PM Theresa May is coming under pressure to quit after saying she might not put her Brexit deal to a third vote by MPs.
She wrote to all MPs on Friday saying she will ditch plans to put the deal to another so-called meaningful vote if not enough MPs support it.
Downing Street sources have denied reports in the Times newspaper that discussions are under way about a timetable for the prime minister to step down.
Unless her deal is passed by MPs, the UK will have to come up with an alternative plan or else face leaving without a deal on 12 April.
Crowds were told the initial count showed more than a million people had turned up – putting it on a par with the biggest march of the century, the Stop the War march in 2003.
BBC correspondent Richard Lister, who was at the scene when the march began in Park Lane, said: “The march set off about 20 minutes ago but the movement up the march has yet to reach this point – and we are relatively close to the front – people here are still waiting to march.”
He said the organisers of the march “believe it’s the biggest mass movement in the UK”.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan tweeted a video of himself joining demonstrators holding up a ‘Put it to the People’ banner at the front of the march as it began.
He was flanked at the front of the march by Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable, who tweeted that there was a “huge turnout of people here from all walks of life”.
