London can be an expensive place at the best of times, yet New Year’s Eve is a definite exception, with everything going up in price, from the taxis, to the nights out, to the cost of drinks. Luckily this year at least the Night Tube will be ready to ferry you about, from party to party, whatever the time though if house parties aren’t really the thing for you, we have found the best parties to head to in town for no cost at all. (We mean, obviously you will have to pay for drinks, duh!) But all of the parties on our list are offering free entry.

2016 has been a grim year so why not end it properly with drinking and dancing in true Broke In London style!
