St Patrick’s Day celebrations are held in London every year. Two central events are held; a festival and a festive parade.
Representatives of Britain, Ireland and dozens of other counties participate in the parade. The marchers represent sport clubs, various communities, schools and street theaters.
The festival which is celebrated on the same day holds various events in several places over the city; Trafalgar square, Leicester Square and Covent Garden. Due to the numerous visitors during the festival days and the high demand for accommodations it is recommended to check hotel rates and book rooms & tickets well in advance.
The festival and the parade turn the squares and the streets in the city center to a one giant stage which entertains the whole family.
