Following the Olympic and Paralympic events which took place in St James's Park during the summer, restoration work has taken place and several areas have been temporarily fenced off. Therefore some of the usual New Year's Eve viewing areas will be not be open to the public.
Signs will be in place indicating to visitors which sections of the park are closed and visitors will be informed once viewing areas are full.
For details about the fireworks on New Year's Eve please visit: www.london.gov.uk/events/nye
The restored areas of the park will be reopened as soon as they have recovered in spring 2013 and The Royal Parks would like to thank park visitors for their patience.
