Bonfire NightNovember is the month that likes to go with a bang - and an explosive one at that. The 5th of November marks Guy Fawkes' failed plot to blow up Parliament with the kind of pyrotechnics Mr Fawkes could only dream of. Every year for Bonfire Night there's a host of elaborate fireworks displays, processions, festivals and funfairs planned across the capital. There are normally huge displays in public parks across London including shows at Ravenscourt Park, Victoria Park and Battersea Park (to name a few) - we'll update our full feature nearer the time with the best places to watch the fireworks in London on Bonfire Night.
