Celebrating the New Year in London is an event. The city will be totally saturated for one night, including its famous fireworks shot from the Big Ben. Londoners and tourists will mix to celebrate the New Year in the streets, before going to the bars and of course the nightclubs.
Start the year in style in London!
The hotels have been chosen to suit all possible budgets. They are all ideally close to the nightlife of the city. Travel in the city is very easy, especially by the metro (which operates 24 hours a day) or the high number of taxis.
You have the choice to go to London via Bus (OuiBus) or by plane.
After admiring this magnificent fireworks, which is also the attraction of the evening, you will go to London's neighborhoods, to bars and nightclubs! Among the most popular nightspots, there is undoubtedly the legendary Ministry of Sound, a true icon of the English and world nightlife. Other venues include: Fabric, Egg London, Tiger Tiger London, Picadilly Institute, DSTRKT London (very hip), and Scala Club. You'll understand, there's plenty to do in London!
The best months to visit London are the summer months, from June to September, but you'll be able to visit the London capital all year long. The city is also very famous for its New Year's Eve. There is an average of fifteen days of rain per month (that's one day out of two, yes) so do not necessarily expect to have 4 days of good weather when you go there. The average temperature varies between 3 ° / 11 ° in winter and 13 ° / 22 ° in summer. You now understand that to warm up, better push the door of the innumerable bars and pubs of London rather than to wait for the sun!
The English speak English. Like all natives, they will tend to talk fast with a rather pretty British accent in London. So do not hesitate to play the French Tourist and ask them to speak a little slower if you have trouble understanding them. Apart from the business districts, they will usually be ready to give you a hand if you are lost with your subway map.
The currency in London is the British Pound or GBP for Great Britain Pound (symbol: £). € 1 equals approximately £ 0.90 (rate of the pound at the beginning of September 2018). This is obviously the only currency with which you can pay for your purchases in London (put your euros and dollars back in your pocket, we saw them). You will be able to easily change money before your departure at your bank or in a foreign exchange counter, or do it directly on the spot according to the agreements that you have with your bank, either by taking cash with you, then going to a currency exchange counter, either by withdrawing money with your credit card directly from an ATM.
