Final preparations are now in full swing to celebrate this year’s very special milestone – Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

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:

Thursday 2nd June

The Queen’s Birthday Parade (Trooping the Colour)

Starting at Buckingham Palace, the parade will go by the Mall to Horse Guards Parade, where more than 1,400 soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians will celebate The Queen’s official birthday. The Parade will finish with a spectacular fly-past of the Royal Air Force, watched by The Queen and Members of the Royal Family from the famous balcony at Buckingham Palace.

Friday 3rd June

Service of Thanksgiving

Her Majesty will attend a special service of thanksgiving to celebrate the 70 years of Her reign at St Paul’s Cathedral in central London.

Saturday 4th June

The Derby at Epsom Downs

Accompanied by members of the Royal Family, Her Majesty will attend the horse racing derby at Epsom Downs.

Platinum Party at the Palace

The BBC will host a special live concert from Buckingham Palace to celebrate Her Majesty’s special occasion. The spectacular show will bring together some of the world’s biggest musician and entertainment stars to celebrate each decade of Her Majesty’s 70 year reign.

Sunday 5th June

The Big Jubilee Lunch

The Big Lunch was an event started over a decade ago to encourage communities to come together to celebrate their connections and get to know each other more in a spirit of fun and friendship. In 2022 The Big Lunch will bring the Jubilee celebrations into the heart of every community.

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.

Here is the roadmap to lifting lockdown in the UK. We have checked off schools opening on the 8th of March and next up is Step One B:

Lockdown Roadmap UK

 

Here in London we are excited that shops and restaurants will once again be open in just over a months time on the 12th of April 2021. These next few months look very promising when it comes to easing restrictions and we could be more excited to see you all very soon.

From everyone at London Magical Tours, we would like to say a big thank you to the NHS and all the doctors and nurses who throughout the year have been outstanding!

We only had 2 full days in London and didn’t want to waste them trying to see all the sights by ourselves so we booked a private tour with London Magical Tours. What a WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE! Our tour guide made it so much fun for all of us especially our 2 teenagers. His knowledge of the history of all the places we visited truly made the experience unforgettable. From St. James Palace to the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, fish and chips in Kensington, Westminster Abbey, the London Eye and ending with high tea, we covered so much in one day. Our driver was amazing as well!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND. We had a memorable experience thanks to London Magical Tours!
