Things to do in London: Bring in the new year with fireworks at the London Eye

Published: Wednesday 18th of November 2009

The London Eye will be at the centre of a double celebration at the end of December as it marks its ten year anniversary with a fireworks display on New Year's Eve.

The Mayor of London Boris Johnson said: "London will bring in 2010 with a bang, a glittering explosion across the midnight sky. We want to show to the world that we are looking forward to the future with the optimism and energy that characterises our capital and makes it the most exciting city on earth."

London transport, including the tube, over ground trains, trams and busses, will be running all night and will be free of charge between 23:45 GMT and 4:30 GMT.

Last year an estimated 500,000 people braved the winter weather to see the London Eye's lighting and fireworks display.

Space in viewing areas along the River Thames will be limited so those visiting London are advised to get to there early to ensure a good view of the display.
