If you don't have a ticket to the fireworks in London on New Year's Eve 2014, it's now too late to get one.
But never fear, you can still see the fireworks: there are a few locations outside the ticketed area where you should be able to see the display
Nearest tube: Chalk Farm
Nearest tube: Wood Green
A bit of a slog to get up and with a slightly restricted line of sight to the centre, but probably one of the best places to see private displays scattered around London if you’re not that interested in the main show.
Nearest tube: Vauxhall or Pimlico
Nearest tube: Bank/Monument
Just outside the ticketed zone, so expect very heavy crowds, but should provide a good view, especially if you’re fall. Also try Cannon Street around the corner, which will be equally rammed.
Nearest tube: Hampstead Heath, Gospel Oak, or Belsize Park
Head for Parliament Hill for the best view on the Heath. The view of the city is excellent; fireworks will be small as they are far away.
Nearest tube: Mansion House
On a normal day Tower Bridge is impassable due to tourists. The railings next to the roadway are probably going to make for an interesting health and safety hazard with heavy crowds. If you get a view it’ll be great, though.
Nearest tube: Wherever you like
Always an option if you don’t fancy standing outside needing a piss.
Alternatively, just watch last year’s fireworks on YouTube and go to a party.
