New Year breaks in London
London’s New Year celebrations seem to get better each year and the fireworks over the London Eye are absolutely incredible. You can have a fantastic night out if you join the thousands of people lining the banks of the Thames to watch the fireworks and see in the New Year. Alternatively you can join one of the massive parties in Trafalgar Square or in the city’s parks, bars and venues. If you want to get it on the official action you’ll need to book in advance as many of the clubs and official arenas are ticket only. London really does have the most spectacular New Year’s celebrations in the world but if that wasn’t enough you will also have a great chance to see the New Year’s Day parade which is the largest of its kind worldwide and is a fantastic showcase of Britain’s talent, showmanship and excellence.
