These are the crowds in Trafalgar Square about 40 minutes before the parade even started! I don't know how many people turned up in the end, but I'd be surprised if it were less than 250,000. Trafalgar and Leicester squares were full as well as Chinatown and Charing Cross Road.

I found myself a place on the parade route, but after waiting for 45 minutes about a dozen kids and their parents had slowly edged their way in front of me so I could hardly get any clean shots. It was a bit rude, but the children were really excited and I just wanted a few photos so I figure they had priority. :-)

In the end the crowds and the cold drove me towards the bookshops and a cup of coffee on Charing Cross Road. I only ended up shooting about 30 frames, two of which I was quite pleased with.
