London's spectacular New Year's Eve fireworks display at the London Eye is famous around the world.
At midnight, Big Ben's famous "bongs" will ring out, followed by the UK's largest annual fireworks display.
Where to Watch the Fireworks
London's New Year's Eve fireworks display is hugely popular, with hundreds of thousands of people going to see the display each year.
This year’s fireworks event will be ticketed. This will ensure the event stays safe and fun for everyone, and that all those with a ticket will get a great view. On 26 September, tickets priced at £10 each, will be available from www.london.gov.uk/nye from 12pm (UK time). You may book up to four tickets per person.
If you do get a ticket to the fireworks, you will be able to watch the incredible display from the ticketed viewing areas. Once the fireworks come to an end, join together with friends and strangers alike for a rousing rendition of Auld Lang Syne. If you miss out on a ticket, you can still enjoy the full show broadcast live on TV on BBC One.
The celebrations carry on until 1245am with a live DJ set. Stay to the end and you’ll find it easier to get out of the ticketed area and make your journey home.
There are also lots of other celebrations happening in bars, restaurants and clubs across London, but plan ahead, as many will also be ticketed or need to be booked in advance.
