New Year's Eve Fireworks
Tuesday, December 31, 2013
London Eye, Jubilee Gardens, South Bank, South Bank, London, SE1 7PB
Tube: Embankment Underground Station, Westminster Station, Waterloo Station
The annual New Year's Eve Fireworks display, launched from the foot of the London Eye and from rafts on the Thames, is visible from most of central London: the basic rule is that if you can see the London Eye, you'll be able to see the show. They cram enough firepower for an hour-long display into ten explosive minutes, lighting up the sky for miles around. The best views are from Victoria Embankment, the South Bank, and Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge. Hungerford Bridge is closed after 8pm and there's also no entry to Westminster Bridge after this time.
