The London St Patricks Day parade 2022 is due to take place on Sunday 13th March between noon and 3pm.
The Mayor of London organises this historical parade through central London (please below map for parade route) to celebrate St Patricks Day each year. This is the 19th year the event has taken place. Following cancellation of the parade for the past two years due to COVID-19, the Irish community in London will be back with a colourful procession celebrating Irish culture. The parade will be overseen by the popular Giant St Patrick!
The parade will set off from Hyde Park Corner at noon, travelling down Piccadilly, to Piccadilly Circus where it turns right down Regent Street. From there it will turn left onto Pall Mall, pass the St Patrick's Day Festival in Trafalgar Square and is due to end in Whitehall by 3pm.
The Festival within Trafalgar Square will be taking place from noon to 6pm. It will host a stage with a world-class line-up of Irish culture and music, which is programmed in partnership with the London Irish Centre. In addition to this, the Square will welcome a vibrant selection of street food stalls, family activities, children’s films and youth performances, community choirs and dance troops.

The event requires a number of road closures, for which we work closely with Westminster Council, Transport for London and other partners to manage and minimise disruption to the local community.
Please note that vehicle egress northbound for businesses and residents of St James will be via St James Street to Albemarle Street only . This crossing will be managed by our traffic management and security team between 11am and 4pm on Sunday 13th March 2022 and may be limited for a small period whilst the parade passes. We will look to open the roads as soon as operationally possible.
