Make your Bonfire Night go with a bang! Celebrate the 5th November in style, from family-friendly fireworks to full-on pyrotechnic festivals.
Pick an event near you – or find one further afield worth travelling to – and let us take you there in comfort. Just remember to wrap up warm, and never return to a firework once it’s been lit…
London fireworks displays
Leave it to London – home of the original Bonfire Night, when Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament in 1605 – to showcase some of the UK’s best fireworks. Alexandra Palace has one of the biggest displays in the capital; enjoy fireworks, a laser show, German beer festival, street food, ice-skating, kids’ activities and a Day of the Dead parade.
Head South for a stunning fireworks display set to ‘music made by legends’ in Battersea Park, plus a bar, food stalls and family entertainment. Pick up some glow sticks to join in the fun, but get there early; previous displays have attracted around 50,000 people!
Edinburgh fireworks displays
Most of us associate fireworks in Edinburgh with Hogmanay, or the Edinburgh Tattoo, but the Scottish capital also does Guy Fawkes Night with gusto. Meadowbank Stadium has provided the best in Edinburgh for 30 years, and this year is no different. Expect family entertainment, food stalls, and a sci-fi theme with prizes for the best costume.
SLA (Scottish Love in Action)
One of the most popular fireworks events in Edinburgh, SLA has two displays to go ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ over, while you can feel good knowing your ticket fee is going to help vulnerable children in India. There’s also pipe bands, Bollywood dancers, ‘fire circus’ performers, and hot food stalls to keep you warm.
Glasgow fireworks displays
Glasgow’s biggest and best Bonfire Night celebration on Glasgow Green is also free! Start your evening at the funfair, watch some family entertainment, tuck in to something tasty from a food stall, then enjoy the half-hour fireworks display set to music from live bands, all finished off with a laser show.
Inverness fireworks displays
Fancy seeing the biggest bonfire in the Highlands? Get yourself to Inverness to watch the fire being lit in Bught Park, right on the river at Loch Ness, before a spectacular fireworks display. Entrance to the event is free but get there in good time, as crowds of 15,000 are not unusual.
Dundee fireworks displays
Bag your spot to watch some of the best fireworks in Scotland at Lochee Park and Baxter Park in Dundee. Enjoy live music and entertainment, then a guaranteed spark-tacular fireworks display – all for free.
Why not turn Bonfire Night into a proper family holiday? Reserve a double bunk or two on the sleeper service with MegabusGold, then enjoy a whole day at your destination before we bring you home again.
