About

Join in the lively Irish celebrations with St Patrick’s Day events and activities in London.

Every 17 March, Ireland celebrates one of its patron saints, St Patrick, with a national holiday and a traditional feast. While St Patrick’s Day is not a public holiday in the rest of the UK, London hosts fun and spectacular events every year to mark the day, usually on the weekend closest to 17 March.

In 2017, the official three-day celebration in London begins on 17 March, and culminates in the annual St Patrick’s Day Parade in Central London and Trafalgar Square Festival on 19 March.
