New Year’s Eve in London is all about fun and celebration and we all want to have a great time.
If you are planning to celebrate in Central London, particularly if you want to attend the Mayor of London’s New Year’s Eve fireworks, it pays to plan ahead, including:
- Travel plans before the fireworks event
- Where you plan to be at midnight.
- How to get home.
No Ordinary night
New Year’s Eve in Central London it’s one of the busiest nights of the year – the Mayor’s midnight fireworks display on the banks of the Thames attracts around 250,000 people. The popular viewing areas are full up to three hours in advance, and the areas around the Thames are always thronging with people eagerly anticipating the display.
You should consider these factors before deciding whether to head in to enjoy the spectical and firework display.
One of the best places to be
London is still one of the best places to be on New Year’s Eve. Pubs and restaurants, bars and clubs are open well into the night right across the capital. But be aware most pubs and clubs are ticketed, so, if you haven’t booked in advance you may be disappointed to find there are few, if any, places to enjoy a drink or eat both before and after the event.
Many people choose to bring in the New Year at home with family and friends. Visit London has a comprehensive list of events local to you over the Christmas and New Year period.
It wouldn’t be London without Big Ben’s ‘bongs’ so we relay them across all viewing areas, before launching the UK’s largest annual fireworks display from the London Eye. The 9-minute display for the first time this year includes a specially created musical soundtrack.
