It’s time to start plotting how we shall remember the downfall of a papist plot, and watch the skies over London explode with fireworks. And in a few locations, the display’s still include the traditional bonfire as well.

Normally, it’s possible to get a whole weekend of firework displays in across London, but this year, because the 5th November is a Sunday, most venues are putting on their bonfire night displays on the Saturday evening, although a small handful are being nice and running displays on the Friday or Sunday.

In fact, the best firework display might be to find somewhere high on the edge of London on Saturday evening and watch all of them at once.

  1. Helen Howard says:

    Hi we’re staying at Civil Service Club and we wondered if you could advise a venue nearby. I think Battersea is the only one. But would we be better off watching from the Embankment. I appreciate any advice. Thank you.

  2. Gerry says:

    The link to the Central London event on 3 November is broken. Presumably it should be

    It makes no mention that ‘Adults must be accompanied by children’, nor that ‘Children must be accompanied by adults’.

  3. Michael says:

    The link from Waltham Forest take you to the Wanstead one

  4. Samantha says:

    Kempton Park tickets are here, although strictly speaking it’s in Surrey not London being about 800 yds from the boundary. In previous years it has been organised by the Staines Round Table but not sure about this year

  5. Mary says:

    Clissold Park display on Saturday run by Hackney Council is not listed either under Stoke Newington or Hackney.
    The Victoria Park display poster says there are food and drink stalls but not mentioned in list.
