Top Royal London Attractions to Celebrate the King’s Coronationcreative33
The official coronation of King Charles III will take place at Westminster Abbey on Saturday 6th May 2023, following a procession from Buckingham Palace.
However, watching this monumental service isn’t the only way you can delve into London’s royal heritage this Spring.
Add any or all of these attractions to your London itinerary to sample the lives of England’s royalty and celebrate in the most spectacular style.
See Buckingham Palace
Whilst Buckingham Palace only opens to visitors in the summer months, seeing this iconic residence from the outside is still a must-do when in London.
Try to time your visit during the changing of the guard for an extra special experience like no other. Alternatively, London is also home to a number of other royal residencies that you can enter, including Kensington Palace and Hampton Court Palace.
Tour the Tower of London
Join one of the famed Yeoman Warders as you explore this epic royal fortress, prison and home of the Crown Jewels themselves.
Check out Fortnum & Mason
This upmarket department store has been the royal grocer for over 100 years, and offers the perfect opportunity for you to enjoy a delightful pot of English tea, just like Queen Elizabeth II would have done.
Spend the Day in Kew Palace and Gardens
The former home of George III and his family, Kew Palace offers both recreated Georgian rooms and an upper floor that has remained untouched for centuries.
Plus, when you’re done exploring the palace, gorgeous botanical gardens with 500 acres of woodland also await.
Visit the Princess Diana Memorial Fountain
Those fond of the late Princess Diana should stop off at Hyde Park. The park is beautiful this time of year, and is home to a minimalist fountain that serves as a memorial to the beloved mother of Princes William and Harry.
Explore the Houses of Parliament
The Houses of Parliament are marked by the iconic Elizabeth Tower, and the estate’s Westminster Hall was also the resting place of Queen Elizabeth II on the lead-up to her funeral in 2022, making this a fascinating stop on your royal London tour.
Snap a Selfie at Madame Tussauds
Even if you can’t hang out with the actual royals, why not enjoy the next best thing? The waxworks at Madame Tussauds are ready and waiting in this museum’s Royal Palace, with photo ops aplenty.
Marvel at the Artwork of the National Portrait Gallery
The National Portrait Gallery is home to paintings of some of Britain’s greatest kings and queens throughout history.
The collection includes portraits of Queen Elizabeth II and King Charles III that are definitely worth seeing for any royal enthusiast.
Here at the Lansbury Heritage Hotel, we take great pride in our country’s rich history, and are ready and waiting to welcome you this upcoming coronation weekend.
