Funeral procession route map – Where to stand to pay respects to Queen

The state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II will be held at Westminster Abbey on Monday, September 19, and roads around London and Windsor will be closed for the coffin procession. The first part of the Queen’s funeral procession will see the coffin carried by a carriage, while the second will involve a hearse as the coffin makes its final journey to Windsor Castle.

Westminster Hall

The Queen’s funeral will begin at Westminster Hall, where the monarch’s coffin is currently lying in state.

At 10.35am, the Queen’s coffin will be moved from Westminster Hall to the State Gun Carriage outside the building’s North Door.

The procession will be taken through the New Palace Yard through Parliament Square, Broad Sanctuary and the Sanctuary, arriving at Westminster Abbey just before 11am.

Where can you view the Queen’s funeral?

Those hoping to view the funeral procession in London or Windsor should prepare for large crowds, as well as busy public transport, roads and motorways.

Transport for London (TfL) has announced that three tube stations, Westminster, St James’s Park and Hyde Park Corner, will be closed for “most of the morning” on Monday to prevent overcrowding.

People who wish to watch the funeral in person are also advised to pick either London or Windsor and not attempt to visit Windsor after proceedings in the capital finish.

GWR said: “It will not be possible to view both the funeral in London and travel to Windsor, as Windsor and Eton Riverside and Windsor and Eton Central stations will be especially busy during this time and may become full.

“You should plan to view one or the other and allow plenty of time to travel to either location.”

A screening site has been set up at Hyde Park, and thousands are expected to attend to watch the funeral on the big screen.

For the Queen’s lying in state procession, ceremonial viewing areas were designated at:

Green Park side of The Mall
St James’s Park side of The Mall and Horse Guards Road
Horse Guards Parade ground
Whitehall (West), Parliament Street (West), and Great George Street
Whitehall (East), Parliament Street (East), and Bridge Street

Further information on where to stand for the Queen’s funeral will likely be released on the Government website shortly.
