New Year’s Eve Fireworks 2022

8:00pm – 12:45am
£10.00 (advance sales)

As always, the big annual New Year’s Eve fireworks display is a ticketed event. So if you want an up close and personal spot on the Victoria Embankment, then you’ll have to book in advance at £10.00 a pop.

How to get tickets for New Year’s Eve Fireworks 2019

The first wave of tickets, released in early October has already sold out. The second wave usually goes on sale November 30th, but it’s worth signing up for alerts on the mailing list if you’re looking to snap up the next batch. Luckily, the fireworks don’t happen on the ground. There’ll be plenty of free vantage points to watch from in the surrounding areas.

Watching the New Year’s Eve Fireworks on TV

As always, the pyrotechnics will also be broadcast on live TV and streamed in 360 degrees by the BBC. They say the best views of the fireworks are on TV, so there’s absolutely no reason to feel bad if you don’t fancy shivering with the crowds. The display is broadcast on BBC One, hosted by the usual procession of news anchors and minor UK celebrities. There’s usually some kind of big concert or performance too—generally aimed at older audiences.

Where else to go on NYE

Just be sure to brush up on the lyrics to Auld Lang Syne if you’re venturing out onto the streets!
