Happy new year! Today I want to share my guide to spending New Year’s Eve in London. This city is a great place to ring in the new year, not least because of its big fireworks show.

New Year’s Eve in London

I hope you enjoyed your New Year’s Eve wherever you celebrated in the world. I had the opportunity to watch the New Year’s Eve fireworks in London for the first time, and it was an amazing show.

The annual fireworks display in London takes place right on the Thames above Big Ben and the London Eye. It’s one of the world’s best shows on December 31st, and it lasts an impressively long time.

The city requires people to have tickets to watch the fireworks along the river, but I was lucky enough to have a friend with a great view of the show from her flat in Lambeth. The London Eye took center stage, and it was a good vantage point.

It was amazing to see the display, and I created a video of the fireworks show so you can see it and experience the magic.

I hope you enjoy the video, and that you get a chance to spend New Year’s Eve in London yourself someday if you haven’t already. It’s one of the best places for New Year’s Eve in the UK.

Here’s to a great year ahead!

  1. I always find it interesting to sit somewhere quiet as midnight approaches on New Year’s Eve and then just experience the boom of London exploding around you. Fireworks seem to go off from every direction and the echo just reverberates. Fun x

  2. I watched the fireworks on the TV and wow, they were spectacular this year! How lucky to have a friend who lives nearby so you could watch them in the warm 😉

  3. Ah, I went to see them a couple of years ago – aren’t they just stunning? You were so lucky to see them this year 🙂 What a great friend to have 😉 haha xxx

  4. How lovely!! We typically go to the big block party in Nashville but this year we bought tickets to a private party at one of the bars… With a great view of the block party going on on the street below! Haha it was a blast and much warmer than it would have been outside.

    Happy new year!!!!

  5. I have to say I think I prefer the fireworks from last year! Same as always, I didn’t had any view to the fireworks so I’ve followed from television. You had a pretty good view, well done
