This year’s New Year’s Eve fireworks will be ticketed again, so if you want an up close and personal spot on the Victoria Embankment, then you’ll have to book in advance.
Tickets haven’t been released as of September, but they sell out fast, so it’s worth signing up for alerts on the mailing list. If you’re reading this and the first wave of tickets has already sold out, the second wave usually goes on sale November 30th. Luckily, the fireworks don’t happen on the ground so there will be plenty of free vantage points to watch in the surrounding areas.
As always, the pyrotechnics will also be broadcast on live TV and streamed in 360 degrees video by the BBC. They say the best views of the fireworks are always on TV, so there’s absolutely no reason to feel bad if you don’t fancy shivering with the crowds.
Be sure to brush up on the lyrics to Auld Lang Syne if you’re venturing out onto the streets!
