Description

Discover the fascinating life of our longest reigning monarch with this special commemorative walking tour. Saunter with us to the heart of Westminster, our royal borough, to hear the stories of her record-setting reign.

In June 2022, the nation came together in celebration of Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee, and her unprecedented 70 years on the throne. In September of the same year, we came together again to mourn the passing of our nation’s matriarch.

When she was crowned in 1953, the Beatles were still four years away from the meeting, mankind was a long way from that lunar first step and most of the country didn't even have a TV to watch the new queen officially take the throne.

Her lifetime was one of great change, within her family, the royal institution, the country, and the world itself. But as Her Majesty said herself, “Change is a constant… the way we embrace it defines our future.”

And how she embraced it.
