I'm hoping to visit one saturday evening soon to see the illuminations and wondered if anyone can give me a little advice.
While looking up starting times etc, I realised that there are tickets for sale for this - have to admit i'd thought it was a free event with it being lights and fireworks on the river. Is it worth getting a ticket or can you just watch it from the streets anyway and are tickets available to buy on the day. I don't really want to book in advance but just to take a drive down one weekend when the weather seems ok.
Also, advice about parking would be useful. Visiting a few years ago I think i parked a little outside town near the river and walked down but I'm guessing parking might be more restricted when this event is on?
Thank you for any advice you can give
