LNYDP – London’s New Year’s Day Parade starts at 12 midday on Piccadilly at the junction with Berkeley Street and finishes at 15.15 in Parliament Square.
London, consistently voted as one of the world’s most popular destinations, packed full of landmark buildings, world class tourist attractions, restaurants offering cuisine from around the globe and, for over 30 years, the London’s New Year’s Day Parade, more fondly known by Londoners as LNYDP.
The Parade Route
Piccadilly, Piccadilly Circus, Lower Regent Street, Waterloo Place, Pall Mall, Cockspur Street, Trafalgar Square, Whitehall and Parliament Street.
There will be road closures throughout January 1st, 2019 for the parade, please check the website later in the year for further details about these road closures.
A far cry from the inaugural parade in 1987 with 2,000 performers, the 2019 Parade promises over 10,000 participants from the USA, UK, Europe and beyond to delight our street audience of over 500,000 and our TV audience which reached more than 300,000,000 in 2018.
There is a dedicated area at the junction Whitehall at the junction of Horse Guards Avenue set aside for Disabled Access. It is an uncovered area of road space that is closed off to the general public. It also contains a toilet.
An important part of LNYDP is our fundraising for London Charities. Since the beginning we are proud to announce that we have raised or donated more than £1.5M for London Charities.
