Hubby and I fulfilled one of our long held dreams this year, to watch London’s New Years Eve fireworks by the Thames.
We did suffer for our art, our timed tickets let us in between 7.00 p.m and 9.30 p.m. and although I wanted to test the system and get there quite a bit later, hubby wanted to stick to the rules, and he won. So we were on our feet for over four hours , which we felt. But the atmosphere was wonderful and now we can say, ‘yep, done that’.
As you can see, even with only 100 thousand ticket holders, it was very crowded.
The shard had moving lights and an illuminated count down.
The fireworks began.
And just so that you too can get a flavour of it.
