Our guide to the best places to get your fix of fireworks across the capital this Bonfire Night
Our top tips for where to get your fix of pyromania this bonfire night
Remember, remember the 5th of November, with gunpowder, treason and plot…
Saturday 4th November – Battersea Park
Just a short trot south and over the river from The Kensington, the annual Battersea Park Fireworks is renowned across the capital as the biggest display of the weekend. With everything from food vendors and pop-up bars to market stalls, gates open at 6pm just in time for everyone to grab something tasty and settle in for the pre-show entertainment. The bonfire is lit at 7.30pm before the fireworks begin at 8pm. This year’s epic show is being run by the award-winning Jubilee Fireworks for a breathtaking 22-minute display set to music inspired by this year’s theme “Power”.
Bonfire Night Party @ The Roof Gardens
Saturday 4th November – Kensington Roof Gardens
The Roof Gardens on Kensington High Street is taking Bonfire Night to stylish new heights for their annual ‘Firework Spectacular’. Ticket holders are invited to the famous acre of roof terrace laid with themed gardens for an evening of BBQ and cocktails complete with a magnificent fireworks display in the Spanish Garden to light up the skies of west London.
Coram’s Fields Fireworks
Friday3rd November – Coram’s Fields
A stone’s throw from The Bloomsbury, Coram’s Fields will once again be hosting their annual family-friendly fireworks festivities. Just behind the famous Foundling Hospital, founded by the Coram’s Fields’ famous namesake Thomas Coram, the event will kick off with fairground rides from 3.30pm, leading up to the main event, the fireworks display at 5pm.
Cleveland Square Fireworks
Sunday 5th November – Cleveland Square
Head west from The Marylebone and along the northern edge of Hyde Park to find Cleveland Square, the venue for another of our favourite Guy Fawkes Night events. The square will play host to their usual BIG bonfire, BBQ, light show, and of course a fireworks ceremony set to music. The Cleveland Square Residents Association will even be serving their own special recipe mulled wine (it sells out every year!). Head on over for the 6pm kick off to experience an authentic London bonfire night.
