Parking suspended

Every visitors’ parking bay in the City of London is suspended for the day of the Lord Mayor’s Show, which this year is Saturday 9th November. Usually the suspension begins on the Friday afternoon, so that nobody needs to be towed away on the Saturday morning.

Residents’ parking is generally not affected but there are some bays closed around Fann Street, Golden Lane and High Timber Street where space is needed. Please look out for notices of future suspension when parking: cars left in the way will end up in the pound.

We apologise for the inconvenience this causes, but all of those roads are closed anyway and the free movement of large trucks, carriages, marching detachments, brass bands, heavy artillery, cavalry charges and hot air balloons is vital to the organisation of the Lord Mayor’s Show.
