Lambeth Fireworks

Brockwell Park, Norwood Road, London, SE24 0PA

Tube: Brixton Station

 

Dates: 04th November 2017

 

In 2017 the annual Lambeth Fireworks display, run by Westworth Kemp at Brockwell Park, takes on 'A Night at the Movies' theme with quotes and soundtracks from cult, classic and blockbuster movies. As well as the main event - a 20 minute fireworks display to music from the most-loved movies of the past six decades - there's live entertainment, music, funfair rides and refreshments. Among more than 20 food traders you'll find BBQ at Porky's, hotdogs from Gut Wurst, wood fired pizzas from Dough & Deer, steak courtesy of POP Brixton favourites 28 Well Hung and mac 'n' cheese from Mac to the Future. NOTE: this event is smaller than in previous years and with no tickets on sale on the night you're advised to buy yours early to avoid disappointment - with lower early bird prices, it's cheaper too.

 
 
 

Hammersmith and Fulham Fireworks

Bishops Park, Bishop's Avenue, London, SW6 6SX

Tube: Putney Bridge Station

 

Dates: Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th November 2017

 

The Fulham Fireworks fiesta at Bishops Park is the west London warm-up to Saturday's Bonfire Night celebrations at Ravenscourt Park. Both events offer both a children's fireworks display and one for the adults, culminating in a display choreographed to music. Further fun can be found at the on-site funfair and food stalls, making it the perfect venue for young families to enjoy the festivities. You won't be allowed to bring your own alcohol or sparklers so leave them at home and get there on time - you can't enter the park once the display has started.

 
 
 

Alexandra Palace Fireworks Festival

Alexandra Palace, Alexandra Palace Way, Wood Green, London, N22 7AY

Tube: Bounds Green Station

 

Dates: Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th November 2017

 

Perched up high above North London with panoramic views across the city, Alexandra Palace is a great place to watch the spectacular display of fireworks set off in the grounds of the iconic building. But there's plenty more to do besides. Proving to be incredibly popular in previous years, the festival is going to be a two-day affair once again in 2017, with both days offering food and drink stalls, a bonfire, ice skating and a family friendly area with funfair rides and more. There's also an adults-only German Bier Festival inside (at an extra cost) with Bavarian waitresses serving premium German biers and traditional food until 11pm. The bonfire will be lit at 7pm on the Friday and 6pm on Saturday with the main explosive event following at 9pm on Friday and 8pm on Saturday.

 
 
 

Blackheath Fireworks

Blackheath Common, Shooters Hill Road, London, SE3 0UA

Tube: New Cross Station (East London line closed. Bus service operates)

 

Dates: Saturday 4th November 2017

 

The Lewisham skyline will be set ablaze this year with the Blackheath Fireworks Display, one of the biggest free community displays in London, attracting over 80,000 people. Despite the display's popularity, the 'village' atmosphere of Blackheath is sure to mean there'll be a family-friendly vibe. Besides the fireworks, there is also a funfair from 12 noon, food stalls and bars from 5pm. Visitors are advised not drive to this event: a chronic lack of parking will mean you won't get within a mile of the place in your car, so better get a train or bus and avoid the stress - the nearest station is Blackheath Railway Station while it's around a 10-minute walk to the heath from Lewisham Railway Station. Alternatively, you can see the fireworks from the bottom of the Isle of Dogs, with Greenwich lit up in the foreground, making for some great photo opportunities.

 
 
 

Battersea Park Fireworks

Battersea Park, Albert Bridge Road, Battersea Park, London, SW11 4NJ

Tube: Sloane Square Station

 

Dates: Saturday 4th November 2017

 

With its beautiful riverside setting Battersea Park hosts arguably the biggest and best display south of the river. The annual feel-good fireworks display returns to Battersea Park on Saturday 4th November for a night of pyrotechnic pizzazz on the theme of 'Power'. Fireworks will be set off to music chosen to fit the theme for a striking 22-minute display. Street food and drink stalls are on site to get you in the Bonfire Night spirit and the kids will love all the glow-in-the-dark trinkets on sale. Crowds often reach 50,000, give or take a couple of thousand, so get there early and remember to wrap up warm! If you don't want to pay and don't mind missing out on the accompanying music, this display can be seen from miles around and looks particularly lovely reflected in the water from the north side of the Thames in Chelsea.

 
 
 
 

Wimbledon Park Fireworks

Wimbledon Park, Wimbledon Park, London, SW19 7HX

Tube: Wimbledon Park Station

 

Dates: Saturday 4th November 2017

 

This fireworks extravaganza at Wimbledon Park is the first of two Guy Fawkes events taking place in Merton this year, with the second happening on 5th November at Morden Park. At both venues there are two shows - one themed 'Disney' for children and a second themed 'Festival Headliners' for adults. Both Morden Park and Wimbledon Park are spectacular settings for firework displays, with clear, unobstructed views. A jaunt around the stalls and fairground rides will warm you up and keep the kids interested before the explosive grand finale.

 
 
 

Crystal Palace Fireworks

Crystal Palace Park, Thicket Road, Penge, London, SE20 8DT

Tube: Denmark Hill Station

 

Dates: Sunday 5th November 2017

 

Crystal Palace Park has been the site of Fireworks displays for 150 years and this year the long tradition continues as Bonfire Night is marked with two magnificent fireworks shows - one quieter event for children followed by a larger (and louder) display for adults at 8.30pm, set to last approximately 25 minutes. In addition to the fireworks displays there are stalls selling food and drink. We think C.T. Brock of the Brock's firework company who first set off fireworks at Crystal Palace Park in 1865 with a "Grand Competition of Pyrotechnists" would be happy that the tradition he started continues today. The consumption of alcohol and personal use of fireworks is strictly prohibited at this event, and no dogs are permitted (except assistance dogs).

The ArcelorMittal Orbit

See numerous firework displays from the Orbit's viewing platform.

ArcelorMittal Orbit, Olympic Park, Stratford, London, E20 2ST

Tube: Stratford Station

 

Dates: Sunday 5th November 2017

 

Providing the chance to enjoy more than just one firework display, the ArcelorMittal Orbit is opening its door late-night this Bonfire Night for a chance to see the London sky light up from its viewing platform. Guests will be able to enjoy a glass of prosecco or a beer while they watch fireworks exploding across the city - the platform has floor to ceiling windows and provides views of up to 20 miles away so you can guarantee some spectacular sightings. There will also be the chance to add some thrill to your evening with a ride on The Slide, which is the world's longest and tallest tunnel slide.

 
 
 

The Lord Mayor's Show

Mansion House, City of, London, EC4N 8BH

Tube: Bank Station , Cannon Street Station, Mansion House Station, Monument Station

 

Dates: Saturday 11th November 2017

 

The annual Lord Mayor's Show begins with a river pageant and takes over the streets of London as a parade of over 6,000 people, military marching bands and floats surround a gilded State Coach carrying the newly elected Lord Mayor. It's a spectacle and celebration that goes back 800 years and, just as he did all those years ago, the Mayor travels by river, from Westminster to HMS President in the Gloriana accompanied by a flotilla of 24 traditional Thames boats. It's a wonderful day of pomp and pageantry. The street procession starts at 11am with an RAF flypast and goes on until about 2.30pm, covering the whole area between Bank and Aldwych with the mayor departing from Mansion House for the Royal Courts of Justice where he/she takes an oath of allegiance to the Queen. For a grand finale there's one of London's most impressive fireworks displays at 5.15pm, set off from a barge moored in the Thames between Blackfriars and Waterloo Bridges. The best vantage points to watch from tend to be around Embankment and Gabriel's Wharf.
