Lord Mayor's ShowIn 2015 the Lord Mayor's Show marks its 800th birthday and we've been told to "look out for something really special" to mark the occasion on Saturday 14th November. The annual event which takes over the streets of London features a parade of over 6,000 people, military marching bands, Chinese acrobats, a procession of decorated floats and a gilded State Coach that the Lord Mayor travels in. Towards the head of the procession are two wicker giants, Gog and Magog, the traditional guardians of the City of London. The 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 she takes an oath of allegiance to the Queen. It's a fun family day out with a grand finale - the day finishes with one of London's most impressive fireworks displays at 5pm, 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
