Canary Wharf’s Winter Lights is on between the 17th to 27th of January (5-10pm) and it’s sure to ‘take you on a journey through 12 spectacular temporary installations.’ The installations are put together by some of the most innovative light artists across the world so it’s definitely worth exploring!
