Where? Clissold Park, Hackney

When? Saturday, November 4th, 5pm

If you like your pyrotechnics with a good musical accompaniment, then this is the display for you, as the Clissold Park team sets their impressive 20-minute display to music. The theme for the event this year is ‘Movies’, so if you feel like getting creative, come dressed as your favourite film character!

The event kicks off at 5pm, so head down early to catch a ride at the funfair and tuck into some grub from one of the many food and drink stalls.

Where? Southwark Park, Central London

When? Sunday, November 5th, 5:30pm

Southwark Park’s fireworks display is the perfect end to a day of sight-seeing around Central London. This stunning spot is set along the South Bank of the River Thames, so you can watch the fireworks soar into the sky above Tower Bridge. Gates open at 5pm, with tasty refreshments available for the show.

If you prefer, you could head up high to the Oxo Tower for a cocktail or two, and enjoy the display in comfortable warmth!

There’s always a big turnout for this East London favourite, so make sure you arrive in plenty of time to enjoy a warm mulled wine whilst you wait for the dazzling display. Refreshments will be available from 5.30pm.

Where? Primrose Hill, Regent’s Park

When? Saturday 4th & Sunday 5th November

Primrose Hill is arguably one of the best vantage points in London to take in spectacular views across the city on Bonfire Night. Bring a flask of tea and a blanket, and settle down to watch the fireworks fly above the skyline. The park closes at 7pm, so catch some of the earlier displays and then head back down to get a drink at The Lansdowne.

Wrap up warm, be safe, and go and enjoy one of the most magical nights of the year in London!
