What to do in London for New Year’s Eve 2013

Posted by on December 25, 2012

One night we all gather in one breath to share a great time with the coming of the New Year: New Year’s Eve in London is great, classic, charming and full of activities for all tastes and all budgets. The cascade of fireworks are ready to rock out in the shadow of Big Ben.

At the stroke of midnight on December 31 there will be twelve chimes of the clock tower and the area in front of the London Eye shall become the protagonist and the fireworks can begin. Do not leave the house at the last minute: the suggestion which applies to many capitals is to reach the desired places in advance since the circulation will be reduced because of the enormous influx of people.

Westminster Underground stations, St. James Park and Embankment (Circle Line) will be closed at 21. In any case across the board from 23:45 to 4:30 circulation is free of charge. Plus do not forget that we also celebrate in Trafalgar Square.

2013 starts as usual for the new year with the London New Year Day Parade: ten thousand artists from around the world, music, cheerleaders, floats and an ecstatic crowd. It all starts in Parliament Square passing through Pall Mall, Piccadilly Circus and crossing the corner of Berkeley Street and Piccadilly Circus Street in the early afternoon.
