The Queen's London programme during Golden Jubilee year



In four day-long visits, The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh will tour North, South, East and West areas of London, during the Golden Jubilee summer.

They will visit the outer reaches of the Capital on 9 May (East London), 6 June (North London), 25 June (West London) and 4 July (South London).

The tours have been designed to reflect the variety of population groups and cultural influences, some of which have emerged since the Silver Jubilee in 1977 and which together form London today.

The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh will be visiting the widest possible range of people and organisations in different communities.
