New Year's Day Parade 2015More than half a million revellers and 10,000 performers are expected to pack London's streets on 1st January to celebrate the 29th anniversary of London's New Year's Day 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.
