St Patrick’s Day in London

Every year London hosts a St Patrick’s Day Parade on the Sunday closest to 17 March, which features spectacular pageantry, wonderful floats, and marching bands from across the UK, sports clubs and Irish dancing schools. The Parade usually makes its way down Piccadilly, on a 1.5 mile route passing some of London most iconic Landmarks including The Ritz, Piccadilly Circus, and Trafalgar Square and onto Whitehall.

The free St Patrick’s Day Festival in Trafalgar Square is a great chance to experience Irish culture with an artisan Irish food market, comedy and film festivals, children’s activities, ceilidhs, music and dance.
Saint Patrick is one of the patron Saints of Ireland and the day is traditionally celebrated with a feast and a national holiday in Ireland. St Patrick’s Day is also celebrated all over the world, by people of both Irish and non-Irish descent.
