For the very best experience of the Lord Mayor's Show, you need a grandstand seat. There are two, next to St Pauls on either side of the route, offering great views of the procession and a chance to sit down.

The south grandstand is just visible above, about to be ravaged by the bin bot. Grandstand seats are released in the Summer - usually in early July - when planning for the year's Show is complete. For advance notice when tickets become available, you can join our mailing list below or follow the Show on Facebook or Twitter.
