A few years ago, I decided I really wanted to go to the top of Parliament Hill, on Hampstead Heath in North London, to watch the fireworks on New Year's Eve.
Parliament Hill offers a panoramic view across London, so it seemed like a really fun idea. But then it rained. And staying in the warm, drinking mulled wine seemed much more appealing. But this New Year's Eve, I decided to finally do it, and dragged my friend Jen with me.
It was amazing to watch all the different fireworks displays across London go off together at midnight. I quickly realised I should have brought my zoom lens to get better shots, but someone decided to set off fireworks on Parliament Hill, so we got our own display (legal or otherwise).
