Liverpool Lights At Christmas-Time
We took the opportunity whilst in town this afternoon to have a look at the festive lights, switched on now a few days ago. This was a quick visit just to the Liverpool ONE area, so much remains for a return trip (and perhaps to write about again); but what we saw was great. The displays are fresh and varied and the mood is good.
Liverpool city centre felt like a place where people will want to come to enjoy their Christmas shopping. There’s something here for everyone.
We haven’t yet got to Liverpool ONE‘s adventurous Christmas in the Park, but we still saw lots to do – the Snowglobe is happy to welcome young visitors! – and places to shelter, both beneath the central star of Paradise Place which joins the open walkways and in the terraces of L1’s enclosed smart new shopping area.
And then you can stroll along the historic city centre, at long last so well deserving to be on the Up again, taking in Whitechapel and Lord Street (above) or the Met Quarter and Church Street (below)…
Some perhaps will pause to refresh and reflect on the way.
But few young or older will until now have expected as they take a turn back along College Lane into Liverpool ONE to meet a giant reindeer vision in sparkling lights.
And perhaps only those fewer still who have fresh eyes will stand in excited wonderment at the star, gently and always glowing through the colours of the rainbow, which presides over the entire luminous array.
