TOP 10 BEST FIREWORK DISPLAYS IN LONDON! 🇬🇧 (CHEAP/FREE)

One of my favorite things about winter is the beautiful firework displays that happen around the UK for Guy Fawkes Night (aka Bonfire Night).


This blog post will be telling you of the top 10 firework displays that you should be choosing from this November to celebrate Guy Fawkes Night. Although some of the displays are not on Bonfire Night exactly (5th November 2019), they are still celebrating the same cause and is a great way to bring the people you love together.



What is Guy Fawkes?


Guy Fawkes Night, also known as Guy Fawkes Day, Bonfire Night and Firework Night, is an annual commemoration observed on 5 November, primarily in the United Kingdom.


Its history begins with the events of 5 November 1605, when Guy Fawkes, a member of the Gunpowder Plot, was arrested while guarding explosives the plotters had placed beneath the House of Lords. Celebrating the fact that King James I had survived the attempt on his life, people lit bonfires around London; and months later, the introduction of the Observance of 5th November Act enforced an annual public day of thanksgiving for the plot's failure.
