Go to the event 

To get the best seats in the house, you’ll need to secure a ticket when they go on sale later in the year. This event has required a ticket every year since 2014 and, with last year’s event being cancelled due to Covid-19, you can expect these fireworks to be more popular than ever in 2022.

If you’re lucky enough to get a ticket, you’ll get the best view in London of the dazzling New Year’s Eve fireworks. Plus, you’ll get to hear Big Ben chime as the clock strikes midnight to make it feel extra-special.

Cannon Street 

If you want the best view without paying for a ticket, then Cannon Street is the place to go. Located just outside the ticketed zone, this riverside view lets you witness the New Year’s Eve fireworks in a prime spot without breaking the bank.

You won’t be the only one who’s looking for a cheap spot for the show, however, so get there early to beat the crowds and guarantee a first-class view.

Alexandra Palace

The New Year’s Eve fireworks display in London is huge, which means that you won’t have to be squashed in the crowds to enjoy them. Alexandra Palace is a good location for those who live nearby and don’t want to travel in or for those who want a more chilled evening with friends.

Take a bottle of wine and raise a glass while you watch London’s New Year’s Eve fireworks display from afar. The views are exceptional and you’ll still hear them bang and pop.

On your TV

If you can’t make it to London to watch the 2022 New Year’s Eve fireworks display then don’t fret. Each year, the full display is broadcasted live on the BBC. All you have to do to watch it is make sure that you’ve paid your TV licence and tune into the programme. So gather a few friends and enjoy front-row seats from the comfort of your home!
