Best Places to Celebrate New Year
Londoners ring in the New Year as only they can, to the chiming of Big Ben at midnight. More than 250,000 people crowd the banks of the Thames and its numerous bridges to see the spectacular 10 minute lightshow and fireworks display, with the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament (also known as the Parliament of Westminster), and the new Shard among highlights of the urban scenery. The fun doesnt end there, though there are many after parties, and on New Years Day the streets of central London see a parade that features colorful floats, marching bands, costumed dancers, and a procession of the Queens horses.
