Bonfire Night in London: where to see the fireworks for free!

Bonfire Night is also known as ‘Fireworks Night’ or ‘Guy Fawkes Night’. It is a British tradition dating back to the plot of 1605, when the Catholic conspirator Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament and King James I. Until now, it is customary for the cellars in the Houses of Parliament to be searched by the Yeoman before each state opening of the Parliament. The anniversary of Fawkes arrest on November 5th (sometimes known as Guy Fawkes Day) is celebrated every year with bonfires and fireworks in London. The effigies of Guy Fawkes are often burned on top of the bonfires.
