Why not get out of London for New Years Eve and head up to Edinburgh to celebrate Hogmanay - THE BEST way to bring in the new year. Stoke Travel is running a 24 hr party train from London to Edinburgh which gives you plenty of time to enjoy the party and get home in time to nurse the hangover before returning back to work.
