London is famous for several attractions. Aside from being historically rich, it also offers a lot of fun and remarkable activities, especially on New Year’s. If you haven’t experienced London’s amazing New Year’s celebration yet, we have listed some posh ideas for you to jumpstart 2017:
Watch the NYE Fireworks Display
Celebrated along the area of the River Thames, people from different parts of the world gather to witness the mesmerising display of pyrotechnics. You can try to watch the show from somewhere else, but you get the best view if you buy tickets and gain access to the Southbank area. Only limited seats are offered so make sure to get your tickets in advance to avoid the hassle.
Enjoy the New Year’s Eve Dinner Cruise
If you are unable to secure a ticket to the fireworks display, don’t fret. You can have a dazzling night with lavish food, drinks, music and a view of the fireworks display while on a cruise on River Thames.
Indulge yourself in world-class meals
London has more than 60 Michelin-starred restaurants. Book a table at one of these restaurants and enjoy award-winning food prepared by celebrity chefs.
Dance your way to 2017
Celebrate in style by dancing with jitterbugs like you! The entire city will be buzzing with life and several clubs will open its doors to anybody who enjoys music and dancing. Look up clubs like Electric Brixton, Heaven, Studio 338, Cargo, and a whole lot more!
You can simply relax in style and enjoy a glass of bubbly at one of London’s many champagne bars. Whether you want a quiet ambience or an alfresco mood, the city has so many bars to choose from!
See the lights under the ice
If you’re travelling with teens and/or kids, then partying at clubs may not be suitable. Luckily, the city of London has just about everything to offer so you can still welcome 2017 in style! You can spend your afternoon at Canary Wharf Ice Rink and marvel at the vibrant colours beneath the ice while you skate! If you want to go on a trip down the memory lane, try skating at Somerset House, Hampton Court or at the National Museum Ice Rink and enjoy skating with marvellous historical structures as your backdrop.
New Year’s Day Parade
Take your whole family to the streets of Central London and witness as 8,000 performers–dancers, marching bands, acrobats—congregate for a spectacular celebration. Your whole family will surely love the huge balloons, confetti, and festive music!
After-dark bus tour
On the first night of January 2017, enjoy a tour aboard on an open-top bus and be amazed at the panoramic view of London adorned with colourful Christmas lights. Sit back and relax for an hour and forty-five minutes and get to know London’s famous spots in a truly magical way.
