Lord Mayor’s Show

A large group of us went to watch the Lord Mayor’s Parade last saturday along it’s route by the Thames. This is a historical event whereby the Lord Mayor travels from his housings up to the Royal Courts of Justice in Westminster where he swears an oath of allegiance to the Queen. One of the highlights of the parade is the gilded carriage he rides.
The Lord Mayor’s Show is one of the longest established and best known annual events in London which dates back to 1215!!

  1. Wild! I’m reading “London” by Rutherford…and the chapter I just finished last night had a whole section on the Lord Mayor’s Parade. Cool!

  2. What a ride!
    So glad you were there to see it!
