- Westminster Pier
Our Lord Mayor’s Firework Cruises will depart from Westminster Pier and travel down-river following the same route the Lord Mayor travelled during the morning river pageant. The cruise will stop near Waterloo & Blackfriars to watch a magnificent firework display over the River Thames, marking the end of the Lord Mayor’s Show and the start of a new mayoral year.
After the fireworks, we will continue down-river towards the Tower of London & Tower Bridge passing many of London’s famous landmarks. During the cruise our crew will provide a live commentary pointing out places of interest along the riverfront. After the cruise we will return to Westminster Pier to disembark.
This year’s Lord Mayor’s show will be the 802nd and will take place on Saturday 11th November 2017. The spectacle begins with a morning river pageant where the new Lord Mayor will travel from the City of Westminster to the City of London on-board the Queens Royal Barge, Gloriana.
After disembarking the Royal Barge, the Lord Mayor will travel to Mansion House to take part in the procession; a three-mile parade of more than 7000 people, 200 horses & 140 floats. The procession will travel to the Royal Courts of Justice in Aldwych where the new Lord Mayor will swear an oath of allegiance to the crown. At 1 PM the procession will set off again returning to Mansion House between 2 & 2.30 PM.
