If anyone knows how to party, it's the Irish, and to celebrate St Patrick's Day in London they go bigger than ever.
The London St Patrick's Day Festival - now in its 16th year - historically attracts over 125,000 people to several events across London and to a one day parade and festival in central London and Trafalgar Square. It has become a destination event which showcases the best of Irish food, music, song dance, culture and arts.
Every year, people are encouraged to line the streets from Piccadilly to Trafalgar Square at midday to cheer on the annual parade.
If you’ve not been before, it’s a sight to behold. There’ll be everything from London Irish sports clubs and dance schools to marching bands, community groups and pageantry.
