See London attractions on the New Year's Day Parade
Published: Tuesday 8th of December 2009
The route of the London New Year's Day Parade has been reversed so that audiences in America can get a better view of the many London attractions and landmarks.
January 1st 2010 will be the 24th anniversary of the parade, which usually starts at Parliament Street.
This time around the parade will start at Piccadilly at 12:00 GMT and finish at Parliament Street.
Executive director Bob Bone said: "Each year we act as a fantastic shop window for our city, but we wanted to make doubly sure that London looks at its very best.
"We made the change to get even better camera angles for our multinational satellite transmission."
Over 10,000 performers representing 20 countries are to take part in the two-mile parade, which passes through the city's most famous streets and past London attractions including Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and Nelson's Column.
The parade will be broadcast by the BBC, CNN, Fox news and many other stations.
