Listen to The York Minster bells chiming in the New Year at Midnight

It is a York tradition to gather around The Minster at midnight to listen to the bells chime in the New Year.

Thor’s Tipi

The Gardens of the Principal Hotel and Parliament Street

Thor’s Tipi have hosted New Year’s Eve parties in the past and are back and open in the gardens of The Principal, York as well as Parliament Street this year, so it’s definitely worth keeping an eye on their Facebook page for any updates.  

“There’ll be delicious sharing feasts by YUZU, served on Snowboards! With dishes inspired by the Japanese mountain resorts, including YUZU favourites such as Katsu Curry, Karaage Chicken and surprises like ‘Pigs in blankets sushi’.”

Have a look at our review of Thor’s Tipi here.

  1. Hi, your page about new year is very interesting thanks. Can you tell me if the bars / restaurants stay open late (until midnight)? We stayed in Glasgow last new year and everything closed at 9.30ish except for ticketed venues. Thanks, Susan

  2. “If you are lucky there might be a fireworks display.” – Is it possible to get a confirmation if the fireworks will be taking place this year?

    • I don’t know I am afraid. I have looked but I can’t find any confirmation. It’s possible as it’s happened in the past, but not definite I am afraid (sorry!). Nikki
