This year’s Pride in London parade takes place on Saturday 8 July 2017.
The parade starts at 1pm, and takes a 1.4-mile (2.3km) route from just north of Oxford Circus on Regent Street, down Regent Street and through Piccadilly Circus. It then heads down Pall Mall towards Trafalgar Square, and finishes in Whitehall at around 4:30pm.
The parade is set to be the biggest yet, with more than 300 groups marching and more floats taking to London’s streets than ever before. Anyone is welcome to watch and support the parade, but make sure you arrive early to secure your spot behind the barriers along the route.
Make sure to arrive early to secure your spot behind the barriers along the route, where you’ll be able to watch the parade. Pride in London is the city’s biggest one-day event, so the streets get very busy with people wanting to support and see the parade – follow our guide to staying safe.
The busiest area tends to be around Oxford Circus, so try and pick a quieter spot such as lower down on Regent Street to get a good view.
Anyone is welcome to watch and support the parade, but as it gets very busy, under-16s should be accompanied by an adult.
Plan ahead for the best way to travel to the parade, as some streets will be closed during the event. If you’re travelling by Tube, you should get off one stop before any point along the parade and walk.

From noon, the following stages will feature performances and entertainment throughout the day:
- Trafalgar Square main stage
- Cabaret Stage on Dean Street
- Community Village in Soho Square
- Family Stage in Golden Square
- Women’s Stage in Leicester Square.
