The London Harness Horse Parade as it is known today takes place annually on Easter Monday at The South of England Centre, Sussex. Steeped in tradition, the parade offers onlookers a glimpse into a world gone by and for those participating, a chance to show off their best turnouts as well as meet up with friends and fellow enthusiasts. The Parade in its present form is actually an amalgam of two traditional parades - the London Cart Horse Parade, which was founded in 1885, and the London Van Horse Parade, which was founded in 1904.

The nearest train station is Haywards Heath, train services from London to Haywards Heath run from Victoria, or London Bridge and other First Capital Connect (Thameslink) stations - train timetable.
There is only a limited bus service from Haywards Heath to Ardingly on public holidays
There will be a small admission charge to all visitors to help cover the costs.
The parade will contain a wide range of different vehicles and horses from Shires to Shetlands and donkeys
There will also be trade stands, catering facilities and horse drawn dray rides.
