London is to be the venue of “one big party” over the double bank holiday weekend which will see Prince William and Kate Middleton tie the knot.
The royal wedding on the 29th of April will kick-start four days of celebrations, with numerous events expected to take place in the capital’s party venues. London is expected to come together in a way not seen since the night of the Millennium as tourists both from abroad and the rest of the country descend on the capital to participate in the partying.
A spokesman for British Airways told This is London: “The royal wedding has caught the imagination of people all around the world. We look forward to bringing tens of thousands of visitors to the UK next spring and throughout the year as the wedding creates fresh interest in everything Britain can offer.”
With planning underway for the biggest royal celebration for nearly 30 years, Transport for London have already promised that there will be no line closures or engineering works on the big day, keeping disruptions to a minimum. Hyde Park is expected to become a hub of celebration for tens of thousands of well wishers; previous major events have been screened on giant screens erected in the park, although it has yet to be announced whether this will happen.
A spokesman for the Royal Parks said: “The Royal Parks is looking forward to playing its role in this national celebration. We have a long tradition of supporting royal ceremonial occasions.”
