As London prepares for The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee this summer, the city has never been more alive than it is now! The streets are buzzing with anticipation for the festivities, and the entire city has got something in store for eager visitors to experience the very best of this magnificent metropolis. And with Hotel Café Royal’s oh-so-envious location in the very heart of London, bordering on Soho, Mayfair and St. James’ alike, you’re only ever a stone’s throw away from some of the hottest tickets around.

1. Reign On Me – it’s the Platinum Jubilee

70 years of dedicated serviced to the United Kingdom and Commonwealth deserves a city-wide celebration, wouldn’t you say? London is buzzing with excitement as we celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, with a host of events to take part in and see during your trip to England, including the summer opening of Buckingham Palace and the Platinum Jubilee Exhibition at Windsor Castle, both starting in July.

And it wouldn’t be the Platinum Jubilee if Hotel Café Royal weren’t taking part! Royal by name and royal by nature, the Café Royal has been the go-to place for the monarchy throughout the decades, so it’s only right that we celebrate the Jubilee in style. Whether it’s our extravagant Jubilee packages or our delightful Jubilee-themed afternoon tea, Hotel Café Royal is sure to be at the very heart of your trip to London during this special time.

2. Culture Vultures

Fans of all things culture are in for a treat this summer, with plenty to do and see. Whether you’re a fan of immersive exhibitions, or just ready for some good, old fashion West End theatre fun, our concierge team are at your disposal to make the most of London’s status as a cultural hub.

Fans of immersive experiences will love Dopamine Land in South Kensington, and the Yayoi Kusama Infinity Rooms at the Tate Modern have extended their stay to June 2023 to allow everyone to get that Instagram-ready snap. Plus, with the Summer Season at Shakespeare’s Globe opening, fans of the Bard will find themselves enraptured with this classic event.

Fans of the theatre will need to act quick, with tickets for Frozen and Back to the Future: The Musical getting snapped up before they end their runs in October. But fear not, because our dedicated concierge team are ready to secure your seats at some of London’s stalwart shows, including The Lion King, Les Miserables, Hamilton, and more.

Summer also sees the return of two of London’s favourite events – BST Hyde Park, with headline acts at the festival including megastars the Rolling Stones, Elton John, Adele, and Duran Duran, and the eclectic and electric Notting Hill Carnival. Discover some of our exemplary packages to make your excursion to London for these icons of the summer a true dream.
