For over 400 years, bonfires have been lit around the country, and for the last hundred years, fireworks are also set off, all done as a celebration of the foiled Gunpowder Plot. Effigies are sometimes also set alight on the bonfire, as a reminder to what happens to traitors like Guy Fawkes. Take a look below to see what firework displays are taking place near our boutique hotel.
