It’s gearing up to be a big one this year: New Year’s Eve celebrations in London, as always, are taking us in to the new decade with flair. What’s more iconic than the London Fireworks at New Year’s Eve? The fireworks are spectacular to see, but things can often get a bit crowded along the riverside. If you’ve missed out on getting tickets to the event, here are some of the lesser-known spots that Londoners go to see the fireworks with a bit more room to breathe.
Famous for being the hang-out spot of choice for many celebrities,Primrose Hill offers amazing views through a gap in the trees that frames the fireworks so exactly you’d think they have done it on purpose. Almost sixty-three feet above sea level, you’ll get a phenomenal view of the famous display and may even spot some familiar faces among the revelers.
Hampstead Heath is the third biggest park in London and home to some secluded little spots like Parliament Hill perfect for getting a glimpse of the spectacle. The lovely village-like surroundings are home to some traditional English pubs and if you’re lucky enough to find one open until late, it’s the perfect place to warm up after spending the New Year’s countdown on the heath.
If you’re willing to splash the cash, the Southbank Centre’s very own Royal Festival Hall has been decked out for their New Year’s Eve five-floor spectacular. At midnight, head up to the private terraces for an unbeatable view of the fireworks that are so close you’ll feel like you could reach out and touch.
