Make New Year’s Eve a little extra special this year by celebrating it in the vibrant city of London. Here are some tips to make the planning a bit easier and the night as thrilling and memorable as possible. New Year in London is one of the largest nights of the year, with festivities, parties and fun in every corner. And, even though the parties aren’t few, you should plan ahead as the best ones are very popular and likely to be booked up a long time in advance. It is especially useful to know that this year you need tickets for the spectacular fireworks display at the London Eye.
New Year in the sky
London Sky Bar’s New Year’s Eve Party offers the very best view of the fireworks, and the rest of the city. The venue offers a 360-degree view from the 28th floor of Millbank Tower, overlooking the London Eye, Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace, among other famous landmarks. With exotic food, bubbly drinks and a DJ playing the best party music, this night really has what it takes to make one of the most astounding and glamorous New Year experiences you’ve ever had.
Party on a boat
If you aren’t that fond of heights, there are plenty other ways to bring in the bells. A fun experience awaits you if you head to the Big Bang New Year’s Eve Party, which is a river cruise that takes place on the Thames. It is by no means a cheap experience, neither is it anything like a regular celebration. With a grand buffet, free champagne and cocktails, as well as a DJ spinning trendy tunes to make you dance all night long, the stage is set for an evening you will never forget. Just remember to leave your trainers at home and dress to match the sparkling atmosphere of a night like this.
Something a little different
Even though many see champagne, glitter and clubbing as synonymous with New Year celebrations, this isn’t for everyone. Luckily a diverse city like London has a lot more to offer. For example, you can head to the stunning Bush Hall and the White Mischief Extravaganza. With fine cabarets, circus, aerial stunts and music this is an event not to miss. The night is topped off with a few surprises that will wow you. Remember to put on your glad rags and make it an unforgettable night out.
If you feel the urge to have a bit of an exotic night out, Inamo Covent Garden is the place to go. The five-course oriental fusion menu will surely get your taste buds dancing of joy. With entertainment, such as a magician and a masterly quiz, this night is light, cheerful and different from the traditional celebrations. Of course, there will also be music and fireworks, as some things are just not worth changing.
Whatever way you choose to spend the last night of 2019, make sure to plan your journey to the city in advance as it is a very busy night. Stay in the heart of the West End, at Radisson Blu Edwardian Berkshire Hotel, and take advantage of easy access to the many events the world’s most-loved capital has to offer.
