Will buses still be running? 

Buses will be running but of course won’t be able to access roads when they are closed, so some services are likely to be diverted. 

How to get to the Pride Parade?

You’ll be able to watch the parade from anywhere along its route, but some of the best views will be from Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, Haymarket, and Whitehall.

The closest Tube station to Trafalgar Square and Whitehall is Charing Cross, with Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus stations also being close to the action. You can access Charing Cross via a mainline train or the Bakerloo or Northern lines.
