HAPPY NEW YEAR!

New Years Eve celebrations in London on 31st December 2011 and into 1st January 2012. 

Security is increased on one of the biggest and most fun nights of the year. Fireworks, music and listening to the clock as Big Ben ‘bongs’ into 2012. Midnight fireworks display by the Thames and attracts huge crowds, usually around 250,000 people. The viewing areas fill up at least 2-3 hours before midnight, so those planning on seeing in the New Year in London will be arriving early.

A live DJ set from Radio 1’s Nihal will entertain before and after midnight starting at 10pm. The famous Big Ben will bong, just before the launch of the biggest annual fireworks display from the London Eye. Tickets are not required to view the fireworks so be on the lookout for those trying to sell tickets. Visitors will be advised to inform a member of staff, a steward or a police officer if anybody attempts to sell them tickets to this free event.

We are expecting big crowds in central London making everything a little more difficult and visitors will have to walk further than usual to reach the destination. The fireworks display viewing areas have a limited capacity and start getting full from 8pm. Security, wardens will be in place as well as a signed walk route (7.1km / 4.4 miles) around the viewing areas Alcohol, food and drink will not be on sale at the event but most people will be bringing alcohol.
