Attend a Platinum Jubilee exhibition
Three special displays marking significant occasions in Her Majesty’s reign – the Accession, the Coronation and Jubilees – will be staged at the official royal residences from July 2022.
At the Summer Opening of the State Rooms at Buckingham Palace, portraits of The Queen taken by photographer Dorothy Wilding between 1952 and 1956 will be on display, alongside items of Her Majesty’s personal jewellery worn for the sittings. At Windsor Castle, the Coronation Dress and Robe of Estate worn by The Queen for her Coronation at Westminster Abbey on 2 June 1953 will be on display, while at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, visitors will see outfits worn by Her Majesty on occasions to celebrate the Silver, Golden and Diamond Jubilees.
Visit Superbloom at the Tower of London
The moat at the Tower of London has been sown with over 20 million seeds which will erupt into bloom at the beginning of June, just in time for the main Jubilee Weekend! This initiative to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee marks the first stage of installing a natural landscape in the heart of the City of London. You can visit from 1 June – 18 September. Visit the Tower of London website for further information.
