If you’re coming from abroad then don’t bother with London, instead stay in Brighton hotels for the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations and get massive discounts.
Pick any of the spring or summer weekends in Brighton and you’ll guarantee there’ll be queens visiting – it’s just that kind of place! Diamonds are optional, but when it’s the Queen were talking about, you can guarantee she’ll tip up with a rock or two.
Ok, cryptic blog over. It’s the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebration this year and Brighton’s doing its bit to wish her well – we did get an extra bank holiday out of it, so it would be rude not to.
The Woodland Trust has said it will get 6 million trees planted in time for the celebrations, and a number of Diamond Woods. Well, 100 of these trees have already found their way into Tarner Park, off Sussex Street in Brighton.
The main celebrations will be lead from London, but if you are visiting Brighton looking for special hotel offers for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee you can expect an outpouring of street parties and bunting-fringed British fun.
St Barts in Brighton is having a festival concert on the night of May 26th – bit early, as the main party doesn’t get going till the following weekend.
On Sunday May 3rd there’s an initiative lead by The Eden Project called The Big Lunch, which encourages people to have lunch with their neighbours – sounds like the perfect incentive to help kick off a street party.
And just launched is a year-long exhibition at the Royal Pavilion. Charlotte: The Forgotten Princess documents the short life of Princess Charlotte, George IV’s only daughter, through her clothing and letters.
Brighton Museum and Art Gallery is holding a special display ‘Fashion & The Flag’ throughout May. And as the Queen’s celebrations are in the same month as the Brighton Festival and The Brighton Fringe, weekends in Brighton promise to be more colourful and intriguing than ever.
Visit London: Stay Brighton – that’s what we are saying
