    Could anyone let me know what New Years is like in London - especially in the bit on the embankment. Apparently it gets cordoned off after 9 - so i'm wondering whether there are toilets available and whether there is anything to do? I don't wanna be standing around doing nothing for 3 hours

    There's public toilets right next to Embankment station, whether they'll be open is another thing. Expect a lot of standing around for ages, though.

    Horrible.

    I've said this on another thread so be prepared for the worse.

    I've been a few times and had a great time. If you get there in good time you can get a decent space right in the middle, wrap up warm, have a bit to drink, sing some songs with friends, normally groups around you get involved. There are large banks of portaloos too, so that's not a problem.
