London's New Year's Day Parade started in 1987 and has raised or donated nearly a million pounds to a wide range of charities.

More than 10,000 performers representing 20 countries worldwide and more than half a million spectators line the 2 mile route. Around 200 million TV viewers watch The London New Year's Day Parade around the world so it's a very popular event. Image: © NewsPics Ltd | London Travel Blog
