The Welsh capital city, Cardiff, is rapidly making a name for itself as one of the best places to celebrate New Year, or Calennig as the locals say. On the big night the city’s bars and music venues are filled with live bands, while crowds gather round City Hall to enjoy a magnificent midnight firework display. With a free bus service for revellers to get in and out of the city, it won’t be long before you are back in the comfort of your hotel.

For fancy dress fans, the place to be is St Ives, Cornwall. Thousands of people swarm this small town and the party really kicks off from 6pm. The main celebration is at the harbour front with live bands and food stalls, while the restaurants and bars host their own themed parties. The merriment continues through the night culminating with a stunning firework display lighting up the town.
