London, England

What better place to spend New Year’s than in the city that had the greatest year? The Olympics, Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee and the announcement of a new royal baby made 2012 the year of the Brits. So there’s no question that London will ring in 2013 with more style than ever. The city’s official fireworks display begins at midnight off the South Bank right by the London Eye, and with 250,000 spectators gathering as soon as 3 hours before the event it’s clear this is the place to be New Year’s Eve.
