In 2012 I claimed that Saint Christopher’s Place was one of London’s prettiest streets at Christmas. I went back this year to see if that was still true.
St Christopher’s Place is a narrow lane leading off Oxford Street, lined with small shops, and opening out into a public square with restaurants.
You could easily miss the narrow entrance to the street, so take the advice on their website telling you to look for the clock, as shown in this square image….
…..and then walk through the narrow entrance as shown in this long thin image.
Because the street is so narrow, with no cars allowed, it’s ideal for suspending decorations between the buildings.
Maybe “pretty” isn’t the right word for the decorations this year. The official description from St Christopher’s Place on social media was “retro”. What do you think of them?
P.S. Voting is still open, but right now we are heading for a landslide win for Brussels sprouts in yesterday’s poll.
