Her Majesty Elizabeth II has become the first monarch to ever celebrate a Platinum Jubilee this year – an incredible 70 years of service to the United Kingdom, the Realms and the Commonwealth.

There has been an overwhelming amount of interest in visiting London this year as a direct result and many of the events and celebrations taking place will culminate in a 4 day weekend at the start of June. Here are the confirmed highlights at the start of June period in what is sure to be a spectacular start to the Summer in London:

Freedom Day

A11CC539-C685-42FE-959B-5D63486A7F60

The United Kingdom will officially see the end of lockdown on the 19th of July 2021, otherwise known as “Freedom Day”.

As “Freedom Day” approaches, we take a closer look at what we can expect:

  • The ‘1 Metre rule’ will no longer be enforced
  • The Government’s order to work from home will end
  • The number of people we can meet up with in the UK will no longer be capped
  • The use of face masks will no longer be mandatory (however they will still be strongly encouraged)

It is important to remain cautious, as use of face masks and social distancing will be of great help in reducing the spread of Covid and the nation will be able to continue to ease back to some form of normality.

Looking to visit the UK? One of the great advantages of Private Tours is that your party can visit the famous landmarks of London and the surrounding cities away from the general public and from the comfort of your own private vehicle.

We are very much looking forward to “Freedom Day” and touring London with you during the summer.
