venues to watch London’s New Year Fireworks

Take your new year to new heights with breathtaking views of London and an electrifying evening at one of the best venues in London with views of the New Year Eve firework display

The annual New Year’s Eve Fireworks display, launched from the foot of the London Eye and from rafts on the Thames, is one of the most spectacular in the world. The stunning display lights up the sky for miles around and is watched by millions. If you want to get tickets to be inside the restricted areas around Waterloo then you need to get a ticket (100,000 go on sale here). If however you’d love to see the fireworks but don’t fancy being part of the crowds we’ve lined up some great London venues where you can eat, drink and be merry in luxurious surroundings and still get a spectacular view of the fireworks.

8 At The Londoner

Secure yourself a booth in 8 At The Londoner’s rooftop bar and you’ll be able to combine views of the city’s famous firework  whilst tucking into exquisite Japanese plates, chased down with whisky. Alternatively head to its French sister, Whitcomb’s for a four-course feast.

★  Aqua Shard

With its 270 degree view of London, Aqua Shard takes some beating as the best place to watch New Year’s Eve fireworks. The floor-to-ceiling windows ensure guests enjoy a jaw-dropping view of the captial, whilst enjoying a five-course dinner, champagne, live music and a DJ from midnight until 3.30am.
