Where to watch free NYE fireworks in London?
If you would like to keep £10 note in your pocket, keep reading! Watch the fireworks and celebrate the beginning of a wonderful New Year in Cannon Street (keep in mind Cannon Street Tube Station may close from 8pm), around St Paul's Cathedral, Mansion House or Bank. All of these areas are outside of the main ticketed area but still give you a good sky view.
Additionally, get yourself to Tower Bridge, Southwark or Millennium Bridge, all of them are great spots but will get busy. Be prepared to get squashed, after all it is a part of the New Year’s Eve experience. Another option you should know about is Parliament Hill with slightly distant view but much less crowded – you really can’t have it all. We hope you will enjoy the firework display!
‘Be Classy at Sky Garden’
Dust your disco shoes and dance the night away at Sky Garden with a ‘Studio 54’ themed party on 35th floor. Stunning city views with tropical greenery, a nine-piece party band as well as late-night DJs promise night to remember. You could either go for a party or splash the cash and book one of the dining packages in the Fenchurch Restaurant or Darwin Brasserie. Whichever one you choose, you will not be disappointed as this is one of the most fabulous places to spend the NYE.
Electronic Sessions - NYE Fireworks Boat Party at Temple Pier
The best possible view of the firework display will be from NYE Fireworks Boat Party which will stop close to the London Eye at midnight - 15 years of running this kind of event gives organisers a prime spot on the Thames. With two fully heated floors, tickets starting from £80, two bars serving drinks at affordable prices (their promise is not to increase prices of drinks during NYE) - it provides value for money and it is rare to find it during NYE in London. Plus you will be dancing to the best '80s and '90s club classics and disco tunes all night long.
Bar Salsa at Temple
Spend the NYE in the South American style at Bar Salsa in Temple, pull out your best dance moves because Salsa is a dance full of energy, passion and fun, refresh yourself with a glass of bubbly in your hand and watch the fabulous display of fireworks. Tickets start from £20 (affordable, right) for this authentic night full of surprises.
