We'll be in London November 3-8. Guy Fawkes Day is Sunday, November 5. Any suggestions for what to do, or not to do?
Good advice 😂😂
There is a big procession through the town, and there are a number of bonfires by the many bonfire society's.
Check out YouTube and and search for Lewes bonfire night. Prepare to get there early as the roads are closed and it gets very busy. Otherwise as someone else suggested, most of the bigger and decent events are in the suburbs of a London and in the towns. Normally events are held on the nearest Saturday close to 5th November. Lewes (East Sussex) is always on 5th.Edited: 2:11 am, September 20, 2017
Ally Pally - you can watch other firework do's all over London:)
Seems to be on the 3 and 4th though so you could well do GF, three nights running with a bit of planning:)
A few years ago, due to bad weather, the fireworks in many places were moved a day, or so, to the weekend then. We happened to be dining at Galvin @ Windows, and had a grand view of dozens of displays to the north of Mayfair. Tables around us had wonderful views to the west, and to the south. Ended up spending more time looking out over the city, than focusing on our beautiful, and excellent food. A spot of nasty weather worked to our advantage that year.
If one did not want to be "in the center of things," perhaps a "view" dinner?
