The Queen's Procession Route in London

On Wednesday the Queen's coffin will be carried in procession from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall in the Palace of Westminster. Here the monarch will lie in state until her funeral on Monday 19th. The coffin will be carried by the King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery and will be accompanied by the Royal Family, led by King Charles.

If you want to attend the coffin procession in person then you can view the route on the Queen's Funeral Route Map. This map shows the route of the procession from the Palace, along the Mall, through Horse Guards, down Whitehall and finally to Westminster. The map includes an option to view the whole route animated using Google Street View.

The procession is scheduled to leave Buckingham Palace at 2.22pm. It will arrive at Westminster Hall at around 3pm. The Queen will then lie in state and the public will have the opportunity to pay their respects. The government says that you should expect long queues and that you may have to stand for many hours throughout the night.
