It is best to get to this area as early as possible as countless others will surely be vying for the prime viewing spots.

Victoria Embankment – The Victoria Embankment is an ideal location to wait for the Big Ben to strike midnight, and runs from Westminster Bridge to Blackfriars Bridge. You will enjoy some of the best Thames views from the riverside, with an unobstructed view of the London Eye.

Boat Parties at the Victoria Embankment – Greet the New Year in a different way – while on a boat party along the River Thames! Boat parties sail from the Embankment Pier, providing guests with a novel way to say farewell to 2013, and welcome 2014 as breathtaking fireworks light up the London skyline.
