VisitBritain says no profit will be made from ticket sales, the revenue from which will be used to pay for administration costs and ensuring the event is safe.
The capital’s mayor, Boris Johnson, said: 'London's New Year's Eve fireworks are phenomenally popular, not just in the capital, but across the world and we want to ensure it continues to be a safe, enjoyable and sustainable event for the long-term. We are introducing ticketing to help manage crowd numbers and create a better experience on the night.
