London Rooftops to watch the NYE fireworks from

Rise above the crowds this NYE.

Stuck in the middle of a crowd, nose about to drop off, desperate for a wee, view obscured by a pair of neon flashing head boppers – not this year. Enjoy the NYE fireworks from the comfort of your own rooftop, or jacuzzi if you’re going by this list.

The Union Warf, London
For those who can barely make it to midnight on NYE, we raise you this rooftop. Watch the fireworks from a horizontal position, no one’s judging here.

Regal Heights II, LondonSo, this rooftop couldn’t be mistaken for Radio Rooftop Bar, but it’s not a bad spot to watch the fireworks with friends.

The Ivory Tower, LondonAdmittedly, you’ll only be able to see fireworks going off directly above you (on account of the walls), but at least it’s private.

Palace View Penthouse, LondonThis little number might be low-key, but it has a killer location.

Russell the Great, LondonThe best way to convince your friends that you’re cool and cultured? With an edgy surrealist mural, of course.

The High View, LondonWith that view, there are bound to be a few firework displays to pit against each other.

Style and Substance, LondonWe realise this isn’t technically a rooftop, but it is the perfect way to enjoy fireworks without freezing your feet off.

From the Flute, London
You won’t have to drag yourself and your food baby far to watch the fireworks after dinner from this rooftop. Ideal scenario.

Peter the Great, LondonThe view could be worse, we suppose.

High Holborn, LondonFinally, a bit of greenery. A few potted plants isn’t too much of an ask, is it?

The Western Perchoir, LondonNYE jacuzzi party anyone? Don’t mind if we do.
