London’s New Year’s Day Parade returns for 2019 celebrating Britain’s multi-cultural capital with All The Queen’s Horses showcasing plenty of variety among its equine participants.

“The Parade’s theme is ‘London Welcomes The World’ and celebrates our vibrant, multi-cultural society and the visitors who flock to our capital from all over the world,” said All The Queen’s Horses co-ordinator and founder Caroline Marsh.

“On the January 1, London will see Norwegian, Spanish, German, Dutch, American horses stepping out with their equine friends from the United Kingdom in the party like no other.”

The LNYDP, is a free family event and has taken place every year since 1987 with All The Queen's Horses participating since 2012. Next year, it will feature 60 horses.

Around 500,000 spectators attend the event every year, and the route runs from Piccadilly near Green Park to Piccadilly Circus, Lower Regent Street, Pall Mall, Trafalgar Square, Whitehall to Parliament Square.

The parade starts at 12 noon and you can catch All The Queen's Horses from 1 pm onwards.
