Where will you be for the Jubilee?

We can’t wait for Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations to begin and look forward to giving all the team a well-earned four day Bank Holiday weekend. Here’s a quick round-up of where we’ll be that week, we hope you can join us.

Monday 30th May

We’ll be hitting the beach in Skegness by the Sea where you’ll find a spacious Blue Flag beach, a lively Victorian pier and their very own Jubilee clock tower – built in 1897 to celebrate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee. We’ll also be heading north for a 2-stop tour through the Derbyshire Dales. We’ll stop in the pretty market town of Ashbourne before continuing to Tissington who host the first Peak District Well Dressing event of the year in honour of Ascension Day. Tissington has no less than five wells to dress and the decorations are top secret until Thursday 26th May when we’ll update this page with any news of a special Jubilee display!

**Update** We've received some beautiful images from Tissington Hall of the 2022 wells after the big reveal, visit our Facebook page to find out more.

Tuesday 31st May

We’re heading to North Yorkshire’s stunning heritage coastline for a 2-stop seaside trip to Whitby and Robin Hood’s Bay. Robin Hood’s Bay is one of the prettiest villages on the Yorkshire coast and is full of boutique shops that line the cobbled streets. You’ll find a quaint, independent gift shop on New Road that have put together a special collection of Jubilee souvenirs including a specially designed coaster, tea towel and mug - pop in to Jessica Hogarth’s shop for a unique piece of Jubilee memorabilia. National Trust members can benefit from a discount on our visit to Sissinghurst Castle Gardens today – this beautiful site was inspired by creative writers Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicolson. This year, The National Trust are planting and dedicating thousands of trees to Her Majesty in celebration of the Jubilee and in support of The Queen’s Green Canopy.

Wednesday 1st June

We’ll be stepping through the main gate at Kew’s Royal Botanic Gardens which was restored in 2012 and renamed Elizabeth Gate to mark The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee year. We’ll take a 2-stop coastal tour across Norfolk, the Queen’s personal neighbourhood, as we visit Cromer and Sheringham. And finally, we’ll travel to the Suffolk coast for a 2-stop tour to Southwold and Aldeburgh where a small exhibition is taking place in the Grade I listed Tudor Moot Hall to celebrate Royal visits to Aldeburgh over the years.
