New Year's Eve in London 2011 - 2012

Christmas in London is over but we've still got New Year's Eve before the city returns to normal. Let Boutique London Lets take all the stress out of planning the big night.

First things first, don't miss the fireworks on the river – the London eye lights up like a Catherine Wheel and early birds get to line the bridges, like Waterloo Bridge, Westminster Bridge and Blackfriars Bridge to get great vantage points. If you're staying in our Southwark apartments, Southwark Penthouse, Waterloo apartments or Riverside apartments or Thamesview apartments, you're in luck as you can just stroll down to the South Bank.

Backtracking a little, you'll want a spot of dinner and it doesn't have to cost the earth, even on New Year's Eve. Time Out London still has a few bargains up its sleeve for New Year's Eve 2011/2012 dining – check out their restaurant offers and list of great places that'll be open for eating and drinking on New Year's Day.

For a bit more glamour, try a masquerade ball with two course meal at Balls Brothers, Victoria or a Vegas casino themed night at Zebranos in Greek Street, Soho. Both offer decent entry prices and a nice mix of ages and groups. 

Finally, before you hail that cab remember that TFL makes all bus, tube and DLR journeys free from 23.45 to 04.30 on the big night – find more details here. There'll be a crush just after midnight, particularly around central stations like Piccadilly Circus, but you can always walk along to the next one and the atmosphere is brilliant.
