It's an evening of celebration all around the world, reminiscing on the year just gone while toasting to the brand new year ahead. Whether you're looking to start 2019 with a bang or would rather a more relaxed and intimate affair, here at Original Travel UK we can organise a once-in-a-lifetime New Year's Eve to remember. Here are just a few of our favourite experiences in the UK and Ireland to end 2018 in style...
At Edinburgh's not-to-miss New Year's Eve event, Hogmanay, we can book sought-after VIP tickets to the HQ where you can watch headline music acts, have unbeatable views of the firework display over Edinburgh castle and join in the traditional Scottish celebrations.
Private Hire Castle
For a lavishly regal affair, hire out your very own Scottish castle to enjoy a private evening of festive celebrations with your nearest and dearest. We can arrange tailor-made entertainment and catering to meet your specific wishes.
The Roman Baths
There is arguably no party more glamorous in the Cotswolds than the city of Bath's New Year's Eve Ball at the historic Roman Baths. Enjoy a sparkling drinks reception before a five-star, five-course dinner. End the night dancing into 2019 with a live band, disco and a casino to enjoy.
Spend the evening at a luxurious gala dinner at one of London's most renowned hotels with a range of fantastic entertainment throughout the night. As a bonus, at midnight you'll have exclusive access to highly sought-after views of London's exquisite firework display on the Thames.
After a few celebratory tipples in the city's infamous Temple Bar area, count down the new year in Dublin's while enjoying festive entertainment and watching the fantastic firework display. Be sure to make a New Year's wish - hopefully you'll catch some of the fabled Irish luck!
Best of Belfast
Belfast may be a small city but don't let it's size fool you. After dining in one of it's world-class restaurants, you'll find plenty of craic & ceol (fun & music) that we can pre-book for you in one of our favourite local pubs or bars. As W.B Yeats said, 'there are no strangers here! just friends you have not yet met'.
Climb Mt. Snowdon
Climbing the tallest mountain in Britain (outside of the Scottish Highlands) for sunrise is a pretty cool way to end the year on a high, if you're asking us. Wake up early on New Year's Eve to reach the peak at 3,560ft for sunrise before retiring to your private cottage to begin the evening's festivities.
Rent a Rural Cottage
An excellent New Year's Eve option for families wanting to relax and bring in 2019 while staying in a home away from home. At Original Travel UK, we know a great selection of idyllic self-catered rural retreats. We can also arrange for a private chef to cook for those wanting a hassle-free festive evening.
