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.
