London's New Year's Day Parade 2014The 'swinging 60s' is the theme for London's New Year's Day Parade in 2014 which sees more than half a million revellers and 10,000 performers take to London's streets on 1st January to celebrate the 28th anniversary of the parade. This fantastic spectacle takes around three hours to weaves its way along the 2.2 mile central London route, from outside The Ritz Hotel to Parliament Square. Expect vast, extravagant, Disney-style floats, with plenty of loud music, whistles and dancing in the street, along with marching bands, cheerleaders, street performers, clowns, acrobats, kites, colourful costumes and representatives from each of the 33 London Boroughs.

 

About Parliament Square

Located outside the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey, Parliament Square occupies a politically significant position and has often been the focus of protest and controversy - Brian Haw's famous Iraq war vigil is a case in point. Statues of political heavyweights overlook the grassy square with George Canning, Benjamin Disraeli and Robert Peel standing proud along with Nelson Mandela and Abraham Lincoln.
