Everything you need to know about the London NYE fireworks



Tickets go live this weekend.

It's almost November, which means it's nearly Christmas, which means New Year's Eve is right around the corner. The London NYE fireworks display is returning to London to welcome in 2024. Revellers are set to enjoy a spectacular display that will light up the London sky as you ring in the new year. The London Eye will twirl like a Catherine wheel, painting the night with vivid colours and breathtaking pyrotechnics. It's a sight you won't want to miss.

And if you didn't guess already, tickets for this much-awaited event are going to sell out fast — and they go on sale on Friday, 3 November. The ticket price has seen a slight bump this year, now costing £20, and you can only buy up to four tickets, making it a fantastic opportunity to gather your friends for a night to remember.

Once you get your tickets, you'll be able to choose one of six viewing areas: Blue, Red, Pink, Green, White, or the Accessible Viewing Area, Orange. Each area offers a unique perspective of the fireworks, and your choice should be influenced by convenience and accessibility, especially if you're attending with friends. 

Blue offers stunning views from Westminster Bridge, Red is positioned along the Embankment, Pink is located near the London Eye itself, for a close-up experience and Green sits by the Victoria Embankment Gardens. Additionally, White provides a lovely view from Whitehall and the Orange Accessible Viewing Area offers facilities for those with specific accessibility needs.

So, if you're attending with friends, it's crucial to book tickets for the same viewing area because once you're allocated to an area, you won't be able to switch or move around, so plan accordingly.

One thing you need to note is that you won't be able to cross bridges before or after the fireworks, so choose a viewing area that's convenient for your mode of transportation.

If you're ready to bid farewell to the old year and embrace the new with a bang, be sure to grab your tickets as soon as they become available. This is your chance to start the new year in style.
