This is a procession unlike any other in the world. Last year there were over 7000 participants, 20 bands, 150 horses, hundreds of other carriages, carts, coaches and other vehicles including vintage cars, steam buses, tanks, tractors, ambulances, fire engines, unicycles, steamrollers, giant robots, helicopters, ships, penny farthings, beds and bathtubs.
The world famous Lord Mayor's Procession sets off from Mansion House at 11.03am. It pauses at the Royal Courts while the Lord Mayor swears allegiance and then returns by the Victoria Embankment at 1.00pm. The Lord Mayor will get back to Mansion House just after 2.00pm.
