Bonfire Night - London, England, 5 November
Remember, remember the fifth of November... also known as Fireworks Night or Guy Fawkes Night, Bonfire Night is a British tradition that dates back to the famed Gunpowder Plot of 1605 when Guy Fawkes, a Catholic conspirator, tried to blow up the House of Parliament.
This tradition today works as the perfect excuse for people to wrap up warm and sit outside shooting fireworks into the night while drinking mulled wine and nibbling on food.
London will hold firework festivities on the night as it does every year. Throughout the capital spectacular displays and giant bonfires will give visitors and locals alike a chance to take part in one of the most interesting and often least well known British traditions.
