The Lord Mayor's Show

The Lord Mayor's Show

Welcome! The 2021 Lord Mayor's Show will be held on its usual date, which this year will be 13 November 2021. 

The Lord Mayor's Show has survived over 800 years of turbulent London history including plagues, fires, bombs and floods. If London is not locked down in November, as we all hope and expect, then the Show will go ahead.

Preparations for the Show have been quite hampered by lockdown and some details are likely to be different this year. It is unlikely that there will be grandstands, for example. Please watch this page or subscribe to our Twitter and Facebook feeds to stay in touch as the Show takes shape.

Details of the procession and the arrangements for spectators will be published at the start of October. We expect most of the day to be as usual, so here are some of our practical guides:

Getting here

Cars and buses don't work on Show day. Tubes, boats and bicycles are much better, and there are many nice ways to walk into the City when it is free of traffic.

Where to go

Some suggestions for different ways to watch the Show depending on how much you like a crowd and what else you might like to do that day.


Advice, suggestions and access-pass forms that we hope will be helpful to disabled visitors to the Show.
