where to watch the fireworks in london

Rather than set off a couple of rockets in your backyard or light some soggy sparklers on your balcony, let the professionals take care of the pyrotechnics by heading to a proper fireworks display. From the annual Ally Pally extravaganza to the big show in Battersea, these are the best places to watch the fireworks in London.

Alexandra Palace

Ally Pally always put on a good show when it comes to the fireworks and this year is no different. Not only do they have one of the best viewpoints in London, they’ve also got a giant bonfire, Luna Cinema screenings, a German bier festival and DJ sets from Rob Da Bank and Jazzie B.

Battersea Park

Fireworks are back at Battersea Park this year, with the bonfire being lit before the display kicks off. If you need some pre- or post-fireworks treats, Circus West Village at nearby Battersea Power Station will see you right, and there’s even a fireworks afterparty at Battersea Evolution.

Morden Park & Wimbledon Park

Merton Borough Council is going big this year. Hosting four different shows, in two different locations – Morden Park and Wimbledon Park – the events promise to blow you away. There’s one at 6.45pm for the kids, and another, much noisier and altogether more fun one at 8pm, with a funfair running in between and afterwards.
