Remember last New Year’s Eve in Tier 4 London, when we all spent the night cooped up inside our own homes? Perhaps you decided to sack it off altogether and were tucked up in bed by 10pm. Maybe you got a takeaway in, stuck on Jools Holland and half-heartedly toasted good riddance to 2020 with a glass of cornershop prosecco at midnight. At the very most, you might have danced in your kitchen with your housemates to a live-streamed DJ set or done a quiz with your pals over Zoom. 

However you chose to ring in 2021, this year, celebrations across the city will look very different. Come Friday December 31 2021, there’ll hopefully be many more things to celebrate and a lot more ways to do so. We’re talking packed, sweaty dancefloors at NYE parties across the city, bars and pubs heaving with revellers getting the rounds in, fireworks lighting up the London skyline once more, and even handshakes and hugs at midnight.

And that’s not all. Therell be the usual parade, festive things to do and New Years Day parties to attend come Saturday January 1 2022. And after everything that’s happened in the last couple of years, it’ll be that bit sweeter than before. 

Still trying to decide where to see in 2022? Look no further than our comprehensive guide to how to spend your New Year in London. Don’t you dare settle for the ‘Hootenanny’. 

RECOMMENDED: Make the most of Christmas in London too.

See out this strange old year in style!
