Remember, remember / The fifth of November

One of the most spectacular firework displays in London happens tonight!

The annual commemoration started with the events of 5 November 1605, when Guy Fawkes was arrested on a plot to explode the House of Lords. Having King James I survived the attempts on his life, people started lighting bonfires around London.

Each borough is free to organise their own event, which brings great variety and more chances to find the perfect spot to enjoy the evening. Some areas are extremely popular, with people arriving as early as 4pm to secure a nice place. Primrose Hill, for instance, holds a main advantage for admirers due to its particular location for being one of the highest points in London, providing a great view of the show.

If you live south of the river and would rather stay locally, Southwark Park (SE16 2PA), close to Bermondsey and Canada Water, and Wimbledon Park (SW19 7HU) are popular destinations as they arrange a special display for children before the grand finale.

Check your local council’s website before heading to the event to check specific requirements regarding times, food and drink allowance, pets and personal fireworks.
