Olympians Parade in London

15 October 2008

Following Britain's most successful Olympic haul in 100 years, Olympic and Paralympic medal winners, including Chris Hoy, Rebecca Adlington, Ben Ainslie, Christine Ohuruogu, Darren Kenny and Eleanor Simmonds, join hundreds of their teammates in a colourful parade through the streets of London, meeting thousands of cheering fans along the way and climaxing with a grand celebration in a packed Trafalgar Square

The parade is due to begin in front of the Mansion House in the City at 11am. Athletes will travel on a series of floats, on a journey that will take then down Queen Victoria Street and past St Paul's Cathedral.

Mayor of London Boris Johnson  said: "Our Olympic and Paralympic athletes put in an absolutely brilliant performance in Beijing, bringing us all pride in their great achievement and renewing our confidence for 2012.

"The parade is the first time so many will have come together in public since Beijing, so let's give them a big thank you and cheer them on as they travel through the streets of London."
