Unless you acted quick to secure your £10 ticket to watch the New Year’s Eve fireworks, a new rule this year in London, then you’ll be better off snuggling up in your toasty warm London Perfect apartment rental and watching the big show on TV while making a toast with your family and friends. Start your New Year right with a cozy breakfast at home and then head out to catch the fun New Year’s Day Parade in London! This extravagant parade hits the streets of London starting at the Ritz on Piccadilly and passing through Piccadilly Circus, Lower Regent Street, Pall Mall, Trafalgar Square, Whitehall and passing by Big Ben. So there are lots of different places to catch the action! With over 8,500 performers from 20 different countries, you’ll even have the chance to see some American-style marching bands and performances since many bands from the USA come for the parade.
The parade kicks off at 12pm on New Year’s Day, but you’ll want to pick your spot early to make sure to get a good view. Visit the London New Year’s Day Parade website for more details. However you celebrate the start of 2015, we wish you a peaceful holiday time and wonderful year to come … to London!
