Best Bonfire Nights in the UK
With bonfire night approaching this weekend we want to make sure you don’t miss out on the most spectacular displays across the country.
Bonfire night is one of Britain's best loved traditions. It marks the occasion of Guy Fawkes and his entourage attempting to blow up the Houses of Parliament in 1605 and to commemorate this the British public light bonfires, burn “Guys” and set off fireworks.
Of course you could attempt to light your own fireworks in the back garden and narrowly miss blowing up the shed or setting fire to a tree - but why not venture into the city to see a professional display?
