I would advise to stay away from the Hoe! They have fairground rides etc. You can view the fireworks from mountbatton, devils point or jennycliff. Wherever you choose to go, get there early, it gets very busy x

What a lovely thing to do, and yes the Hoe is well lighted and very safe for cycling as there are various traffic calming measures preventing the lunatics from spoiling your time there. Enjoy!
