Is time to start planning the New Year’s Eve, the best celebration of the year! If you don’t have any idea of what you’ll be doing this year, this article is for you. Stay with us and discover the best guide for the NYE in London.
To say goodbye to the magical Christmas season, before you enter on a brand new year, start the day with a retrospective walk by the river, to think in all your accomplishes on 2017 and, more important than that, to visit the Christmas by the River market! It’s a festive winner, with views of Tower of London and Tower Bridge and an ace combination of homemade gifts and delicious food, sold from German-style chalets.
Now, thinking on the real party, let’s start with “where to dine?”. Well, Sushi Samba offers you the best views of the city, Brazillian-Japonese inspired food and a Brazilian themed party, to enter in 2018 in the best way! In addition to Réveillon inspiration, they’ll feature The Rockets, a 9 piece band that combines R ‘n’ B, Rock ‘n’ Roll, Classic Soul and modern pop influences, a host of London’s best DJs, and their colorful, high-energy Samba dancers!
If you’re looking for a place to enjoy a good meal and watch the city coming to live with the festivity fireworks, we recommend to you a Great Gatsby New Year’s Eve at Sky Garden. They promise you to be the party of the year – set amongst the idyllic rooftop gardens and boasting spectacular city views across the Thames and beyond, this iconic space offers the perfect setting to watch London come alive as fireworks fill the sky and music fills the air.
If you have the time, at 5 pm in the Chiswick House and Garden, you can enjoy an annual event to mark the end of Chinese New Year, the Magical Lantern Festival. The festival’s procession of hand-sculpted illuminations, arranged throughout the landscaped grounds of the house, is never anything short of dazzling – and the organizers have promised this year to be bigger, bolder and bright than ever before.
For the grand final, nothing better than seeing the firework in the first person! By a ticket and guarantee the best place to see this. There will a number of viewing areas along the Thames and on Waterloo Bridge and Westminster Bridge, as well as an accessible viewing area. You can select your ideal spot when you buy your tickets.
After all the party, nothing better than starting the new year with the London’s New Year’s Day Parade. An American-style extravaganza of musicians dancers, acrobats, clowns and floats twirl, march and drum a 2.2-mile route beginning at the Ritz Hotel, taking in Piccadilly Circus, Lower Regent Street, Pall Mall, Trafalgar Square, Whitehall and Big Ben, with temporary grandstands erected for better viewing in some places.
Know you don’t have excuses to not start the year in the best way possible!
