Pride in London Parade, 6 July 2019
If you need proof that London is a welcoming city, don’t miss the Pride in London Parade, on Saturday 6 July. The Pride in London festival has been running since June and includes theatre, cabaret and exhibitions, while the parade itself starts at noon, covering the West End area and finishing in Trafalgar Square.
The parade starts at Portman Place at noon, which is just west of Goodge Street Station in Marylebone. It then moves south to Oxford Circus and down Regent Street to Piccadilly Circus. The parade continues south to Pall Mall and past Trafalgar Square to Whitehall, where the route finishes. After this, everybody in the parade usually heads back to Trafalgar Square, where a big stage is installed next to Nelson’s Column and the party continues.
It’s a huge amount of fun and a joyous celebration of human love in many forms, so take your rainbow flag and join in! The whole West End area will be incredibly busy until 6pm, while Soho will continue to be very, very busy until late into the evening.
