What time should I arrive?

If you have a ticket on the north bank (Blue and Red areas), south bank (White and Green areas), or Westminster Bridge (White area) you should arrive between 8pm and 10:30pm.

Ticketholders for Waterloo Bridge (Pink area) allow entry from 8:30pm to 10:30pm. 

Central London will be very busy in and around the viewing areas, with queuing and bag searching too.

Please allow plenty of time to get to your viewing area. Please aim to arrive before 9pm and bring only a small bag for essential items or preferably NO bag at all.

You must reach your entry gate within the times specified. Otherwise, we can’t guarantee you’ll get in. 

Remember to leave plenty of time for your journey. Check Transport for London and National Rail before you travel.
