Travelling to London for New Years Eve

When you have a special occasion coming up, hiring a coach to London is the most cost effective and environmentally friendly method of transport, as well as being easy and straightforward with our huge range of vehicles and modern booking systems.

And there is no greater special occasion than New Years Eve in London, and of course it's without doubt one of the busiest times of the year for London Coach hire, so get your booking organised as soon as possible.

No more worrying about whether all of your extended network of friends will arrive in time for the New Years Eve chimes as we can pick the entire party up with your own special event coach or minibus from several pick up points if that's what you need.

So we invite you to kick start the celebrations with us as we take a look at travelling to London for New Years Eve.

Where and How

After a two-year absence due to the pandemic and its accompanying lockdown restrictions, London’s New Year’s Eve celebrations on the banks of the river Thames return to loudly ring in 2023 for the first time since 2019.

The world famous Big Ben’s chimes will sound at midnight and then the UK’s biggest annual display of fireworks will commence.

Being part of this experience is magical and an everlasting memory, but getting around London on New Year's Eve can be tricky as well as getting into the capital or your hotel.

That's why so many revellers choose coach hire or mini bus hire in London so that you miss nothing of the celebrations.

Although London has a great transport network, public transport is affected on New Year's Eve due to the nature of the event and the police and city authorities need to safely manage the large numbers of people attending the celebrations. It is often the case that stations need to close temporarily at any time during the day, or night to ensure that there is no chance of crush or crowd issues.

But you put those worries to one side as once you have finished celebrating you can head off to meet your London coach hire driver at a prearranged point, and quickly be in the warm and heading home or to your hotel.

Why London

New Year's Eve in London offers a stunning wide range of parties and events from 1940’s blitz and Gatsby themed parties to the latest techno music, theatre plays, rooftop parties, Thames cruises and the glittering Bars, Pubs and Clubs of the west end.

There really is something for everyone and London will not fail to deliver the New Year's Eve celebration that you want, whether it's quiet and refined or full of noise, lights and dazzle.

If you want to see the New Year in and then head off to the Night Clubs, simply tell us your itinerary when you book your coach hire in London and your driver will be waiting for you at each pick up point.

And of course at midnight there are the world famous fireworks, watched by millions every year.

This fireworks extravaganza takes place along the banks of the River Thames, near the famous London Eye and on previous New Years Eves has attracted more than 250,000 people.

There are official viewing areas along the Thames but if you want a good spot get there early as they are normally full up to capacity a good three hours before the fireworks begin. But it can be a great experience enjoying the build up and new friends are often made as you join those around you in a drink or two.

At midnight the noise rises to a crescendo as everyone awaits the Big Ben 'bongs' to signal the New Year as the firework display begins. The great news is that the fireworks are completely free to attend, just hire a minibus for the family and off you go.

But for many people the fun does not stop there, as once you have had breakfast and a coffee to clear the cobwebs away from last nights partying, there is London's annual New Year's Day Parade to be enjoyed so your coach hire driver will be waiting to whisk you off to watch this amazing spectacle that features more than 10,000 performers. The colourful carnival parade sees the artists performing acrobatics and dances in wonderful colourful costumes as well as marching bands and vintage vehicles on display.

And to finally top off your London New Years experience, there are the famous New Years Day Sales. Book this as part of your coach hire in London itinerary for easy and comfortable travel as well as a pre arranged bag drop meeting point.

Many of the top shopping destinations in London have New Year sales or January sales. Make the most of this chance and shop your heart out.

With hiring a coach in London being so affordable, you have more cash to grab those bargains.
