Pride In London has confirmed the 2023 route for the annual parade in the capital. Celebrations will once again take place across the same path that marchers took during the first pride event in London.

Pride celebrations will take over the capital next Saturday (July 1). The theme for this year’s event is ‘Never March Alone,’ which aims to, in particular, support the transgender community as well as wider LGBT+ individuals.

2023 will see the capital’s annual pride parade return to its inaugural course. It will follow the path of the first march, which took place back in 1972.

The historic route was reintroduced last year amid the 50th-anniversary pride celebrations. Now, Pride In London has revealed it will hold celebrations across the same course for another year.

We break down everything Londoners need to know about this year’s pride festivities in the capital.

What is the route for London Pride 2023?

Those walking as part of the march will first assemble on Park Lane. However, the parade will actually start from Hyde Park Corner.
