Duke of York Square Christmas LightsDuke of York Square, a lovely pedestrianised area just off Sloane Square, gets in the festive spirit with a day of free activities to mark the first time its Christmas Lights are lit up on Saturday the 9th November. The free event begins at 3pm with family-friendly activities in the arts and crafts marquee, real-life camels and a chance to meet Santa in his Christmas Grotto (from 6pm). Mr. Claus will be meeting little ones, telling stories, and giving away Christmas sweets from his grotto which will be open on weekends from 9th November and every day from 1st December until 24th December. A troop of real-life camels leads the switch-on procession from the top of the King's Road down to the square and one lucky child will get to turn on the Christmas lights.

 

About Duke of York Square

The pedestrianised Duke of York Square, just of the fashionable King's Road at the Sloane Square end, is an oasis of traffic-free calm. Modern glass fronted shops house chic boutiques, hair salons and coffee shops. You can combine shopping at Zara, Joseph, Banana Republic, Massimo Dutti and Liz Earle with a coffee at Patisserie Valerie or something more substantial at Manicomio, the Italian restaurant next door.
