Event summary
Here are the distances available for Christmas Lights Walking and Running Tour
Route information
The 3k tour starts and ends next to Charing Cross station - where you can make the most of the facilities prior to the tour. 
Led by a Christmas-loving guide from Secret London Runs, you'll make your merry way in a small group through the very best of London's Christmas lights, trees and window displays. Festive tunes will be playing as you make your way from the start at Charing Cross through all the main displays in Mayfair and London’s West End - including Carnaby Street, Regent Street, Seven Dials and beyond. In keeping with their name, Secret London Runs keeps the exact route and all the festive sights along the way under wraps until the night.
You and your group will stop briefly at each of the main displays for photos and you’ll even be treated to a little festive history and information about the lights at each stop.
Allow a little over one hour for the experience. You will stop regularly and briefly so you can take in the beauty of the lights and get photos in the best festive spots.
