New Year’s Eve fireworks celebrations – TICKETS REQUIRED FROM THIS YEAR

From this year London’s New Year’s Eve fireworks will require tickets. For the first time 100,000 tickets are being made available to the public with each one guaranteeing a good view of the celebrations and a better visitor experience.  People can book up to four tickets, each subject to a £10 administration fee, by visiting Ticketing is not for profit with every penny of the administration fee being used to pay for the ticketing itself, and the extra infrastructure the decision to ticket will bring.


Since it was first staged at the London Eye on the South Bank in 2003, the numbers of people heading to see the acclaimed pyrotechnic and lighting display have mushroomed from an estimated 100,000 people in its first year to more than 400,000 in 2012. Last year around half a million people are estimated to have headed to see the display, putting enormous strain on transport and safety infrastructure.  Apparently ticketing the event was the best way to ensure the safety of those attending and to help secure the long term future of what has become an iconic London event.

Personally I would love to spend New Year’s Eve on a boat roaming on the Thames and watching the fireworks from there. City Cruises has a special Autumn/Winter offer: with every single or return adult ticket, a child travel for free.
