The Right Honourable Lord Mayor of London is the Mayor of the City of London and head of the Corporation of London. Within the City of London, the Lord Mayor has precedence over other individuals and has various special powers, rights and privileges.
The Lord Mayor is elected each year at the end of September or the beginning of October, and takes office in November. On the day after taking office, the Lord Mayor's Show is held; the Lord Mayor, preceded by a procession, travels to the City of Westminster.
The Lord Mayor's role is primarily ceremonial and social, rather than political, although he does promote London's business credentials abroad.
