London, England, UK, 31 December 2014, Midnight

London city skline by night

London is a great city to see in the new year, with so many attractions to offer, from famous landmarks to a quite dazzling range of bars, restaurants and nightclubs. Of course there is the iconic Big Ben, which strikes the official midnight bells and represents the countdown focus for the whole world, positioned as it is on the Greenwich Meriden, marking the point from which everyone else measures their time.

I have actually London on new year's eve, and although it was quite a few years ago now it still ranks as one of my best. I have a vague recollection of a series of bars throughout the evening, then heading to Trafalgar Square where people were congregating to count down to midnight with their friends, with a few hardy souls even braving the freezing water of the famous fountains.

If you're in London on new year's eve then it makes sense to also stick around for the parade on new yeart's day, which is a spectacle well worth seeing. For full details of this year's parade, including the times, lineup and options for live online streams, visit here: London New Year Parade 2015

Fireworks, Events & Party Listings

 

London's New Year's Eve parties are many and varied, with something to cater for pretty much any taste. One of the most popular diversions for those with a decent budget is to take a cruise on the River Thames, pretty much guaranteeing yourself one of the best views of the fireworks. There are several companies offering this service, and I really like the look of this one:

River Thames NYE Cruise

The 2013 fireworks lasted around 11 minutes and we can expect similar this year - they take place on the Thames around the London Eye (now officially the EDF Energy London Eye - typical of London to embrace corporate sponsorship so gladly!) so anywhere along the river should afford you a pretty decent view. The designated viewing areas are expected to be full between 9 and 10pm and will be closed once they're at capacity so be sure to get there early! Disappointingly the London Eye itself is closed from 3pm on December 31st, which is a shame as it would be an excellent vantage point - probably a health and safety thing!

Gary Barlow has now announced that he will be performing live in London this new year, at teh Central Hall, in Westminster, including a break at midnight where he will take to roof of the venue, overlooking Big Ben, and lead the midnight countdown to the fireworks. Should be a great show - tickets available here.

There will be a Rockin New Year's Eve party in Victoria Park in Tower Hamlets, with live music from headline act Honeymoon Suite, Stephanie “WoJo” Wojtowicz and Beatles tribute act The Beagles, plus magic from The Amazing Corbin. There will also be a fireworks display at midnight.

You can also watch London New Years Eve Fireworks display from a variety of land-based vantage points. Watch the free fireworks from The Southbank, Westminster Bridge and Victoria Embankment, Greenwich Hill, Primrose Hill, and one of the several hugely popular London rooftop bars.

London's Southbank Centre is holding a Vintage New Year's Eve party across 4 floors of the Royal Festival Hall featuring vintage nightclubs, dance workshops and a terrace with great views of the fireworks over Big Ben and the London Eye - get tickets online here.

For live music fans then there is a huge event this new year's eve in London, with The Prodigy playing live at the city's O2 Arena. Competition for tickets will be fierce so if you would like to go make sure you secure your places early - tickets available here.

For something a little different, Somerset House are hosting a new year party using their outdoor ice rink as the focus of the event, with live DJs providing the entertainment, mulled wine to warm you up and a great view of the Mayor's fireworks from their River Terrace.

London is regarded by many as the global capital for clubbing, with some of the best clubs, best DJs and new music. Recommended venues to try out for New Years Eve include Gem Bar in Soho, Tiger Tiger, Oxygen, East Village, Cargo, Cafe de Paris, Madame Jo Jos, Floripa, Notting Hill Arts Club and Pacha. This site has some good listings of the top parties, with links for buying tickets:
