The Lord Mayor's ShowThe annual Lord Mayor's Show begins with a river pageant and takes over the streets of London as a parade of over 6,000 people, military marching bands and floats surround a gilded State Coach carrying the newly elected Lord Mayor. It's a spectacle and celebration that goes back 800 years and a wonderful day of pomp and pageantry. The street procession starts at 11am with an RAF flypast and goes on until about 2.30pm, covering the whole area between Bank and Aldwych with the mayor departing from Mansion House for the Royal Courts of Justice where he/she takes an oath of allegiance to the Queen. For a grand finale there's one of London's most impressive fireworks displays at 5.15pm, set off from a barge moored in the Thames between Blackfriars and Waterloo Bridges. The best vantage points to watch from tend to be around Embankment and Gabriel's Wharf.

 

About Mansion House

Mansion House, the Palace of the London Mayor, was originally for the Lord Mayor to represent the City in appropriate style, Sir Crispin Gascoigne was the first Lord Mayor to take up residence in 1752. This fine example of a grand Georgian town palace continues to fulfil this function more than two centuries later. More about Mansion House
