Where To Watch Fireworks On Bonfire Night 2018 In London

We don't want to brag, but London's fireworks are among the best in the country. This year's offerings range from council displays to children’s fireworks, ticketed-only events and fundraising conflagrations. In many cases there are also funfairs — and food to go with the fireworks. Here’s our guide to displays, across London.

Firework displays in north London: Alexandra Palace and Harrow

No half measures here then. From £8.50, book in advance. 2-3 November

HARROW: The theme for this year's Harrow fireworks display in Byron Park and fun day is: film.
