I searched for a NYE topic, but couldn't see one...apologies if there is one!
Despite living here for the past 2 years, this will be my first NYE in London. Do you have any recommendations as to some decent places to spend the evening? I'm not in to clubs, but am open to any other suggestions. Really, I'd like to stay around here/be by or on the river, although one of my guests is keen to venture to Greenwich...
How about a few drinks in one of SE1's excellent pubs (We'll be in the Lord Cylde or The Roebuck) followed by a meal in one of SE1's excellent restaurents (We'll be in La Constancia) followed by a walk down the Thames to see the fireworks. You won't get close unless you get there early and wait for hours. If you can't be bothered, you'll get a reasonable view from Southwark or Blackfriars Bridges. All the best for NYE
Thank you, Dave - Sounds like a perfect NYE to me, particularly The Roebuck. I may well see you in one SE1s finest! I'm keen to walk along the river, but not so keen on fighting through the hoards...we'll try and sneak on to one of the bridges.
Hi, I moved to Bermondsey in May so this will be my first New Years Eve in the area too.
Does anyone know what the river area is like between Bermondsey Wall East and The Angel?
Do people get out there and party!?
Is it possible to see any fireworks from this area as well?
