This year’s Pride in London parade takes place on Saturday, 8 July. It takes a 1.4-mile (2.3km) route from just north of Oxford Circus on Regent Street, down Regent Street and through Piccadilly Circus. It then heads down Pall Mall towards Trafalgar Square, and finishes in Whitehall at around 4:30pm.
The parade is set to be the biggest yet, with more than 300 groups marching and more floats taking to London’s streets than ever before. Everyone is welcome to watch and support the parade, but make sure you arrive early to secure your spot behind the barriers along the route.
