LNYDP - London's New year's Day Parade

London's New year's Day Parade

The London's New Year's Day Parade is now a very major entry in the United Kingdom’s calendar of events. It is good for London and it is enjoyed by millions of people world wide.

The first "Lord Mayor of Westminster's Big Parade", as it was then known, took place on 1st January 1987 and even though a lot smaller than today London had never seen anything quite like it.

Featuring hundreds of dancers and musicians from home and abroad, the parade provides a feast of free entertainment for all the family.

The 2013 theme is 'The Olympics & The Diamond Jubilee' and more than 10,000 performers, representing 20 countries, are scheduled to entertain at the parade this year.

The formula remains the same – providing a spectacular year-opener to enable London to usher in the New Year within a fun and celebratory setting.

1 January
Start: The Parade starts at 11.45am on Piccadilly at the junction with Berkeley Street, outside the Ritz Hotel and proceeds along a two mile route past Piccadilly Circus, Lower Regent Street, Waterloo Place, Pall Mall, Cockspur Street, Trafalgar Square, Whitehall and finishes around 3pm at Parliament Street.

It is recommended to get your viewing space along the route by 10.30 am.

The admission is free.
