St Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival

For guaranteed fun and rowdiness, follow the St Patrick’s Day Parade (complete with floats, marching bands and colourful showmanship). The route is scheduled to start at Hyde Park Corner, passing through Piccadilly around midday. This massive parade passes many iconic London sights before ending at Trafalgar Square. From there the festivities continue with a full show from Irish acts and other guests.
