I wish you all the best in forthcoming New Year 2018! This time from London. As usual this is the best place in whole UK, where you can enjoy a New Year day. All tickets for New Year’s eve has been sold out, nontheless it doesn’t mean, that you won’t see a beoutiful fireworks at all. There is possibly a few remarkable spots, from where a New Year celebration is to be clearly visible, just from a short distance.
I am going to describe about one place, where I have been with my girlfriend.

Primrose hill

This is a Primrose Hill viewpoint, loceted close to Camden Town and Regent Park.  The quickest way to get there is from Chalk Farm tube station (Northern line). If you want to enjoy a Camden Town you should go out on the Camden Town station (Northern line). For someone, who is coming from the north the best option will be Swiss Cottage or St. John’s Wood station (Jubilee line). The easiest way to reach the Primrose Hill by underground is from Baker Street station, where you can get using 5 lines (Bakerloo, Circle, Hammersmith & City, Jubilee and Metropolitan). You would enjoy the Regent Park, but it’s closed during the night and also not fully lit.

Being in London during the New Year’s eve you can do many things. There is a lot of pubs, restaurants, clubs and another venues where you can have a good time. If you are aimed at firweorks only and you would like to see it for free there is a lot of places to see during the night. When the weather is fine you can enjoy a beautiful Greater London panorama from one of the bridge or go do some shopping e.g. on Oxford Street when raining. You will not regret the New Year’s eve night in London for sure! See the examples below:
