New Year's Eve Fireworks:
The highlight of the evening is the fireworks display that the city of London puts on and launches from the foot of the London Eye and from rafts on the Thames River. London’s display is world-class and iBooknow.com doubts you could find a better city to see such a spectacular.
Although the display is visible from most of central London there are some vantage points that are special. But as long as you can see the extraordinary 135 meters tall London Eye you will see the show. The greatest views are from Victoria Embankment, the South Bank, the Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge. For details about this year’s show visit the official website: www.london.gov.uk/newyearseve.
