Diamond Jubilee Attractions

March 20, 2012

, , , , ,

The year 2012 marks Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee (that’s 60 years on the throne people!). Most excitingly, this means that UK inhabitants get an extra bank holiday on June 5th. This follows an already existing bank holiday, meaning – that’s right – a FOUR DAY WEEKEND!

If you’re unsure of just what to do with yourself during this extended period of holiday, why not get patriotic and celebrate the reign of our stalwart monarch by taking in one of these “Royal-Inspired” tours?
