Tickets to the New Year’s Eve fireworks in London go on sale on Fri 3rd November – here’s what you need to know
There are two types of people when it comes to New Year’s Eve: the type who thinks it’s a massively overrated night full of queues, overpriced parties and rammed Tubes, and the type who thinks it’s the best, biggest night of the year. If you’re in the latter camp, we’ve got some good news – the New Year’s Eve fireworks display is headed back to London to ring in 2024.
This year, there’s been a price increase, with tickets now costing £20 (up from £15 last year). There’ll be more than 100,000 tickets available and you can buy up to four if you want to bring your pals along with you. If you’re ready to grab yours, set your alarms for midday on Fri 3rd November when general sale starts. As usual, they’ll definitely sell out, so you’ll have to snap them up quickly for a chance to see the London Eye spinning like a Catherine wheel – or else you’ll end up stuck in front of the TV.
If you do manage to nab a ticket (or four), you’ll be allocated to one of six viewing areas: either Blue, Red, Pink, Green, White or the Accessible Viewing Area (Orange). Bear in mind, if you’re coming with friends you’ll need to be in the same viewing area as you cannot move between them on the night. It’s also important to note that you won’t be able to cross bridges before or after the fireworks, so choose a viewing area based on whichever is easiest for you to travel to.
With that said, it’s gonna be a spectacular display; if you don’t want to miss it, grab your tickets below.
