The King’s Coronation celebration is a long-standing tradition in London, and it is marked by a public holiday on the day of the Coronation. This means that all residents of London and tourists alike can head out and join in the festivities around the city.
The Coronation will take place between the 6th and 8th of May. The main event is held in Westminster Abbey and is conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury. This is a momentous occasion and one that is steeped in tradition dating back to the 12th century.
But the celebration doesn’t end there. After the Coronation ceremony, a parade is held throughout the city streets where locals and tourists alike are invited to line the streets and cheer on the new King. This is a time for dressing up and showing your support for the new monarch. There are also street parties held across the city, where you can mingle with the friendly locals and take part in traditional dances and games.
