With Bonfire Night just a few weeks away, many visitors to London will already be planning how they intend to make the most of November 5th in the capital.
And while there are always a range of firework displays to watch and bonfires to huddle around, if you’re looking to do something a little bit different this Guy Fawkes Night there are a few alternative London attractions worth looking in to.
Writing for the Telegraph, lifestyle journalist and Bonfire Night enthusiast Amy Oliver suggests heading to The Midnight Apothecary on November 3rd (the Saturday before Guy Fawkes Night) to take advantage of the pop-up cocktail bar.
Situated on top of the Brunel Museum in Rotherhithe, this unique little garden bar will be serving hot culinary delights to go alongside a range of warming cocktails cooked up by BBC MasterChef winner Julie Friend.
Entry to the bar is free but be sure you bring along some cash for the bar, so you can enjoy delicious cocktail concoctions, while warming yourself by the bonfire or waving sparklers.
Gourmet food lovers will also be tempted by Amy’s second Bonfire Night suggestion: a three-hour Thames Dinner Cruise, setting off at 6:30 pm on Saturday 3rd.
The exclusive two boats will sail up the river taking in some of London’s most iconic landmarks including Westminster Abbey, which was so nearly destroyed by the Gunpowder Plot.
They will then moor up for the impressive Battersea Park fireworks display, widely recognised as one of the best displays in London.
Ideal for families, couples or groups, the cruise will offer a selection of food from the barbeque as well as access to a fully stocked bar.
Ticket prices stand at £45 for adults and £25 for children under the age of 12, and all food is included in the price.
