Driving around to look at Christmas lights is one of those quintessential activities of the festive season, but it can be a long night if you don’t know where to look.

If you can find a spot to pull up, it’s well worth exploring on foot if your kids are up to it — a good way to get them ready for bed before Santa arrives too.
