Best of British - Firework Displays

3rd November 2014

Remember, remember, the fifth of November!

This week will see Britain light up in a display of blazing bonfires, spectacular sparklers and the whooshes and shrieks of fireworks that get bigger and better as each year goes by. Join us as we take you on a breath taking tour of the best Bonfire Night events that Britain has to offer!

Lord Mayor’s Fireworks, London

Although Bonfire Night technically falls on Wednesday, saving yourself for the Lord Mayor’s show on Saturday will be worth the wait. An 800 year old tradition that sees the city burst to life, from its pageant and processions to a display of pyrotechnics like no other. What’s more, it’s free to attend – just make your way to the banks of the Thames between Waterloo and Blackfriars Bridge for the best view. For more information, visit


Vikings and Firework Spectacular, Tutbury Castle, Staffordshire

Three nights of spectacular fireworks and the infamous Tutbury Vikings fighting under the November moonlight promise to give you a Bonfire Night to remember! Booking in advance is highly recommended as they usually sell out in no time at all – simply head online here to for times, prices and more information.


Glasgow Green Fireworks, Glasgow

Ohhh and ahhhh the night away at Scotland’s biggest organised fireworks display at Glasgow Green. A thirty minute long event with live bands, a funfair and some truly impressive laser displays! What’s more, it’s free! Head to the green from 4pm to make the most of the pre-show activities and a whole host of food and drink stalls. Visit here for more information.


Penrhos Beach, Holyhead, Anglesey

Another fantastic display hosted by Round Table, this stunning event takes place on Penrhos Beach in North Wales and really shouldn’t be missed. Take your pick from a great selection of food stalls offering everything from hot dogs and hog roast to cakes and treacle toffees. For just £3 each (children go free), you’re guaranteed a fantastic evening at a brilliantly affordable price. Visit here for more information.
