Tickets to London’s New Year’s Eve festivities go on sale this week. Grab yours quickly to witness one of the world’s greatest shows.

On the 31st December each year London hosts one of the world’s most spectacular fireworks display. While it used to be free to attend the event, the City of London began charging visitors in 2014.

This means that anyone without an authorised ticket will have to watch from a distance or on BBC One ( although there are still plenty of great vantage points like Primrose Hill, Parliament Hill and Harrow on the Hill).

Each year more than 3,000 people work together to ensure that London’s celebrations run smoothly. The renowned display will feature more than 12,000 fireworks, 2,000 lighting cues and 30 tonnes of equipment floating on the Thames.

If you want to be close to the action you can register your tickets from this Friday 29th September. Visit for more information. Tickets cost £10 per person.
