Many plan out their New Year’s Eve to stay at home, go out, or spend it in a whole different country! How Exciting! Every year since 2003, London has put on a firework show at the London Eye. This year, London is planning to do this a bit different for their Firework Show.
“The Organizers are planning to ticket this year’s event in order to reduce the number of people attending. This year, 100,000 tickets will be available to the public for top views of the display and, as the tourism board claims, a better experience”, according to an article featured on TravelAgentCentral.com.
The reason the Tourism Board is selling tickets and limiting the number of people who can purchase tickets is because every year the number of attendees seems to go up, which causes the area to be much more crowded than usual, exceeding the capacity.
The article also stated that, “The prime viewing areas have a capacity of 100,000 people, which means the majority of people wanting to watch the display do not get the best view, or are unable to access the areas altogether. The huge crowds also mean long delays leaving the area at the end of the evening as attendees make their way to the Tube, rail and other public transportation”.
The London Tourism Board is doing this to help people get the best view possible and to enjoy themselves without the overcrowding. The Tourism Board also reminds travelers and residents, if they miss out on purchasing a ticket or would like an alternative to enjoy New Year’s Eve while in London, there are many other ways to do so: local restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and TV never disappoints. This year, London has a lot planned out, not just for adults but for children as well: a parade, movies at theaters, and ice skating rinks!
Tickets will be on Sale Starting September 26, 2014. Tickets can be purchased up to 4 at a price of 10EURO. If you’re interested in planning a New Year’s Eve Trip to London and purchasing Tickets for the Firework Show, please let us know!
