It's coming up to that time of year where you can expect to see a green clover in every pub and all manner of Ireland-inspired drinks promotions. Even in London, the Irish want you to know it's St Patrick's Day on March 16th.

The capital will be celebrating the big day with a bang, so make sure you book into 41 so you're close enough to the action.

Firstly, a big parade including plenty of floats will amble its way around Piccadilly at noon before heading along Lower Regent Street and Pall Mall, eventually arriving in Trafalgar Square .

Here, you'll find the bulk of the celebrations, with traditional and contemporary Irish music and dance acts taking to the main stage.

In fact, the performance aspects are likely to be even better than usual considering this year's theme has been declared 'World of Dance'.

Whether you're celebrating your own Irish roots or simply wanting to enjoy the spirit of the festival, make sure you check in with the Champagne Celebrations package if you want to get an early start on the drinking - courtesy of 41.
