Celebrate Her Majesty

 

To mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, a wildflower meadow has been planted in the Tower of London's moat. Stroll in amongst the blooms, and for younger visitors- or those young at heart- the super slide into the moat is sure to appeal. Reserve the Superbloom + Tower of London tickets to experience the flowers and then tour the Tower of London and the Crown Jewels. Open to the public for ten weeks each summer, The State Rooms at Buckingham Palace give visitors a peek into the working lives of the Royal Family and the history of the palace. The tour includes the nineteen State Rooms, Grand Staircase, Ballroom and Throne Room. Special highlights include Vermeer’s The Music Lesson as well as numerous other paintings by the masters, the Gold State Coach and of course, the Changing of the Guard ceremony. Named after Her Majesty and making travel in the capital even easier, the central section of the Elizabeth Line is now open. Visitors to London can enjoy new spacious trains and newly refurbished stations between Paddington and Abbey Wood.

 

Welcome back Dippy!

 

One of Museum Road’s most famous residents is headed home this summer- Dippy, the famous replica diplodocus skeleton from the Natural History Museum, is back on display after five years of touring around the country. While you’re at the museum, visit The Vault to see rare and unique natural treasures including a piece of the Winchcombe meteorite- the first meteorite to be recovered in the UK for 30 years, the world's largest collection of colored diamonds and the Devonshire Emerald, one of the largest ever discovered. If you’re in South Kensington with the whole family, pop into the Beatrix Potter: Drawn to Nature exhibit at the V&A Museum, celebrating the life and work of one of the best loved British children’s authors. The exhibition explores Potter's life as a scientist and conservationist as well as her inspirations from nature. 


The classics meet new innovations 

 

Pioneers of the immersive theater experience, Punchdrunk, are back in London this season with The Burnt City, telling the story of the fall of Troy set in a ‘future parallel world’. The three-hour-long experience is set across Grade-II listed buildings in Woolwich and is receiving rave reviews. Always a high point of summer in London, in 2022 the BBC Proms run from July to September and are presented by some of the best musicians and conductors in the world. Top billing goes to Cynthia Erivo backed by the BBC Concert Orchestra, the newly formed Ukrainian Freedom Orchestra and perhaps the most 2022 of performances- the ‘Gaming Prom – From 8-Bit to Infinity’ with an electronically expanded Royal Philharmonic Orchestra presenting themes from cult 80’s games and wildfire hits like Battlefield 2042. To kick your evening at the Royal Albert Hall off in style during your stay at The Capital Hotel, Apartments & Townhouse, simply show us your Proms tickets and enjoy a complimentary cocktail.
