See the King's Army parade

Every year on the last Sunday in January the King's Army parades the route walked by King Charles I on the morning of 30th January 1649, from St James Palace to the Banqueting House in Whitehall, where the scaffold on which he was executed stood.

In recent years, we are told, the parade has finished on Horseguards Parade, to avoid closing Whitehall to traffic, but a wreath-laying group still crosses Whitehall to lay a wreath at the site of execution. The parade will begin at St James' Palace at 11am, and proceed to Horseguards, with events continuing until about 1.30pm.
