Is there any fireworks displays on over New Years? I vaguely remember seeing something on TV near the Big Ben, is that still on?
0Hi Fischer, your memory serves you right! NYE fireworks are on in London every single year and are completely free to attend. Grab yourself a spot in Westminster and raise a glass to 2017 as Big Ben strikes 12!
London is especially beautiful on New Year’s Eve when the fireworks go off. All the magic happens near Westminster bridge so try and get as close to this spot as you can. If you don’t want to be too close to the crowds at London Eye, then there are many other parts of town that offer beautiful views including:
Cannon Street Bridge
Alternatively, if you don’t mind not going to the actual fireworks and prefer watching it from the comfort of your home then you can watch the live fireworks on BBC One on December 31st.
