Where to see bonfire night fireworks displays in London 2021
What time are Guy Fawkes fireworks in North, East, South and West London and the surrounding area
After the damp squib of Bonfire Night 2020, we're all in the mood to watch pretty lights explode above our heads. And if you want to bathe next to the warmth of a bonfire in London, you're well catered for.
From traditional firework extravaganzas to happening cultural events, there's plenty on offer if you're hunting for a Bonfire Night to remember. There are fewer displays this year, so make sure to book your tickets far in advance before they sell out.
As ever with event round-ups like this, covid could change the scheduling listed below. Please check official sites for the most up to date information before you make your trip.
Alexandra Palace Fireworks Festival
The most expansive fireworks festival in London is returning to Alexandra Park and offering the same epic range of events, including a night of live music, fairground rides, massive bonfires, street food and drinks, film screenings in a Victorian theatre, the UK's largest German bier festival, sets from high profile DJs, a gorgeous ice rink and, of course, an iconic fireworks display. Taking place on Friday 5 and Saturday 6 November, this is quite literally the biggest display in the whole of the UK.
Tickets for Alexandra Palace Fireworks Festival are available from See Tickets. Gates will open at 4pm.
Wimbledon Park Firework Display
After a year out, the Wimbledon Park Firework Display is returning with a bang on Friday 5 and Saturday 6 November.
