    New Year's Eve celebrations in London

    There is plenty to see and do on New Year's Eve in London. Whether you want to dance late into the night, enjoy a lavish dinner or watch the fireworks, there's something for everyone.

    Fireworks in Central London

    The highlight of New Year's Eve in London is, of course, the fireworks show in Central London. As Big Ben strikes midnight, the fireworks show at the London Eye erupts a few hundred metres away.

    Since 2014, you need an admission ticket to attend the fireworks. This way, the safety of all visitors is guaranteed. Don't have a ticket but want to see the fireworks? Then you should find a spot on Cannon Street. For a more distant view, head to Primrose Hill or Greenwich Park. Both are higher than Central London, so you'll still have a great view, even if it's from far away.

    NYE cruises on the Thames

    One of the best places to admire the fireworks in Central London is from the water. The fireworks are set off along the River Thames. There are various cruises, including a gala dinner and entertainment or just the sailing. Either way, a unique experience is guaranteed! Read more about the NYE cruises here..
