Lord Mayor’s Show and Fireworks

Date:8th November 2014

Steeped in tradition, the Lord Mayor’s Show has taken place in London for over 799 years. Despite adverse circumstances such as the black death and the Blitz, the show has still taken place every year and is always a grand celebration.

This year a flamboyant procession which includes colourful floats, horses and marching bands will be setting off from Mansion Place at 11:30 am. To mark the end of the procession, a spectacular fireworks  display over the Thames between Waterloo and Blackfriars bridge will take place.

 

Hyde Park Winter Wonderland

Venue: Hyde Park
If you are in need of some early Christmas spirit then head down to Hyde Park Winter Wonderland. Entry is free and it represents the perfect place to show off your ice skating skills (or lack of them!). If ice skating doesn’t take your fancy, then try the fairground rides or maybe take a walk through the Christmas markets and sample some delicious warm mince pies- yummy! If this doesnt bring out the inner child in you nothing will!

 

December

More London Christmas market

The kids will also love the market as they can meet Santa Claus and pick out toys they want for Christmas. Perfect!
