Remember remember the fifth of November

Gunpowder, treason and plot.

I see no reason why gunpowder, treason

Should ever be forgot...

We know that today is Halloween and Bonfire Night is not until next week, but the truth is, most of the fireworks displays in London will happen before the big day. We've already told you about the display on Clapham Common and we wouldn't want you to miss out on the rest of the action so here are the best of the fireworks displays London has to offer.

Morden Park: Twice the fun to be had here as there are two displays on Saturday November 3rd. The first is at 5.15pm and especially themed for kids. The 2nd is longer, most spectacular and promises to be lots of fun.

Blackheath Common: Londonist's favourite and arguably the best display of the bunch. Always showy and it appears just the right length so frostbite doesn't set in. This year you can see the sparkly stuff from 7.30pm on Saturday 3rd November.

Battersea Park: We've been promised Battersea is going to have a pretty amazing display on Saturday. They better be good, it'll cost you a fiver to watch them. If you're local, it's probably best to stand just outside of the park (Albert Bridge road entrance) and watch the for free. The bonfire is being lit at 7.30 and the display starts at eight.

Alexandra Palace: With most of the displays being held south, Alexandra Palace solves the problem for you northerners. Get there for the show to start at 7.30 (yes, again on Saturday) and get ready to go ooooooooh and ahhhhhhh!

There are loads of displays all over London. Check out your local park or common to see what else is happening.

Whilst fireworks are lots of fun, they can be dangerous. Make sure you wear gloves when playing with sparklers and keep an eye out for straying hedgehogs.
