November has started in full force this year, with a successful Halloween marking the end of October and Bonfire night going off around the country without a hitch – despite Storm Ciaran doing its best to disrupt our celebrations.
With those plans now safely out of the way, shops and people alike are turning their attention to Christmas. Whether you’re an early bird or a last-minute Christmas planner, you can’t avoid the light displays popping up in the streets, decorations filling up the seasonal aisles in shops, and the slowly increasing radio appearances of Christmas tunes.
With the coming of Christmas and the closing of 2023, life can get a bit hectic. Braving the hustle and bustle of the shops to buy presents, meeting up with family for gift exchanges and finding the time to tidy up the house ready for Christmas gatherings leaves very little time to plan for things that aren’t Christmas. And that includes the all-important New Year’s Eve celebrations.
To take some pressure off, you might like to consider attending one of the many New Year’s Eve (NYE) events that are being hosted around the country. These events are pre-booked and all the hard work is done for you, so you can simply arrange your travel and look forward to a good night.
New Year’s events in London
One of the best cities to celebrate the coming of the new year is in the capital itself. There’s a huge range of choice when it comes to NYE events in London and something to suit all ages and interests. For example, you could book the brilliant boat party, which starts at Westminster Pier, takes in the firework show, and docks at an exclusive secret after-party. Or you could catch a concert, enjoy some comedy, or take to the dancefloor at a club classics night to welcome 2024 in style.
If you’re looking to make a trip of it, the best way to experience London for New Year is to get the train, book a hotel room for the night and enjoy the experience. If you travel down early enough, you could catch one of the last shows in the London theatres, such as The Phantom of The Opera, which is being performed at His Majesty’s Theatre.
The new year is a time for new beginnings, new opportunities might be on the horizon and new experiences too. So consider starting the year by doing something unexpected that’s also easy to organise.
