London is widely known for having some of the most amazing attractions in the UK; it’s no surprise with it being the capital city. Have you ever thought about what is often the main thing behind these London attractions? Behind so many of the amazing sights London is known for is a reliance on electricity. Below, we’ve shared a few of the top London attractions that need electricity.

Christmas Light Displays

If there’s one thing London do well, it’s their Christmas light displays! From November, we start to see the streets of London light up with beautiful displays which change year on year. Some of the most popular light displays are Oxford Street, Carnaby Street, Covent Garden and Regent Street. It goes without saying that all of these stunning lights rely on electricity.

Lumiere London

Lumiere London is a light festival that happens every year with different light attractions across the city. One of our favourites this year was Lampounette at Kings Cross; this played on the corporate environment that the area is known for with huge iconic office desk lamps. These light attractions all require electricity.

London Eye

The London Eye is one of the biggest tourist attractions in the UK. Whenever people visit the capital city, this is usually one of the first things to see on the list. Not many people think about the electricity that is used for the London Eye. If there was an issue, it’d definitely require an emergency electrician!

If any electrical issues occurred with these London attractions, an emergency electrician would be needed as soon as possible.

I did most of the work myself but required someone to come in and put in all of the electrics, so I called First Strike.
