Firework watching on Primrose Hill, to “unpretentious fun” in Crouch End, festivities on New Year’s Eve.
People from across London will descend onto Primrose Hill on New Year’s Eve to take up one of the best seats in the capital to view the celebrations and fireworks across London.
The Hill promises better views than most other London parks, and there should be a jubilant atmosphere as the clock strikes midnight.
The Royal Parks’ team will be keeping the area open until 1am, allowing revellers to take in the sights of fireworks, including a prime view of the famous London New Year’s Eve fireworks over the Thames.
Fireworks and paper lanterns are banned from being set off on Primrose Hill itself, and police will be at the gates to stop anybody attempting to bring them in.
