Contestants will arrive in London on 20 November with the grand final taking place on Saturday 14 December at ExCeL London.
The opening ceremony will be held in London, each contestant will then compete in a series of fast track events that guarantee a place in the top 30.
Julia Morley said, “London is the greatest city in the world to visit. It’s where Miss World started in 1951 as part of the Festival of Britain celebrations and this year, we are going to put on the best show ever.
“Each year we bring together women from around the world with a shared sense of purpose. For many of them this will be their first visit to London, and they are all so excited. They can’t wait to share their traditions, the music they enjoy, the food they eat and the astonishing range of ‘Beauty With A Purpose’ charitable projects they are working on.”
The highly-anticipated Miss World final show will be broadcast globally to over 150 countries, where viewers will watch as the reigning Miss World, Vanessa Ponce de León passes the crown to the 69th Miss World in London.
