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.

A Summer Time Picnic at the Palace

Summer is just around the corner and we could’nt be more excited for the sunshine in London and the warm weather!

Next week on Monday 12th of April, certain services such as hairdressers and restaurants with opening outdoor seating areas will be permitted to open.

One new event that London has in store is the announcement that Buckingham Palace will be hosting picnics for the first time in its history. Thats right, members of the public will be able to enjoy the summer and dine like a royal!

Buckingham Palace

From the 9th of July through to the 19th of September, visitors to the Palace will be able to freely roam the gardens and view the route filled with trees planted and named after Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Covid safety measures will still be in place with masks and social distancing.
