A right royal adventure to mark Harry and Meghan's wedding
The biggest event of the 2018 social calendar is coming up, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tying the knot on 19 May at Windsor Castle. Not on the guest list? Never mind, there are still plenty of ways to celebrate the royal wedding, whether you go sightseeing in Windsor, opt for a regal and romantic Edinburgh getaway or spend a weekend in London visiting the royal landmarks.
Historic grandeur near Windsor hotels
To really soak up some royal splendour, book a hotel in Windsor. This will put you just a stroll away from Windsor Castle, a beloved private residence of the Queen herself. You can go on guided tours of the opulent state rooms, spotting artistic masterpieces as you go. The sprawling grounds around the castle are also perfect for long walks and relaxation. And, if you're here with kids, you can treat them to a visit to Legoland Windsor Resort. After the genteel ambling around Windsor Castle's grounds, this famed theme park will provide plenty of thrills and spills to make your stay in Windsor all the more memorable.
A London weekend to remember
Real royal-watchers will relish a visit Buckingham Palace, where the lavish state rooms can be seen first-hand during selected periods of the year. There's plenty more to do in London, whether you want to go shopping in luxury department stores or pay a visit to the historic Westminster Abbey, where Prince William and Kate Middleton had their spectacular royal wedding. Keen to see more iconic residences when staying in your London hotel? Make time to visit Kensington Palace, or – if you're here in August – take a tour of Clarence House, the elegant townhouse residence of the Prince of Wales. Alternatively, you can enjoy one of the Royal London Bike Tours, which take in some of the most famous locations.
Immerse yourself in an Edinburgh extravaganza
The atmospheric Scottish capital has its own regal charms with a plethora of things to do. The Palace of Holyrood House is the monarch's official residence in Edinburgh, and is a suitably plush place to discover. Your Edinburgh hotel also makes a fine base for seeing Edinburgh Castle and the numerous museums that will take you on a tour through Scottish history. Whether you're here during the royal wedding or any other time, the grandeur of this city will make anyone feel like a visiting aristocrat.
