If you want to discover exactly what makes the City of London unique, the Lord Mayor’s Show is a great opportunity as heritage and modernity come together one of the most exciting days in the City’s year.

Taking place on the second Saturday in November, the Lord Mayor’s Show is the largest unrehearsed pageant in the world and brings together all the pomp and pageantry the City can muster.

A three mile long procession of music and movement, community and commerce, pageantry and paraphernalia, the Show represents the City in all its diversity.

A great, free day out, the Lord Mayor’s Show is a visual feast of floats and performers joined by military units, local business, community groups and charities. Top tip – the Show is followed by an amazing firework display so head down to the Thames for a spectacular view.
