Central London was brought to a standstill as protestors marched towards the Houses of Parliament, chanting “Boris Johnson, shame on you”.
Sit-down protests also took place outside Buckingham Palace and across London’s West End shopping district.
Demonstrations were held across 34 towns and cities, including Manchester, Liverpool, Cambridge, Edinburgh and Belfast.
Protestors also gathered outside Balliol College, Oxford University, where Britain’s prime minister studied.
Anti-Brexit protests also happened on Saturday on mainland Europe, in Amsterdam, Berlin and Riga.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn attended a rally in the Scottish city of Glasgow.
“Demonstrations are taking place everywhere because people are angered and outraged about what is happening,” he said.
Mr Johnson’s decision to suspend parliament on Wednesday sparked outrage across political parties looking to stall a no-deal Brexit. ■
