Before most Londoners had woken up, a Golden stage coach was being pulled through the City of London.
The horse procession was part of rehearsals for this weekend's Lord Mayor's show.
The annual event marks the inauguration of the new head of the City of London corporation.
Pageantmaster, Dominic Reid told London Live about the preparations for the upcoming show.
The procession will set off from Mansion House at 11:03 am on Saturday 11th November, after a two minute silence.
