Get to London for a banging New Years Eve
And this year isno exception, thanks in part to that rather scarecrow-ish and yet somehow quite delightful man they call mayor, Boris Johnson. He's only gone and confirmed that the city will be hosting yet another fantabulous firework display to ring the New Year in, which happily coincides with the ten year anniversary of the London Eye.
People staying in London hostels, however, have been advised to consider planning out their night's entertainment in advance as lots of venues are quite likely to be ticketed with advance booking. Best to avoid disappointment, if at all possible. Luckily, as public transport is the bee's knees on New Year's Eve this year and free, travel all night is going to be widely available.
Boris (great name) has said: "The fireworks are part of a dazzling range of attractions all across the capital over the festive season. For visitors and Londoners alike, there is something for everyone."
This might be good news for anyone out in London who missed out on the recent Lord Mayor's Show, which was held on November 14th, a centuries-old tradition that's been going on for almost 800 years. No matter - New Year's Eve is sure to be just as much of a spectacle.
