"Pearly King Harvest festival" Royal & Ceremonial London Tip by easyoar
Royal & Ceremonial London, London: 16 reviews and 27 photos
It amazes me how quiet this event is from a tourist turnout perspective. It appears to be almost unknown to tourists, yet the ones that accidentally stumble across it appear a bit bewildered and fascinated in equal amounts! If you want London pageantry, this is about as good as you get, and the even better news is that it is free and also you get direct access to the participants. Not only do you get to see Pearly Kings, Pearly Queens, Princes and Princesses, you get to see a whole raft of Lord Mayors (although unfortunately Ken Livingstone always seems to have something better to do). You get the London Town Crier. Chelsea Pensioners, Shire Horses, Donkeys and lots of little carts. You also get numerous self-styled London personalities.
I would highly recommend a visit to this festival. It tends to be around Mid-September. If you want to know more, try the following website:
The event I refer to above is the Pearly Guild Harvest Festival.
Address: may vary, see website specified
