pandemic.

Star Box was a giant gift-box shaped cube, filled with glowing golden lights and shimmering sequins situated on Zig-a-zag Allee.

You can see we planned our visit so we could really watch the lights change at dusk. They were well worth a visit and we can’t wait to go again at the end of the year.

Some of the installations are staying in place as part of the Wembley Park Art Trail which is running until the 20th April. The free public art trail includes life murals, digital installations and light shadows.
