Victory parade: Map and athletes

About 800 athletes are expected to take part in the victory parade for Olympic and Paralympic competitors. They will be carried along a three-mile-route, from the City of London to the finish in The Mall, by a series of 21 floats. Find out more about the route and who will be appearing on which float below.


Trafalgar Square

Crowds in Trafalgar Square

Rows of games makers sat on the steps in Trafalgar Square, where they were joined by thousands of other spectators.


Gold-medal-winner Jessica Ennis waved to the crowds outside the Royal Courts of Justice in the Strand. Four-times gold medal winner, Paralympic athlete David Weir was travelling with her on the second of three floats carrying the athletics teams.

Fleet Street

Hundreds of thousands of spectators lined the route of the three-mile victory parade. Gold medallist Mo Farah was on the first of 21 floats carrying the athletes through the city.

Buckingham Palace

The Red Arrows concluded a flypast over Buckingham Palace, which was led by the British Airways plane that brought the Olympic flame to the UK.

Who is travelling on which float?

The floats carrying the athletes will be travelling in alphabetical order, so athletics will occupy the first floats, with waterpolo bringing up the rear.
