London Has Been Given A Rainbow Makeover For Pride

With the grand finale of this year's Pride In London just days away (find out everything you need to know about Saturday's big parade here), the capital is looking very colourful right now. From rainbow roundels to multi-coloured murals, we've hunted down our favourite tributes to London's LGBTQ+ community.

The Bloomberg Arcade

Follow the rainbow road at City food court Bloomberg Arcade (just off Cannon Street.)

These special zebra crossings

This one's outside Wimbledon's first ever gay bar, BAR CMYK, but you can also find these pride-themed pedestrian crossings in Woolwich, Greenwich, and Plumstead.

Maddox Gallery in Mayfair is known for its stunning floral displays, and this could be its best yet.

Rainbow roundels

See how many Pride-themed roundels you can spot on the London Underground on your way to the parade. As well as rainbow roundels, there's a Trans Pride roundel, plus the all-new Bi Pride roundel.

Ditch the escalator in favour of a technicolour trip up the stairs at Cardinal Place Shopping Centre.
