Where and how you spend your New Year's Eve will depend on what you're looking for. Whether it's food, family and fireworks or drinks, dancing and debauchery, there's a party to suit every taste and budget. With Brits spending a staggering £1.5billion on New Year's Eve festivities in 2011, it's no wonder that venues throughout the country will be trying hard to draw in their share of the New Year's Eve revellers.
However, the most extravagant and sought after New Year's Eve party tickets don't come cheap. A VIP table in London's Sky Bar will set you back around £10,000, although you won't be short of drinks with the included Jeroboam of Dom Perignon and your very own mixologist.
New Year's Eve dining courtesy of Gordon Ramsey's Chelsea restaurant will set you back £250 per person, but you won't go home hungry following seven courses of Michelin-starred cuisine. If you're looking for something a little closer to home, even dinner at an average restaurant followed by seeing in the New Year at your local nightclub and a double taxi-fare home could set you back over £100 per person.
If you're planning on splashing out like Roman Abramovich on your nearest and dearest this New Year you'll need to up your credit card limit to around £5million. If partying like it's 1999, for a budget of around £19.99 is more your thing, you may want to consider celebrating New Year's Eve with a party at home. You'll avoid the over-crowded bar, costly cab fare and the shock of what you spent on drinks when your statement arrives!
