Crowds lined Blackfriars Bridge, the Queen's Walk on the South Bank, Waterloo Bridge and Victoria Embankment to watch the annual firework display marking the City's new mayoral year.
The display was fired from a barge moored on the Thames between Waterloo and Blackfriars bridges.
Eight pyrotechnicians spend two days getting more than half a tonne of giant fireworks into position and ready for launch.
