VisitEngland has declared 2017 the ‘Year of Literary Heroes’, with the 200th anniversary of the death of Jane Austen, the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter, and the 75th anniversary of Enid Blyton’s Famous Five to name a few literary landmarks in the calendar. It’s a big year for the world’s biggest stories and the Georgian House simply can’t wait to celebrate.
Finally, the end of this topsy-turvy year is near and we’re already armed with our resolutions to kick off 2017 on a high (even if we only stick to them for a week). Whether you are glad to see the back of 2016 or sad to see it go, celebrate the occasion in the capital where there’s plenty going on, getting you ready to face the long month of January. To help us direct you around the city, we’re using the London Underground tube map, so you can easily make your plans and don’t miss a thing! It’s business as usual in London, so here’s New Year’s Day according to the tube…
While the Christmas madness is in full swing and the countdown taking its time, we always forget that the celebration doesn’t end there. New Year’s Eve is the day that waits in the wings ready to pounce and suddenly you need to make some last minute plans! Have no fear, we’ve got the best events in London lined up ready to help you celebrate through the night and even on the first day of the year.
