This year is an exciting year for visitors and residents of London, as we are getting closer to the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Keep reading to discover more about the Queen’s upcoming celebrations and the bank holiday that the British public will enjoy for this momentous occasion.

What is the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee?

The Queen is the first British Monarch to celebrate her Platinum Jubilee, which fell on 6th February 2022. After spending the past 70 years serving the people of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth, this year, the public will celebrate alongside her in May. As a result of this special occasion, there is a four day UK bank holiday, which stretches from Thursday 2nd June to Sunday 5th June 2022. It’s going to be an incredible weekend for everyone in the UK and is the perfect time to travel to London and stay with us to be closer to the celebrations.

During the four day bank holiday weekend, there will be various public events and activities throughout London and the country as a whole. The Queen chose not to celebrate back in February, just as she did in the past for her Gold and Diamond Jubilees. With the expected warmer weather in the summer months, it’s the perfect time to get together outdoors in one of London’s many parks and celebrate this once-in-a-lifetime occasion.
