New Year's Day Parade 2016 The London New Year's Day Parade returns for its 30th time in 2016, with the theme of '30 Magical Years'. The cherished turn of the year tradition promises to be even more spectacular than usual this year, with 500,00 spectators expected to pack London's streets and numerous London boroughs submitting entries. Entertaining London since its inception on January 1st 1987, the parade 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.
