There'll be spectacular light shows and installations throughout the British capital for Lumiere London.

From King's Cross to the West End and Waterloo, installations will be scattered across London for what's billed as the UK's largest free light festival, from January 18-21.

More than 16 artists will transform landmarks, streets and locations across King's Cross, Fitzrovia, the West End, Westminster, Victoria, South Bank and Waterloo, with some of the top installations to be found in Mayfair. 

For example, Impulse will see eight illuminated interactive seesaws light up the more they move, while Northern Lights by Aleksandra Stratimirovic is inspired by the aurora borealis, allowing visitors to experience some of the wonder and magic of the northern lights.
