Alexandra Palace

Ally Pally’s annual firework display is uncancelably legendary. Not only is it a huge display, the views across the capital are nearly as stunning as the pyrotechnics.

Accompanying the fireworks, there’s a promised light show not to mention one of the biggest bonfires in London. And that’s not all.

The UK’s largest German Bier festival coincides with the celebrations, meaning you can enjoy beer and sausages to the display, all to the soundtrack of live DJ sets in the StrEATlife village.

Make the most of the experience with a few circuits of the ice rink before heading home.

When: Friday 3rd & Saturday 4th November
Where: Alexandra Palace Way, Muswell Hill, N22 7AY

Battersea Park

Pretty much the doyen of London fireworks displays, the whole of South West London eagerly anticipates the release of Battersea Park tickets.

This year the Wandsworth-based event is going ahead, with its Thames-side display generally regarded as one of the best in town. There will be fireworks held over two nights – Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th November.

The Saturday will kick off with a bonfire, followed by its usual stunning fireworks display starting at 8pm. Sunday is the more family-friendly event, complete with Bluey & Bingo shows and a kid’s disco. Fireworks will start at 7:10pm.

When: Saturday 4th November and Sunday 5th November
Where:
Battersea Park, Battersea, SW11 4NJ
Website:www.batterseaparkfireworks.com

Hammersmith & Fulham Bonfire Night

Something a little different… Boasting London’s first eco-friendly bonfire night will be Hammersmith & Fulham. Rather than shooting off fireworks into the sky, the two neighbourhoods will be celebrating Guy Fawkes Night with a giant laser light show, lighting up the city in a new way. 

Themed around ‘a night at the movies’, the experience will be soundtracked with scores from all of your favourite classic films. The display will be high-tech and multi-coloured, and provides a nice alternative to your usual firework night.

When: Friday 3rd & Saturday 4th November
Where: Ravenscourt Park, Hammersmith & Bishops Park, Fulham

Morden Park

There’s more to Morden than just the end of the Northern Line. Not least, Morden Park, the National Trust house and gardens and the 2023 bonfire venue.

Run as a twin event to Wimbledon Park’s display, like its sibling there will be two bonfires and fireworks, the first timed for and aimed at children and the second for the grown-ups.

Children and grownups alike will no doubt enjoy the funfair that’s going to be put on for the night along with food stalls and a bar, presumably all the same ones that were at Wimbledon Park the night before.

When: Sunday 5th November
Where: Morden Park, SM4 5QU

Beckenham Fireworks In The Park

Beckenham beckons with a family-friendly firework display that’s one of London’s best established – it’s been going since 1946.

Starting with a quieter display at 6pm for the kiddos, the main event’s at 7:45 and the professional fireworks display will light up South London.

Firework lovers can look forward to a range of food and drink stalls, from chicken naan wraps to jerk chicken, wood-fired pizza to Polish sausage hot dogs.

When: Saturday 4th November
Where: Croydon Road Recreation Ground, Croydon Road, Beckenham, BR3 3PR
