London New Year Parade 2014

Live Stream, Route, Start Time, Schedule

London, UK, 1 January, 11.45am-3.15pm

 

London New Year Parade

There are a number of celebrations around the world on New Year's Day for those that manage to make it out of bed in time, and aren't nursing too much of a hangover! Or possibly the exceptionally brave who haven't actually made it to bed yet and are just planning on fighting through it instead....

Of all the New Year parades, the annual event in London is possibly the best known. First held in 1987, the parade enters it's 27th year on 1 January 2014, and has so far raised in excess of 1 million pounds for good causes. It has the benefit of passing some of the most famous and instantly recognisable monuments and tourist attractions in the world - sights such as Trafalgar Square, Whitehall and Piccadilly circus provide a truly memorable backdrop.
