At the Magical Lantern Festival

Always on the lookout for interesting events and places which involve as little commuting effort on my behalf as possible, I decide to go and check out the Magical Lantern Festival hosted at Chiswick House, just down the road from where I live.

It was nice to avoid the hassle of the tube and an evening away from the crowding and buzzing of central London for a change. If you’ve not been to Chiswick House, it’s actually a lovely spot worth checking out during the day as well.

The Lantern Festival celebrates the Chinese New Year, transforming the usually sober park into a sparkling display of colourfully lit sculptures. A nice little evening walk (probably about half an hour to go through the entire display) on a larger than expected scale. I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
