Travel to London during the Diamond Jubilee-How to see the sights?

Jump to last reply

We booked our first trip to London for June 3 to 6th, not aware of the Queens diamond jubilee! Now we are wondering what the best way will be to see the sights, since the city will be so crowded and attractions closed off. We don't really care about participating in the celebration as much as seeing the attractions. Any suggestions as to how to do it. We actually land in LHR at noon on the 3rd, the day of her river float. Would it be a good time to see things because everyone will be at the river? Thanks for the help :)

    What attractions are closed off?

    London doesn't function the way you imagine. Whether 100,000 or a million people line the river, there'll be fewer people in central London throughout the Jubilee holiday than on an average working day, and most of them will be doing things that have nothing to do with the Jubilee. The museums might be a tad emptier or a tad fuller than any other Saturday. Or not

    There'll be temporary, but possibly prolonged, traffic disruptions at different places at different times through the weekend - but there'll not be a hint of anything odd 100 yards away. Tubes will run - and more importantly be accessible - almost as usual, except for a few access restrictions for a few hours at one or two stations. The only really serious change is that most Thames bridges will be closed for most of the Saturday, so cross-river buses won't be available, and some places on the South Bank will be accessible only by tube

    TfL haven't yet published the disruption plan - but check at http://www.thediamondjubilee.org/central-weekend for what's happening (to watch or avoid as you prefer) and at the TfL site for details of transport changes nearer the date.

    Assume, though, that unless you positively decide to go close to where something's happening, it'll have close to zero effect on your plans.
