We are offering you an action-packed long Jubilee Weekend, 01-05 June. The country’s greatest knights will be battling head-to-head at Hampton Court Palace’s Jubilee Joust, reminiscent of regular sporting practice at Henry VIII’s iconic palace. Hillsborough Castle and Gardens will also be travelling back in time with a vintage Jubilee Garden Party for all the family, taking inspiration from HM the Queen’s visit to Hillsborough Castle on her Coronation Tour.

Superbloom will transform the Tower of London’s iconic moat with a stunning display of vibrant flowers for the Jubilee. Get up close to the blooms sown from 20 million seeds as you walk through the moat, and make sure to return to experience the changing flowers until the event closes on 18 September. More intimate versions of the blooms can be seen throughout the summer at Hampton Court Palace, Kensington Palace and Hillsborough Castle and Gardens – don’t miss visiting them all. 

The celebrations don’t stop there. The Life Through a Royal Lens landmark exhibition can be visited at Kensington Palace until 30 October, where you can see intimate photographs of HM The Queen and the Royal Family including some from the private collection. Over at the Tower of London, there has never been a better time to get up close to the Crown Jewels

We will also be holding a number of special Jubilee talks and tours at our palaces.
