The Lord Mayor's Show 2013

The Lord Mayor's Show 2013

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 mayor. 

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.
