London’s New Year’s Day Parade returns for 2019 celebrating Britain’s diverse multi-cultural capital with All The Queen’s Horses showcasing plenty of variety amongst its equine participants this year.
“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. On the 1st January 2019, 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.”
Explains ATQH Co-ordinator and Founder Caroline Marsh.
“Every year our costumes take their cue from the theme and so be prepared to see wonderful traditional dress given a carnival make-over. With 60 horses and over 200 people involved in our section, we’ve already had months of preparation to ensure we too, are ready to welcome the world on New Year’s Day.”
The LNYDP is a free family event and has taken place every year since 1987 with All The Queen’s Horses participating since 2012. 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. Enjoy one of London’s highlights with its a unique equestrian angle.
