Best London fireworks displays for Guy Fawkes night 2018 date nights

When Guy Fawkes intent on blowing up the Houses of Parliament he probably didn't expect that the annual celebration of his failed gunpowder plot would establish one of the most enduring date nights of all times.

As London's skies prepare to be filled with sparkles, we've rounded up some of the best locations for a flame-hot November date night in the capital. 


Arguably the biggest fireworks event in the big smoke, this is a two day bonanza that never fails to disappoint. The display kicks off at 9pm on both Friday 2nd and and Saturday 3rd November, but there's much more besides to keep you entertained: an ice rink, beer garden and live music. Book tickets here.


What's better than a ginormous fireworks display set to music? Two ginormous fireworks displays set to music. The first bangs begin at 6.45pm on Saturday 3rd, with a Disney inspired soundtrack. The second, at 8pm on the same evening, will coordinate bangs and sparkles with the best of music from the 80s through to the modern day. Book tickets here.


This all day, free event kicks off at noon on Saturday 3rd November with a traditional fun fair. A food market will pop up on the common at 5pm and from 8pm onwards the skies above will be filled with dazzling pyrotechnics. No booking required. 


The annual display at Battersea Park, scheduled for Saturday 3rd November this year, is one of the most legendary in the capital. A stunningly epic set, often timed to music, never fails to wow the crowds who pack into the South London parkland to enjoy the show. The queues to the bar can get long so if you fancy some sparkles with you fireworks, bring your own Prosecco in a plastic cup (glass is forbidden). Book tickets here.
