Those booking a stay in a luxury London hotel over the new year period will be able to see a spectacular parade taking place throughout central London on January 1st 2013.

Beginning at 11:45 GMT and wrapping up at 15:00, the procession is taking place for the 27th time this new year and will feature more than 10,000 performers representing 20 nations.

The parade starts on Piccadilly at the junction with Berkeley Street and travels via Piccadilly Circus, Lower Regent Street, Waterloo Place, Pall Mall, Cockspur Street, Trafalgar Square and Whitehall, before finishing at Parliament Street.

Visitors that wish to make their Christmas and new year as memorable as possible can book a Magical London package at The Chesterfield Mayfair Hotel, which offers two nights' accommodation in a beautifully appointed bedroom or suite.

It also includes perks such as mulled wine or hot chocolate on arrival, daily English breakfasts, a festive afternoon tea and a Christmas-themed turndown, plus free movies to watch during the cold winter nights.
