For anyone planning a London break to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee this June the route for the procession, which takes place on the 5th June, has now been announced.
In celebration of the Queen’s 60 years on the throne, the Spring Bank Holiday that usually takes place in late May has been pushed back to the beginning of June, immediately followed by an extra bank holiday for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee on the 5th June. Buckingham Palace has released details of the processional route that will be taken by the Queen through London from Westminster Hall to Buckingham Palace.
Travelling in the stunning 1902 State Landau the Queen and Prince Phillip will be followed by The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry of Wales. For onlookers there are plenty of opportunities to see the Royal procession as it passes along Whitehall, to Trafalgar Square, through Admiralty Arch and down the Mall, before going through the Centre Gates at Buckingham Palace.
Much like the Royal Wedding last year London will be alive with celebrations, making it a great time to visit the Capital. With a great selection of London hotels within easy reach of Buckingham Palace and Westminster joining in with the jubilee events couldn’t be easier.
London has arranged a selection of events to take place across the Jubilee bank holiday weekend including the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant which features 1,000 boats along the River Thames, on the 3rd June, the Diamond Jubilee on the 4th June and a superb exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum that runs until the 22nd April.
Will you be heading to London to join in the celebrations?
