Here’s a list of Royal adjacent events that visitors to London can undertake during their visit.
SIX the musical
Alright, yes it’s a bit obvious but the little British musical that is now a major international hit is a great evening in the theatre. Celebrate Queendom with the wives of Henry VIII, who like QE2 were incredible women in their own right. Find out more about SIX.
THE TOWER OF LONDON
Home to the Crown Jewels, location of imprisonments, beheadings and home to the Yeoman Warders and a UNESCO Heritage site. A unique historical site in London that is well worth a visit.
A palace of secret stories and public lives, Kensington Palace, situated in beautiful parkland in the centre of London was designed as a royal residence for William III & Mary II by Sir Christopher Wren. More recently it has been the official residence to Princess Margaret, Diana Princess Of Wales, and is currently the home to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Duke and Duchess of Suffolk. The recently renovated visitor routes reveal the surprising stories of many of the palace’s inhabitants over the centuries.
ST PAUL’S CATHEDRAL
t Paul’s is not only an architectural masterpiece and its dome a landmark of the London skyline, but also a symbol of the hope, strength and resilience of the city and nation it serves. A cathedral has stood here since 604AD with the present cathedral now over 300 years old.
Enjoy the beautiful décor of the vast cathedral floor before climbing to the famous Whispering Gallery* with its unique acoustics. Continue to the Stone or *Golden Galleries on top of the dome for breath-taking panoramic views across London.
The crypt is the resting place for famous Britons such as Lord Admiral Nelson, the Duke of Wellington, and the cathedral’s architect – Sir Christopher Wren. Visitors will also find the award-winning 270° film experience, Oculus – an eye into St Paul’s.
Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world. It has been the family home of British kings and queens for almost 1,000 years and is today one of the official residences of Her Majesty The Queen.
Occupying over 10.5 hectares, the Castle offers a varied day out for visitors, including a visit to the magnificent State Apartments and St George’s Chapel. The Castle’s State Apartments are furnished with some of the finest works from the Royal Collection, reflecting the changing tastes of the Castle’s royal occupants, particularly those of Charles II and George IV. Among the masterpieces on display are paintings by Holbein, Rubens and Van Dyck, Sèvres porcelain and exquisite English and French furniture. Many of the works of art are still in the historic settings for which they were first collected or commissioned by the kings and queens who have lived at Windsor.
