On 2 June 1953, Elizabeth II was crowned at Westminster Abbey. Six decades on, England will be celebrating her 60-year reign with a range of events right across the country, from river pageants and Big Lunches to concerts and a royal appearance by a miniature (10 cm!) monarch. VisitEngland has put together a list of the celebration highlights.
Two new exhibitions this summer will explore royal style through history, and what better place to showcase the subject than royal residences? Head to Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace this summer for a celebration of fancy fashion.
Back in the days when “Downton Abbey” was for real, the British aristocracy would pour forth from their stately homes in summer for a series of social events when seeing and being seen were just the right thing to do. New dresses would be shown off and eligible daughters paraded in the hope that a young chap of good standing - and a large bank account or the right title, hopefully both - might take a shine to her. Welcome to “the Season".
Celebrate a court masque for Charles I every day from 9 July – 1 September.

Gift-givers need not look far for present ideas – Britain is the place to find great gifts for babies, and you won’t need a royal bank account to buy them.
