Plan your Pride

Residents and businesses

The Parade may affect residents and businesses in Soho and Westminster (Photograph: Lauren Anderson)

We work hard to minimise the impact of Pride on local residents and businesses, but there will be some road closures and access restrictions on the day of the Parade.

The below information relates to Pride in London 2016. Information may change for 2017. Please check back soon for updates.


There will be a Parade of walking groups and floats through central London. This will affect parking and vehicle access along the route. It can get very busy along the Parade route, as there are a lot of spectators. The Parade forms up in Portland Place from 9am and starts moving at 1pm. It leaves Portland Place and travels along Upper Regent Street, through Oxford Circus, down Regent Street, along Pall Mall and Cockspur Street, before dispersing in Whitehall at around 4:30pm.

Road closures

Road closures will be staggered along the Parade route. This will affect areas around Portland Place, Regent Street, Oxford Street and Whitehall. Some roads in Soho will also be closed. Roads along the route will reopen behind the Parade, with all roads expected to be open by 6:30pm.


Deliveries may be affected by the road closures in your area. We urge you to make alternative arrangements if you are expecting any deliveries within the road closure timings.

Parking restrictions

There will be parking suspensions along the Parade route from midnight on Friday 24 June. Suspension signs will be in place at all affected locations. Any vehicles that remain in suspended bays will be removed. Resident permit holders in zones E, F and G will be able to park in resident permit holder spaces in zones D, E, F and G zones from 6:30pm on Friday 24 June to 8:30am on Monday 27 June 2016. If your vehicle is parked in any of the car parks in Soho and you need access to it on Saturday 25 June, you will need to move it by midnight on Friday 24 June. Otherwise, you will not be able to access your vehicle until after Pride has finished and roads have reopened in the early hours of Sunday 26 June. More details
