New Year’s Eve Travel Information
The following information is provided as guidance & will be updated with as much accuracy as possible.
London’s roads & public transport services will be extremely busy on New Year’s Eve & as usual the event area surrounding Westminster & Waterloo will be ticketed. Passengers joining us for a New Year’s Cruise do not need to purchase tickets from See Tickets to watch the Mayor of London’s firework display.
Central London will be heavily congested on New Year’s Eve and we advise all passengers to leave early and allow plenty of time to reach Westminster Pier.
The Northbank between Lambeth Bridge & Southwark Road Bridge will start to close to all foot traffic from 14:00. Access to Waterloo Road Bridge will be restricted from 16:30 & areas on the Southbank will start to close from 17:00. A wider area of the Northbank stretching as far as Vauxhall Bridge at 20:00.
Ticket holders will require their New Year’s Eve Boat Party Ticket & their Security Pass to gain access to Westminster Pier. Photo ID is not required to enter the pier. Guests boarding at Westminster Pier will only be able to access the pier via Westminster Underground Station. We recommend arriving at Westminster station via London Underground (Circle Line, District Line & Jubilee Line), we recommend that guests do not attempt to walk to Westminster Station or Westminster Pier.

We highly recommend that all guests check tfl.gov.uk in advance & on the day for the latest travel information.
