From vibrant samba dancing to military marching bands, the
legendary Lord Mayor's Show offers a host of entertainment as it
winds its way through the heart of London.
The Lord Mayor's Show dates back to 1215, when King John granted
a charter allowing the citizens of London to elect their own
Every year since, the newly elected Lord Mayor of London has
travelled from the City of London to Westminster to
pledge allegiance to the Crown.
These days the parade is more of a celebration than a show of
loyalty. Join in the fun as around half a million people turn out
to watch as the colourful procession travels across London.
After the procession, a fantastic fireworks
display lights up the sky over the river Thames.
The iconic golden Lord Mayor's Coach can be seen at the Museum of
London during the rest of the year.
