Want to watch the fireworks in London on New Year’s Eve?
Well you need to be quick, because tomorrow is your last chance to grab tickets.
London’s spectacular NYE firework display is the crowning glory of year end celebrations, and tickets only cost £10. Most of them have sold out already, but the last batch go on sale tomorrow (Friday 1st December) at midday. You won’t be able to rock up on the night and buy them – these are the last ones left in town! Tickets are only available from See Tickets using this link, and you can book up to four tickets per person.
The New Year’s Eve Fireworks give you the chance to see the UK’s largest fireworks display in all their explosive glory, and sing a rousing chorus of Auld Lang Syne too. Here are five reasons why you should definitely make the effort to get out and see the show:
1. Big Ben will chime again!
London hasn’t been quite the same without the joyful sound of bells/hourly reminder that you’re ageing (depending on your viewpoint). But NYE 2017 affords a now-rare opportunity to hear ol’ Ben make some noise. Savour these moments, because they won’t come around much until restoration work is completed in 2021.
Can you think of a better way to start 2018 than by filling up your Instagram feed with an endless parade of colourful snapshots? Sure, you could start the year with a juice cleanse or giving up chocolate, but this is much easier and won’t cost you any of your sanity.
3. You can probably get home for free.
Last year, TfL (in partnership with Kayak) gave every Londoner a belated Christmas present by making their entire transport network free to ride between 23:45 on NYE, and 4:30am on January 1st. We’re keeping our fingers crossed they might be so generous again this year, which would leave you with literally no excuse to stay home.
4. There’s nothing worse than a New Year’s Eve without plans.
Few things are worse than sitting at home in your pyjamas, scrolling through Facebook to see everyone making merry as 2017 slips away. Take it from us!
5. It’s the last good thing about winter.
Oh sure, it’s all fun and games when the leaves fall, the Christmas lights go up, and the sound of carols makes commuting marginally less joyless. But when you wake up with a New Year’s Day hangover, you’ll have officially reached the tipping point when winter goes from charming to wearisome. January is going to be a long, cold slog, but at least you’ll make some happy memories to sustain you, right?
