Wouldn’t you just love to be in London on 29th April 2011 for Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding?  Well you can count on Trafalgar to be right in the centre of the action. Since the announcement of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s engagement we’ve been so excited here at Trafalgar Towers that we’ve already chosen our top London spots to be on the day, and have hand-picked a list of London tours that will mean you’ll be in London for the special day.  You can’t blame us for getting caught up in all the fun -  after all, we can almost see Buckingham Palace from the office!

If you’re thinking of travelling to Europe or England in April, then it’s worth timing your visit to conincide with the royal wedding, as the date is sure to be a day of pomp and pageantry like no other. So here is a list of tours that start or end in London on the 29th April 2011 so you can be at one of the biggest Royal London parties of our time!

London Week (The Cumberland hotel)

London Week (The Hilton Olympia hotel)

London Week (Thistle Euston hotel)

OK, so you’ve booked on to a tour so you’ll be in London for the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. But it’s all about being in the right place, at the right time. That’s where we come in! Here’s our top spots to grab for the best views of the Royal Wedding.

Westminster Abbey


It might be almost un-reachable on the day, but the wedding will take place at Westminster Abbey, so head that way if you can.

Westminster Abbey has hosted many royal coronations, weddings and funerals over the years, such as  William’s grandmother’s (Queen Elizabeth II) who was  married in Westminster Abbey in 1947. Sadly, Prince William’s mother, Princess Diana, also had her funeral here on 6 September 1997, so Westminster Abbey holds even more importance for the happy couple.
Buckingham Palace

Kate may begin the procession to Westminster Abbey from Buckingham Palace (before travelling along The Mall, Horse Guards Parade, Whitehall and Parliament Square which are prime spots for the best views). Buckingham Palace has served as the official London residence of the monarchy since 1837. The couple will return here after they are married, for the Queen’s reception and a private dinner party in the evening, to be held by Prince Charles.
Wherever you congregate on 29th April 2011, one thing’s for sure; you’ll be in London on one of the most important days in recent Royal history, allowing you an unforgettable experience to share with your loved ones for years to come.

  1. Yes I will be in London on 29th April. I will end a Trafalgar Britain and Ireland Panorama Tour on the 28th April and luckily had booked another night in London. I was so excited when I heard the Royal Wedding was to be held on the 29th, that i cried. This is my first visit to London so I can’t believe my luck. I need all the tips I can get to make the most of my time in London and particularly to try and catch a glimpse of Kate and William on their special day.

    • Hi Narelle, my hb and I must be on the same tour as you as we will arrive back from the Britain and Ireland Panorama tour on Thursday 28th April. We to decided to have an extra couple of nights in London to soak up the atmosphere. We are Staying at the Park Plaza Kensington for those two nights. We have never been to London before so we were hoping to watch the wedding on a big screen in Hyde Park if one is set up. Otherwise would not mind being directed to an ‘Aussie pub’ in the area which is screening the wedding. (We are from Australia). Enjoy and cheers Sue

  2. Hi Narelle,

    We can understand your tears of joy, we were much the same. It’s such a unique event – how lucky that you booked that extra day!
