Is there a right to protest anywhere in the UK or are certain areas, times or even the right to protest itself illegal or not allowed?

In the UK by law you must tell the police in writing 6 days before a public march if you’re the organiser.

The Public Order Act 1986 defines a march or moving protest as a ‘procession’ and a static gathering as an ‘assembly’. The difference is important because the police have far more powers to control a procession than an assembly.
