Anzac Day

The Anzac spirit lives on in the hearts and minds of all Australians and New Zealanders, no matter where they are in the world.  

On Anzac Day, we remember those who defended our nations - but never came home.  

The Australian and New Zealand High Commissions to the United Kingdom are proud to commemorate the courage and sacrifice of those who contributed so much to shaping the story of our nations.

Due to preparations for the Coronation of Their Majesties The King and Queen Consort on Saturday 6th May, it will not be possible to invite the public to the annual Service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey.  

However, The Dean of Westminster, The Very Reverend Dr David Hoyle has kindly invited a very small number of representatives including the High Commissioners for Australia and New Zealand, and armed forces representatives to honour the Anzacs at a special service at the Grave of the Unknown Warrior. Photos will be shared afterwards.  

As per previous years, the public, members of the defence forces and dignitaries are invited to gather and pay respects to those lost in conflict at a dawn service at Hyde Park Corner in London and as well at a wreath laying service at the Cenotaph later that morning.

Capacity will be limited at the Cenotaph Service. If you wish to attend this event you will require a ticket, to enter the ballot please click here and follow the prompts:
