Grab your sparklers and mulled wine and venture down to one of these stunning locations to watch the firework displays in London this weekend. 

Bang! Pop! Wizz! No, we’re not eating a bowl of Rice Krispies, we’re just getting excited about the sparkliest, most dazzling evening of the year: Bonfire Night.

And there really are so many reasons to get excited. The opportunity to wear a scarf and don your new autumnal boots, the smell of hot dogs in the air and the general cosiness of it all make Bonfire Night one of the most atmospheric occasions of the season.
