Turns out that I do not have to travel very far to be at one of Europe’s top ten New Year’s Eve parties later in the month.
Just a few miles for me to travel to be at Weymouth’s famous dressed-up New Year’s Eve affair in Dorset.
The resort’s fancy dressed New Year’s Eve celebrations have been ranked in a top 10 with the likes of Rome, Brussels and Rotterdam by a European travel website.
Some of the other top 10 entries include, Kitzbuhel in Austria, Haparanda and Tornio on the border between Sweden-Finland, Rugen in Germany, the Canary Islands, Lyon in France and the island of Madeira.
Weymouth on the stunning Jurassic Coast just goes fancy dress mad as revellers don every sort of costume you could think of and few you would not!
This was cited as the main reasons to enjoy the town in a list of Europe’s best New Year’s Eve destinations compiled by the website goeuro.co.uk
You never know who you could bump into on new year’s eve night, then again you could be partying with a pop stars like Perrie Edwards from Little Mix who has been a regular visitor often with her One Direction partner Zayn!
It states on the website: “A harbour town on the stunning Dorset coast, Weymouth is host to the largest fancy dress New Year’s Eve celebration in the UK.
“Absolutely everyone dresses up on New Years Eve in costumes and the town celebrates together along the waterfront with ‘The Front Live’ event, where many of the pubs and restaurants coordinate to host an all-night party of live music, drinks and food.
“Revellers also gather in Hope Square or near the Jubilee Clock before midnight to ring in the New Year together before continuing the celebrations.”
If you don’t want to stand out in the town then do make sure you dress up as you will look very much out of place if you do not!
