Plans for Trump’s visit

The national demonstration against Trump on Tuesday 4 June will be assembling at 11am at Trafalgar Square, marching to Downing Street and then to Parliament Square, creating a Trump-free zone and Carnival of Resistance.

The nearest station is Charing Cross Station (Bakerloo and Northern lines). To avoid the main crowds and the possibility of disruption, use Embankment, Piccadilly Circus or Leicester Square stations. Westminster is the closest station for the Parliament Square rally.
