NOVEMBER EVENTS

Bonfire Night Fireworks: 5th November

Remember, remember the fifth of November… make sure you celebrate Bonfire Night in style at one of the many spectacular firework displays held across London.

Bonfire Night is also known as “Fireworks’ Night” or “Guy Fawkes’ Night”. It’s a British tradition dating back to the Gunpowder Plot of 1605, when Catholic conspirator Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament and King James I. 

The Lord Mayor's Show: 8th November 

From vibrant samba dancing to military marching bands, the legendary Lord Mayor's Show offers a host of entertainment as it winds its way through the heart of London.                                     

The Lord Mayor's Show dates back to 1215, when King John granted a charter allowing the citizens of London to elect their own mayor. Every year since, the newly elected Lord Mayor of London has travelled from the City of London to Westminster to pledge allegiance to the Crown.          

These days, the parade is more of a celebration than a show of loyalty. Join in the fun as around half a million people turn out to watch as the colourful procession travels across London.              

After the procession, a fantastic fireworks display lights up the sky over the river Thames.                             

The iconic golden Lord Mayor's coach can be seen at the Museum of London during the rest of the year.  

Remembrance in London: 9th - 11th November

Each year in November, the United Kingdom remembers the men and women who gave their lives in the two World Wars and subsequent conflicts. 

11th November is known as Armistice Day, Remembrance Day or Poppy Day. 

During the First World War, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, the guns of the Western Front fell silent after more than four years of continuous warfare. In many parts of the world, people observe a two-minute silence at 11h00 on 11th November. 

Remembrance Sunday is the second Sunday in November (the Sunday nearest to 11th November), and sees special events and services relating to remembrance. 

This year it is on 9th November, and there'll be a Cenotaph Parade in Whitehall in London. The Cenotaph ceremony is organised annually by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, with The Royal British Legion coordinating the March Past. 

There will also be various concerts, church services and events in London on and around this date to mark Remembrance Day.

Winter Wonderland: 21st November - 4th January 2015

Festive family favorite Winter Wonderland returns to London's Hyde Park with big top shows, the observation wheel and a huge Christmas market.

Follow the magical pathways and admire the beauty of the exquisite sculptures and crystal-like characters throughout the themed rooms. Meet the woodland ice creatures as you roam through the stalagmite forest – the ice bears, wolves, stags, owls, foxes and rabbits. Try a seat in the fairytale unicorn-pulled carriage, and take the slide in the magnificent ice castle. Specially created by Winter Wonderland and unique to the UK, this arctic experience will take your breath away!

Children and adults alike will be enchanted by the unmissable addition to Santa Land this year.

Introducing: “Santa’s Factory”, a fun-house where Santa and his industrious elves are making gifts ready for the big day! Walk through his magical sleigh, meet the elves and pay a visit to Santa’s Lapland grotto.

If you’re good with heights and want to see Winter Wonderland from above…try the fabulous new Star Flyer. For a truly exhilarating experience, soar over 60 metres into the air as it spins 360 degrees and feel the wind through your hair. It’s the closest thing to flying!

St Andrew's Day in London: 30th November

Expect bagpipes, tartan, golf, whisky and, of course, haggis!
