The Capital’s top attractions are offering visitors the “Royal” treatment with a whole host of Royal wedding inspired activities. Hampton Court Palace is giving guests the chance to join Henry VIII as he shows his mastery of the rules of courtly love and chivalrous romance to win the heart of Jane Seymour while visitors to the Chelsea Physic Garden can enjoy London’s oldest botanical garden while watching the wedding on large projector screens.

Against the backdrop of the King’s and Queen’s apartments, leading fashion designers Vivienne Westwood, William Tempest, Stephen Jones, Boudicca, Aminaka Wilmont and illustrator/set designer Echo Morgan have created spectacular installations, inspired by the stories of the princesses who once lived at Kensington – Mary, Anne, Caroline, Charlotte, Victoria, Margaret and Diana., Windsor Castle and of course the wedding venue - Westminster Abbey.
The Tower of London The Tower is still home to her majesty's Crown Jewels, on display for visitors to see, and the infamous Beefeaters tasked with the job of guarding them as well as showing visitors some of the attractions highlights.
