Remembrance Sunday – 11th Nov 2018

On Sunday 11 November, the National Service of Remembrance will be held at the Cenotaph on Whitehall, London.

Starting at 11am, the service will commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women involved in the two World Wars and later conflicts.

This year, with Remembrance Sunday falling on the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, it is expected that a greater number of people will want to view the ceremony. There will also be an additional event, the Nation’s Thank You procession taking place immediately after The Royal British Legion parade.

Large crowds are expected, and there will be road closures in and around the area of Whitehall, Parliament, Horse Guards and Trafalgar Square.

The timings for the day are as follows;

08:00: Whitehall opens to the public. The public are advised to arrive early to secure a good view, as space is limited. Please allow time to clear the police security procedures and you are advised not to bring suitcases or large bags.

09:00: Royal British Legion (RBL) detachments form up on Horse Guards Parade and in Whitehall.

10:00: All detachments march out from Wellington Barracks.
