London (PRUnderground) January 21st, 2012
If you want to join in with this year’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations and are looking for great accommodation at reasonable rates, be sure to discover one of the several London Bed and Breakfast options offered by the London School of Economics.
As if the previously announced celebrations were not enough, it has just been revealed that a thousand-ship flotilla will travel down the River Thames on Sunday 3rd June to mark sixty years of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign. The pageant, which is expected to cost around £10 million, will stretch for an incredible seven miles and is to be made up of a royal barge – named the ‘Spirit of Chartwell’ – along with a vast array of boats, kayaks, other vessels and even a floating bell tower.
Comprising 10 sections, each headed by a music barge, the flotilla will also feature a selection of particularly well-known, and somewhat surprising, vessels. These include Eilean, a yacht made famous in the video of the Duran Duran song ‘Rio’, and the boat from which Winston Churchill and Dwight Eisenhower inspected allied warships ahead of D-Day in 1944.
In what Thames Diamond Jubilee Festival chief executive Michael Lockett has described as the largest event to have taken place on the river for 350 years, there is no doubt that the 2012 event is going to be an amazing spectacle. Mayor of London Boris Johnson has even stated his belief that there are many people even more excited by the Jubilee than by the Olympic Games coming to the capital.
With quality accommodation available at seven convenient locations, the LSE provide comfortable and affordable city centre rooms which you can rely on being the perfect base to explore everything that London has to offer. Book a stay at a London B+B and see for yourself how you can experience all the glamour of the capital at a fraction of the normal price.
