Who has started thinking about New Year’s already? Probably not many of you, and this post is likely to seem rather early! But in-fact we have a very good reason for it. This year, if you want to enjoy a fabulous New Years, you will need to be prepared.
Already the dinner boats along the River Thames have sold out of New Year’s Eve tickets! So we are now here to make sure you do not miss out on the famous London firework displays entirely, as this year the Mayor has decided to run things a little differently.
For the first year ever, the firework display viewing platforms will be ticketed. This has been decided as progressively the New Year’s Eve fireworks have attracted larger audiences with last year recording over 500,000 spectators. This has been recognised as unsafe and therefore the number of spectators will be reduced to 100,000 by the restrictions of tickets.
Tickets came on sale at lunchtime today and are available to purchase now. If you would like to enjoy New Year’s Eve 2014 in central London, then we advise you purchase your tickets as quickly as possible, due to the very high demand that is expected. It is possible to buy up to four tickets at once, so you can buy with a small group of friends. Plus if you later find out that you can’t make it, there will be an option to refund your tickets up to 28 days prior.
As you will be so prepared for your New Years Eve celebrations, why don’t you book your hotel also? Flemings Mayfair will be a fantastic choice as we are in the beautiful Mayfair location where you can start you evening, and just a short 10-15 minute walk from the north entrances of the firework display.
