May 8: State Opening of Parliament - procession

Jump to last reply

Just to let anyone visiting London know that the State Opening will mean some road closures around Westminster affecting buses, but perhaps more importantly if you want to see a bit of extra pomp and circumstance, the Queen will go in a carriage procession leaving Buckingham Palace around 11am to. go down the Mall across Horse Guards and through to Whitehall, then down Whitehall to Parliament, arriving at 11.15. The main part of the ceremonial will be inside Parliament, of course, and shown on TV.
