This Captivating Time-Lapse Shows London Entering 2019 In Style

Here’s how London looked on the first day of 2019, starting with that epic firework display.

“Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind? Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and days o’ lang syne!”

As we were singing our hearts out to a song we don’t actually know the words to, a camera placed on the roof of London Hilton Park Lane was capturing the first moments of the new year. For 24 hours – from midnight on New Year’s Eve, to midnight on New Year’s Day – this encapsulating time-lapse shows the city entering 2019 with a beautiful bang, before going to sleep and waking up to a somewhat cloudy January 1. Watch it here:

Big thanks to the team at Hilton Park Lane and Golley Slater for sending over the footage.
