What's On At Easter? - Take A Step Back In Time

Visit the LONDON HARNESS HORSE PARADE taking place in Battersea Park on Easter Monday 12th April from 8.30 a.m. - 2.00 p.m. Free Admission.

The Parade, dating back to 1886, consists of over 200 horse drawn (private and trade) vehicles and carriages including entries from the Royal Mews, Fortnum & Mason, Harrods, Young's and Fuller's Breweries.

See the magnificent Shires and Heavy Horses with their brewers drays, Hackney horses with Hansom cabs, Welsh Cobs with London Trollies, Shetlands, Donkeys, Mules and many other breeds of horses and ponies.

Throughout the morning the entries will parade around Battersea Park under the watchful eye of a panel of judges including the Mayor of Wandsworth who will be presenting the Awards.

The Parade has something for every member of the family to enjoy. Grand-parents can reminisce and show their grandchildren the sights of their youth. There is opportunity for Easter shopping and refreshments at the various stalls visiting Battersea Park as part of the Parade. The sights and sound of old London - and all for free!
