The annual pilgrimage to Primrose Hill is set to include even more people this New Year's Eve as many have been unable - or unwilling - to buy a ticket for the main London fireworks.

The Hill promises better views over London than most other London parks and it should be a jubilant atmosphere.

The skyline will also be lit up with a number of smaller displays taking place across the city.

The weather is set to be slightly warmer than previous nights (hovering around five degrees celsius) and will be cloudy. No rain has been forecast.

The closest tube stations are Chalk Farm and Camden Town.

Between 11.45pm and 4.30am, travel on the bus, Tube, tram, DLR and London Overground is free.

Those planning a trip are reminded that setting off fireworks in Primrose Hill is prohibited. The park will close at 1am.

There are also a number of pubs open in the area for those wanting to continue the party indoors.
