Our Greatest Team ParadeThe sporting heroes and medal winners of the recent London Olympics and Paralympics will parade through the streets of London in Our Greatest Team Parade in which athletes travel on floats from Mansion House to Trafalgar Square. The parade, which is expected to take up to 13 minutes to pass any given point, will be a chance to honour the athletes in recognition of their sporting success with around 800 competitors travelling on 21 floats, organised by sport. Setting out from Mansion House in the City at 1.30pm, they will travel along Queen Victoria Street and Cannon Street, passing by St Paul's Cathedral, continuing along Fleet Street, past Aldwych and into The Strand, before reaching Trafalgar Square where a big screen will show the parade. A parade route map is available on the Mayor of London Presents website. Taking the Admiralty Arch exit from Trafalgar Square, this area, along The Mall to the Queen Victoria Memorial in front of Buckingham Palace, will be ticketed, reserved for 14,000 volunteers and people who have made an invaluable contribution to the Games. There will be road closures around the route which is expected to be very busy.

 

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
