Ring in the new year at one of the best New Years Eve events and parties in London with our helpful guide.
It can be hard to decide what to do on New Year’s Eve – who to spend it with, whether to get tickets to a big event or go to that cosy dinner party down the road. If you’re thinking of spending New Year in London, here are a couple of events that we recommend – and if you hear of any corkers do let us know!
Vietnamese New Year’s Eve Gala
This NYE event has been going on for over 25 years and is a very refined evening. You’ll waltz to Strauss classics played by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in Vietnamese style whilst elegant dancers perform alongside.
Where: Barbican Centre, EC2Y 8DS
Tickets: from £19.50
Nostrovia Battersea Park
This night is sure to be a special one. Battersea Park is being transformed into a giant Russian playground where you can party like Tsars. Enjoy a disco, dodgems and a waltzer as well as entertainment from fire eaters, acrobats, contortionists and trapeze artists. It’s rather unlikely you’ll be twiddling your thumbs!
Where: Battersea Park, SW11 4NJ
Of course there are the renowned fireworks at the London Eye which you can see from various points along the Thames as well as from boats on the Thames. Don’t go without a plan and make sure arrive early to avoid disappointment.
Why not stop off at our Mayfair cocktail bar to start your evening – we’ve got some special Christmas cocktails for you to enjoy like these >
