Typically, London is famous for its New Year's Eve fireworks display in the night sky, over the city center's River Thames, Big Ben and London Eye.

But we're bringing you the best of London's New Year's Eve events, to help you celebrate in in the capital with a little extra festive fun. Here are the top things to do in London if you're keen for a big night out, and to explore the city's banging music, and infamous New Year's Eve parties.

What are the best New Year's Eve celebrations in London?

When it comes to New Year's Eve events, it’s fair to say the UK is pretty unique, particularly the city of London. It offers a completely different night out depending on where you decide to head.

Besides its famous New Year's Eve fireworks, each corner of the city promises something different. While the central London clubs offer something more upmarket and glossy (and, let’s face it… pricey…) the further east or south-east you head, you’ll likely find something a little edgier.

Do I need to see the New Year's Eve fireworks?

London's New Year's fireworks display is undoubtedly impressive. It takes place this year from Sunday 31 December 2023 at 8:00pm right into New Year's Day at 12.30am. Just bear in mind that it's a ticketed event (tickets are £20 each), and you'll need those tickets to access certain areas.

You can get a pretty good view of the fireworks from other areas in London further along the river Thames - and it's certainly something the whole family can enjoy.

But hear us out: London is renowned for its nightlife offerings, and if you're in the city this New Year's, it's worth considering a night out to bring in 2024.

Which area should I spend New Year's Eve in London?

Most of our top picks for New Year’s Eve this year are outside of the central club circuit, clustered around London's Farringdon, Shoreditch and Tobacco Dock areas. But that said, we’ve got options south of the river too, including Ministry of Sound in Elephant and Castle to Greenwich’s Studio 338.

They'll be putting all that practice to good use with a massive NYE party featuring DJs G-Chase, Mazos, Michael Younger, Oneil McDowall and Sonny Kane.
