Next month, the whole world will unite to celebrate Irish history on St Patrick’s Day (March 17th), but one of the best destinations to visit to celebrate the big day is actually outside of Ireland.
Trafalgar Square will host its yearly parade on Sunday March 13th when there will be plenty of activities to jump straight into, including songs, dancing and a number of colourful floats.
The parade starts at Green Park before moving to Hyde Park Corner and onto Piccadilly Circus through Trafalgar Square before finishing at Whitehall.
Throughout the day, there will be free entertainment at Trafalgar Square including an Irish food market, a host of children’s activities and a kids' theatre, film festival and a comedy event.
It all begins at 12pm and is set to create a carnival-like atmosphere across the capital as Irish pubs help to turn the city’s streets into a sea of green. Even if you are not Irish, the atmosphere is something truly unforgettable.
What’s more, London has the same excellent attractions as it always has, meaning visitors will have plenty of things to explore amongst all the celebrations.
However, St Patrick’s Day does bring with it lots of traffic and discomfort for drivers. With many of the streets shut down due to the parade, diversions will cause issues for travellers.
With this in mind, a coach trip could help to reduce stress for visitors and make their visit significantly less stressful. As well as this, a coach will drop you right in the middle of all the action, meaning you can start celebrating as soon as you arrive.
By planning a coach trip, you can spend more time on plotting your day rather than worrying about dodging all of the closures and delays expected in the city.
