London, consistently voted as one of the world’s most popular destinations, packed full of landmark buildings, world class tourist attractions, restaurants offering cuisine from around the globe and, for the past 30 years, the London New Year’s Day Parade, more fondly known by Londoners as LNYPD. Running alongside the parade is the LNYDP concert series and the Grand Finale of the London International Choral Festival performed in internationally acclaimed music venues across the nation’s capital.
Destination Events, in partnership with the City of Westminster and The London Mayors’ Association and supported by The Corinthia Hotel, BBC Radio London, Comm-Selmer and Telenet Global Logistics have all come together to produce yet another truly wonderful series of indoor and outdoor performances culminating in the spectacular London New Year’s Day Parade starting at 12noon, January 1st, 2017 on Piccadilly.
A far cry from the inaugural parade in 1987 with 2,000 performers, the 2017 Parade had over 10,000 participants from the USA, UK, Europe and beyond to delight our audiences, both on the route and on the TV through a live broadcast, which reached more than 300,000,000 viewers in 2016
An important part of the LNYDP is our fund raising for London Charities. Since the beginning LNYDP are proud to announce they have raised or donated more than £1.5M.
We Wanted to do something a little different on this particular trip to London and after doing a little research we came upon an interesting afternoon's entertainment as recommended by the Athenaeum. The Union Jag is a company that has wrapped a number of XK8 Jaguars in a Union Jack flag for the Ultimate Brit-pride attention-grabbing joy ride around London. It was incredible fun ad after a short visit to Buckingham Palace, off we sped to 10 Downing Street and the Houses of Parliament. Thank you to the Athenaeum an the Union Jag for an unforgettable few days . We left with huge smiles on our faces.

Our driver knew exactly where to go to show off just how much crowd pleasing the car gets. It was quite fun to have people taking photos of the car at every turn. The car itself is brilliant and has a touch of the James Bond about it…or maybe Austin Powers. The car was very comfy, but obviously powerful.The driving experience lots of fun…it was just hard reminding myself the next day that I am in fact, not 007.
