The Most Romantic Ways to Celebrate New Year's Eve in London

December 20, 2021
More often than not, New Year's Eve celebrations include partying, drinking loud music, dancing crowds, and more. These are all far from a romantic setting, aren't they? Especially in a city like London where the nightlife scene is alive and well. If you're here on New Year's Eve, is it possible to celebrate the holiday in a romantic way? The answer is yes, it is. Don't let all the noise and crowds fool you! You can still welcome the new year with your special someone in a totally romantic way. Here are a few good ideas as to how!

The Most Romantic Ways to Celebrate New Year's Eve in London


UPDATE: Due to the Omicron variant of Covid-19, many of the events listed in this article have been canceled. Please be advised.


Watch The Fireworks at The London Eye

The famous London Eye observation wheel is already one of the must-see and must-try attractions in the city but wait until it's New Year's! Although you can't ride the wheel yourself on New Year's Eve—they only stay open until 3:00 (15:00) pm every December 31st—you can still watch the magnificent fireworks display that goes off right as the clock strikes twelve. It's the most iconic show of its kind every year, so much so that it's even televised all around the world. Imagine seeing all the splendor with your significant other at a nearby spot, away from the crowds on the streets.

Go on a Cruise on River Thames

Going on a cruise is always romantic no matter where you are. But going on a cruise along the famous River Thames in London on New Year's Eve? It'll almost feel as if you're on your honeymoon again. Since many of the streets and districts of London would probably be crowded due to the holiday, you won't find that many people sailing along the river around midnight. And as you float further and further away from the bright skyscrapers and lit-up avenues, the fireworks displays would look even brighter and more spectacular too.

Attend a Masquerade Party

Admit it: there's something so mysterious, alluring, and downright sexy about attending a masquerade party. Getting lost in the opulence of it all, concealing your identity, and being the only one to recognize your partner just by their eyes. Gives you goosebumps just reading about it, doesn't it? Well, this is the sort of mystical New Year's Eve celebration you can expect if you go to the London Hilton on Park Lane on the night of December 31st. Every year, VooDoo Entertainment hosts its annual New Year's Eve masquerade party in this famous hotel to invoke a bit of glamour, mystery, and of course, romance to welcome the new year!

Experience a Prohibition Party

If you're still up to wear something extravagant for your New Year's Eve celebration in London, then head on over to Mr. White’s Leicester Square for their annual 'Prohibition Party.' Dress to the nines in your latest 1920s garb—spiffy suits for the gents and flapper frocks for the ladies—and party like it's the 'Roaring 20s' all over again. Complete with delicious food, vintage decor, and jazz music to boot, you and your partner will feel like you traveled back in time; back to the days of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Josephine Baker, and more. It's a romantically retro adventure you won't soon forget!

Dance in The Rivoli Ballroom

What's more romantic than dancing in a grand ballroom on New Year's Eve? If you feel like you want to move about and shake and shimmy as the new year starts, you can always head on over to the Rivoli Bedroom and dance the night away. The hotspot's annual New Year's Eve Gala Ball is just as fun and fabulous as it sounds, complete with great music and bars filled with popping bottles of champagne. This is yet another New Year's Eve celebration that provides London's nostalgic charm but in a much more modern way compared to the previously mentioned events.

Indulge in a Chocolate Cocktail

Did you know that chocolate is actually an aphrodisiac? The more you indulge in it, the more you get into the mood. And what more if you enjoy via delicious cocktail? Now that will definitely have you feeling hot and heavy all night long. If you're up for this sort of romantic New Year's Eve celebration in London, then look no further than The Chocolate Cocktail Club on St. John street. Just as its name says, this place is all about the cocoa-induced drinks, each sweeter than the next. If you end the past year here, who knows how you'll end up in the next morning, the first for the new year!

Relax in a Pub

Now, if you're up for a drink but you can do away with the chocolate, you can always head to a nearby pub instead. And the quieter it is, the better! It's more than likely that many locals and tourists alike are probably heading off to trendy bars—the kinds James Bond would go to—and nightclubs than old-fashioned pubs. This, in turn, makes these nostalgia-inducing establishments quieter during the holiday. If it's just you and your special someone drinking away, wouldn't that make for a romantic end of your year, right? Who knows? You might even get to have a heart-to-heart talk while you chug down pints of beer!

Enjoy a Staycation

And finally, when all else fails, just go on a staycation! Head to the nearest luxury hotel, book a spa day, and come midnight, order a New Year's Eve feast for room service and pop open a bottle of champagne while you're still in your bathrobes. Doesn't that sound so luxurious? Going out in London during this holiday is all well and good, but there's no beating spending quality time with your special someone, just the two of you, in a first-class accommodation. You'll start the new year feeling fresh and new come morning!
