Family Friendly Ideas for St Patrick's Day

by Sally Foster (follow)
There is plenty of family friendly fun to be had on St Patricks Day

St Patrick's Day is always a great excuse to get together with friends and family and celebrate with some Irish fun and perhaps a pint of Guinness in hand.

As St Patricks Day is coming up on 17th March, and there are plenty of ways to get into the Irish spirit in London. Especially considering that this year it falls on a Sunday, which is always fun!

1. St Patrick's Day Parade

This lively parade kicks off at 12pm from Piccadilly and makes it way on a 1.5 mile route through the capital, passing iconic London landmarks and celebrating all things Irish! Take in the beautiful floats, enjoy marching bands and watch sports clubs and Irish dancing performers as they make their way through London.

The parade will take place on Sunday 17th March.

2. St Patrick's Day Festival

Running from 15th to 17th March, the St Patrick's Day Festival at Trafalgar Square is a free event showcasing the best of Irish food, music, song, dance, culture, and arts. This year’s theme is #LondonIsOpen and the festival runs from 12pm - 6pm.

3. Enjoy a Guinness at a London Pub

London is home to many fantastic Irish pubs, who will be in full swing of green festivities this St Patrick's Day. Some of these pubs are family friendly and may even cater for children with a kids menu. Our top picks to check out this St Patrick's Day are:

The Sheep Haven Bay in Camden Town
