[Sunday 1st January 2012]
I guess technically the fireworks display in London started on January 1st, being on the stroke of Midnight. This year we secured a vantage point on Vauxhall Bridge, which gave us a clear view of the London Eye, albeit at a distance. Had I realised there were going to be fireworks launched out of Big Ben this year as well we would have stood on the South bank by Vauxhall Bridge - there's in fact almost a "beach" that some people were standing on, and I think that would have given a fairly good view.
In the daytime (the next day - now I've confused things by writing about what I'd normally put in the night before on the same day) we popped out to Harrod's. There seemed to be general confusion about which shops would or wouldn't be open, but this was more or less the only one that we were fairly sure would be.
