Celebrate New Year on Primrose Hill

As long as you go along with an open mind about watching fireworks that look a lot further away than they do on the telly, there's always a good atmosphere up on Primrose Hill at New Year, where an elevation of 256 feet offers panoramic views to Westminster to the south and any other ad hoc displays that might be taking place around London.

The crowds here are much thinner than in the very centre of town - or at least they were when your author last saw in the New Year 2009 atop the Hill - so there's much less jostling and other crowd-based annoyances likely to happen but still enough people to make it feel festive. Plus at the end of the evening you can just roll down the hill to largely-uncrowded St John's Wood or Chalk Farm tube stations and catch the free tube home.
