New Year’s Eve Fireworks in London: how to get tickets

Don't miss out on the chance to see 2019’s amazing Thameside firework display in real life

By Time Out London Things To Do

Working out how to get the best view of London’s New Year’s Eve fireworks display may seem impossible. But it's not to be missed, despite the sometimes elusive nature of the tickets. Not to blow our own trumpet, but our prodigious pyrotechnics make most other cities’ efforts look like damp squibs. 

Don't miss the chance to join the thousands lining the Thames on December 31 2019 to see the fireworks in person. Find out how to get your hands on tickets below, and watch a previous display for an idea of what to expect:

London’s New Year’s Eve Fireworks: how do I get tickets?

The first batch of tickets for the New Year’s Eve fireworks display usually go on sale around September, with another batch being released later in the year. The Mayor of London's website has more info, which you can sign up to be updated about ASAP, this website is also where the tickets have previously been on sale.

Last year, tickets were priced at £10 each and you were able to buy up to four tickets per person. 

Top reason to grab tickets instead of just heading down on the night is that the best firework viewing locations are sectioned off and made only available to those who have tickets, each with amazing views of the display guaranteed.

When you buy tickets you can pick from a range of viewing areas along the Thames and on Waterloo Bridge and Westminster Bridge, as well as an accessible viewing area. 

We’ll be updating this page with more details as they are announced.
