For any true Londoner out there, the Winter Lights Festival is a big event. We have Lightopia at Kew, the family friendly festival at Battersea Power Station and a stylish festival in Canary Wharf.
Returning after a two-year break, the festival has 22 installations, including nine works that are new to the UK.
The star of the show is a 10 metre 'floating earth' suspended above Canary Wharf's Middle Dock. Created by Luke Jerram, the installation is one of the many that reflect on the festival's themes of togetherness, climate-change and the transfer of data in the modern world.
Other installations include Camille Walala's 'Captivated by Colour' - a colourful tunnel which plays visual tricks as you move through it.
There's also a mirrored spinning top which casts out reflections of its surrounds, called 'Fragmented Appearances', by Gertjan Adema.
They also have 'Intonaluci' (The Light Snails), created by Calidos, which will trigger a hypnotic spiral of colours and patterns, activated by spinning the handle attached to installation.
Also, look out for the family of resurrected life-sized mammoths.
The festival's light trail is free and for all-ages.
