New Year's Eve is a night of options. Dinners, fireworks, parties, dancing and more all take place across the capital each December, making it hard to pick just one way to see in the new year. But what if there was an event that could combine all these experiences into one special extravaganza? Well, now there is...
Welcome to The London New Year's Eve Ball, a Jules Verne-inspired evening that takes you around the world in 80 days, in one night. The decor transports you from the ornate temples of Japan one minute to the hanging gardens of Babylon the next, via an Orient Express bar — made from an authentic carriage with traditional seating inside. This is one evening that has it all...
The global theme stretches to the cuisine too. Canapés inspired by far-flung corners of the world greet you on arrival. They precede the delicious four-course banquet that dazzles the senses, as cirque performers, incredible entertainers and Chinese dragons conquer the stage between courses. All the while there's unlimited beer and wine to keep the evening buzzing.
Then comes the dancing. Big tunes arrive courtesy of an unbeatable DJ, to help you welcome the new year in style. If you're not into dancing, then maybe dodgems are more your scene? Hop in, and bump into your friends at top speed.
Then — at midnight — the party zooms back firmly to London, as you watch a live stream of the fireworks over the Thames. Afterwards, the bar stays open until 2.30am, so you can party on well into 2019. When it's finally home time, the team are there to help you on your way — there's a free shuttle bus heading to Victoria station.
