St Patrick's Day Parade and Festival 2016Floats representing all 32 counties of Ireland make their way through London for the St Patrick's Day Parade as over a quarter of a million people flock to the capital to celebrate Ireland's patron saint. The London parade is on the Sunday closest to 17th March - so in 2016 that's Sunday 13th March - when the parade makes its way from Green Park, close to Hyde Park Corner, around Piccadilly Circus, along Piccadilly via Trafalgar Square to end at Whitehall. In Trafalgar Square there's free entertainment with an Irish food market, children's theatre and fun activities, a film festival, comedy festival and fashion show as well as Irish music, song and dance on the main stage from 12noon.

 

About Trafalgar Square

Lord Nelson, Britain's greatest military hero, and the mighty lions that surround him, pay testament to the position of Trafalgar Square at the heart of the capital, the heart of the nation, and, at one time, the heart of an empire that controlled three fifths of the world.
