Where else can you watch the London fireworks?
The Evening Standard highlighted some of the best spots in the capital to catch all the firework action, including Cannon Street and Primrose Hill.
There is also the Millenium Bridge and Southwark Bridge, not to mention Vauxhall Bridge and Lambeth Bridge.
Greenwich Park also offers spectacular views of the proceedings, as does Alexandra Palace and Hampstead Heath.
