If you plan on catching a glimpse of the world-famous New Year’s Eve fireworks in London, it’s going to cost you £10. London’s mayor, Boris Johnson, said that only 100,000 tickets will be available for prime locations along the River Thames, and said that: “For anyone without a ticket the fireworks are again being shown live and in full on television.” In previous years, more than 500,000 people have showed up to celebrate the new year and that by introducing tickets the event will be safe, enjoyable, and sustainable.”  The tickets will go on sale September 26 at noon. But as a press release reads, if you’re  not able to purchase a ticket: “The fireworks are again being shown live and in full on television, meaning you can watch it in glorious HD color without missing a single second.”

We’re sure this decision is going to ruffle some feathers for the near 400,000 who will be shut out from the once-free public event and also serve as a heavy deterrent on where travelers plan on spending their holiday.
