Christmas Raves and New Year Revelry

London has a plethora of activities to celebrate the New Year with flair and style. Here’s a list of things to do in London over the New Year.

New Year’s Eve fireworks are a world-renowned spectacle, attracting millions of spectators from across the globe. The fireworks display takes place over the Thames, with the London Eye as the centrepiece. You can watch the fireworks from various vantage points, including Westminster Bridge, Waterloo Bridge, Blackfriars Bridge, or the South Bank.

Restaurants and bars come alive with festive celebrations this time of year. From grand gala dinners to lively pub parties, there’s an option to suit every taste and budget. Take Rudds Bar, Blackfriars, for example. An independently run, three story venue, with staff who know how to hold a New Years party and will make the evening a night to remember. Try out the Thai menu too! In our opinion it’s the best value for money in town. Make sure to book your reservations well in advance, as popular venues fill up quickly.

Immerse yourself in the festive atmosphere with a performance of your choice, whether it’s a traditional opera or a modern rock concert. Theatres and concert halls host a variety of New Year’s Eve performances, from classical concerts to pop music extravaganzas. For any late night revelers, Heart And Souls, Winter Rave, at the Southbank Centre, will be throwing a party late into the night. The best part is that it’s free!

The Embankment transforms into a winter wonderland during the festive season, with twinkling lights and festive decorations. Take a leisurely stroll along the river, soaking in the magical atmosphere and enjoying the lively street performers.

Whether you’re seeking grand spectacles or intimate moments, London offers a variety of ways to celebrate the New Year in style. With its vibrant atmosphere, diverse attractions, and endless possibilities for fun, London is the perfect destination to ring in the new year with unforgettable memories.
