On Monday 10 September up to 800 athletes from Our Greatest Team, a combination of Team GB and ParalympicsGB, will take part in a parade through central London to celebrate with the public their achievements at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The parade will start at 1.30pm at Mansion House, City of London. It will pass along Queen Victoria Street and Cannon Street towards St Paul’s Cathedral and then progress via Ludgate Hill, Fleet Street and the Strand to Trafalgar Square. The parade is expected to take up to 13 minutes to pass any given point.
The parade will consist of up to 21 floats, arranged by sport, each carrying around 40 athletes. Medal winners will be included across the whole parade.
Once past Trafalgar Square the Parade will enter Admiralty Arch and The Mall for the final stretch. This will be a ticketed area for groups who have made an invaluable contribution to the Games and the success of the athletes. These include volunteers, members of the blue light services, military personnel, Team GB and ParalympicsGB coaches and support staff, friends and family of the athletes, as well as groups of schoolchildren from London boroughs.
