The Lord Mayor’s Show
Saturday 12th November 2022
11 am – 2.30 pm
The Lord Mayor’s Show dates back to the early 13th century, when King John rashly allowed the City of London to appoint its own Mayor. The King insisted that each newly-elected Mayor should come to Westminster and swear loyalty to the Crown, and the Mayor of London has been making that journey for over 800 years. Around him (and her) grew up the noisy, colourful, joyous procession that over the centuries became known as the Lord Mayor’s Show.
Sorry: cars and buses don’t work on Show day. Tubes, boats and bicycles are much better, and there are many nice ways to walk into the City when it is free of traffic.
Where to go:
Some suggestions for different ways to watch the Show depending on how much you like a crowd and what else you might like to do that day.
