The best places to see fireworks in London this weekend

4 November 2016

Make sure your weekend goes off with a bang.

There’s no better way to get ready for Autumn than by standing under a dark sky lit up in technicolour. We’ve created the ultimate guide to fireworks happening in London this weekend, whether you’re looking for a traditional display or something a little different. Fingers crossed for good weather and sparklers at the ready!
 
Alexandra Palace fireworks festival – Friday 4th-5th November
 
Experience an impressive fireworks display perched high above North London, with unrivalled views across the city. Over two days the festival will provide food stalls, a German bier festival and an ice skating rink. If that’s not enough for you, there will also be a Carnival of the Macabre, with a Day of the Dead parade of fire dancers and skeletons snaking its way through the palace, soundtracked by a New Orleans marching band.

Tickets are £11 for adults and £8.50 for children.
 
 
Wembley Park fireworks display – Sunday 6th November
 
This year Brent Council’s fireworks show is promising the ‘wow factor and one of London’s greatest choreographed displays’ at Wembley Park. Its mastermind, fireworks fanatic Brian Marshall, is known for taking part in a world record event that saw 60,000 rockets being launched at the same time in Plymouth, so we can expect an ambitious and impressive show.
 
This events is free!
 
 
Crystal Palace fireworks display – Saturday 5th November
 
See beautiful fireworks against the backdrop of Crystal Palace’s unique dinosaur sculptures. A fantastic option for children, the event offers two shows, one of which is designed to be quieter but with just as many majestic lights and colours.
 
Tickets are £7.50 for adults and £5.10 for children.
 
 
The Great Fire of London fireworks display - 6th November
 
If you didn’t manage to remember the 5th of November, amble down to the beautiful Victoria Park to see one of the largest fireworks displays in London. 350 years after ‘The Great Fire of London’ the East London sky will be lit up again with a festival of light and colour.
 
This event is free!
 
 
Clissold Park fireworks – Saturday 5th November
 
Does anything sound better than a Hackney pyromusical? Not only does this event at Hackney’s Clissold Park include a musical fireworks display, it also encourages visitors to unleash their wild side by dressing up for this years’ theme of animals.
 
Tickets are £8.50 for adults and £3.50 for children.
 
 
Morden Park fireworks display – Saturday 5th November
 
One of London's most popular displays, Morden Park fireworks offer unobstructed views in a beautiful park setting. There will be two performances: a magic-themed show created especially for children and a performance for everyone with an Around the World Theme, including music and fairground rides.
 
Tickets are £8 for adults and £6 for children.
