London is a go-to destination for millions of travellers and fun-seekers all across the world, especially when the holidays come around. With the New Year on the horizon, people will be looking for exciting ways to celebrate in the capital.
Anyone booking a room at our hotels in Westbourne Terrace will find themselves at the centre of the city’s bustling entertainment district. If you’re hoping to try something new this year, kick your New Year off with a bang at the Park Grand Paddington Hotel with these unique activities and experiences.
When the clock strikes midnight on the final day of the year, the skies above London light up with an amazing display of colour. The New Year’s Eve firework displayed in the capital is like nothing you have ever seen and there’s no better way to watch it than by floating down the city’s famous waterway. Hop on a boat cruise and make your way along the Thames as you enjoy a drink and laugh along with friends and loved ones. Anyone heading to the Park Grand Paddington Hotel this season will not want to miss out on this unique opportunity.
During the New Year period, London hosts hundreds of parties and events that will attract people from all corners of the world. If you’re struggling to think of somewhere to go during your time in the city or you don’t want to spend the evening at the same old bars and clubs, the Prohibition Party offers a fun and unique alternative. Transport yourself back to the 1920s when alcohol was illegal but it didn’t stop anyone from having a good time. In true underground style, the location is being kept secret but you can still book your tickets now and get your glad rags ready for an amazing night.
Natural History Museum
The idea of exploring a museum full of thousand-year-old relics may not seem like the most thrilling way to spend New Year’s Eve but this is the one time of year that the beautiful house of history turns into a party palace. This year, the Natural History Museum will be hosting an Under the Sea party that will transform the halls of the museum into dancefloors, giving excited party-goers the chance to dance the night away. This is a unique opportunity for you to try something different and celebrate the dawn of a new year while immersing yourself in the history hidden away at London’s best museum.
Get dressed up in your finest suit or gown and enjoy an elegant evening of drinking and socialising just like the aristocrats of Italy did hundreds of years ago. This year, Lee Valley will be hosting a masquerade ball which promises to be one of the most exciting events in the city. The thrill of putting on a mask and socialising with others is a tradition that goes way back and this New Year’s Eve you can take part in the unique experience in the heart of London. Be sure to book ahead to confirm your space.
