Fireworks in London | Guy Fawkes Night 2019.

Thursday, September 19, 2019

Each year, London marks the historic moment when Guy Fawkes and his motley crew attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament and King James I in the Gunpowder Plot of 5 Novem-ber 1605 – the day became known as Guy Fawkes Day, or more commonly Bonfire Night.

Every November, bonfires are lit on which effigies known as “guys” are burned, while the skies are filled with colourful fireworks. It’s also a time to enjoy traditional Bonfire Night food and drink, alongside music, funfairs and family activities.

Southwark

Southwark's fireworks night draws in the crowds every year and is one of the largest displays in the city. With a setting along the south bank of the River Thames, food and drink and plenty of entertainment, it’s a great place to experience your first Bonfire Night fireworks display in London. Early booking is advised as tickets usually sell out in advance.
