The annual New Year’s Eve fireworks at the London Eye will take place this year, and tickets will go on sale on Friday 3rd November at noon.
However, ticket costs are rising this year, to £20 per person.
When the charge was introduced in 2014, it was set at just £10 and was unchanged until 2019. After the pandemic, the price rose to £15 in 2021 and 2022. Now it’s £20 per person.
When tickets go on sale next Friday (3rd Nov), you can buy up to four tickets, and the named buyer of the tickets may be asked to provide ID on the night to show that the tickets haven’t been resold.
There are six viewing areas – Blue, Red, Pink, Green, White and the Orange (Accessible Viewing Area). If you’re coming with friends, be sure to book the same viewing area, as you can’t move between them.
