St. Patrick's Day Parade - FREE - ★★ - March, 2020


This isn't the spectacle that one might associate with many London parades. It is an expression of national pride by Irish ex-pats and showcases the businesses they have developed and the Irish county groups they belong to. There are some bands and, of course, some step dancing. More than a few of the participants and spectators have clearly been partying for a while, and it all ends at Trafalgar Square with a number of booths where you can purchase Irish products, get ideas about visiting Ireland and try an Irish stout or, perhaps, a whiskey. This can be a nice way to declare the onset of spring and the end to what often seems like a very long London winter.
