2022 sees Queen Elizabeth II celebrate her Platinum Jubilee, something no other British Monarch has ever achieved. It’s been a reign in which Her Majesty has seen the most extraordinary changes in British Society and the World more widely. Her life has been well-documented throughout the decades as new media has evolved and June 2022 will see televised celebrations and public expressions of appreciation for her tireless service.  As part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations,  Six in the City are organising walks around The City of London which has always had a very important relationship with the Monarchy, introducing visitors to the sites where  some of the most engaging history is to be told . We will visit many different parts of the City introducing visitors to some of the important sites, while recounting stories to do with many of the Queens of England including Matilda, Eleanor of Castile, Anne Boleyn, Mary I, Elizabeth I, Victoria and of course our very own Queen, Elizabeth II. She may have been able to reign “Happy and Glorious” and have more than one Jubilee but not all of them were so lucky.

Join us for this special Jubilee walk as we discover more about Anne Boleyn’s processional route on the river, as she made her way to her coronation, and of her trip a few years later as she made her way to the Tower as a prisoner.  Listen closely as we recount the tale of Lady Jane Grey, who was Queen for just nine days. Discover what Boudicca, Queen of the Iceni, did to London in AD 60 and what happened to Queen Isabella at the end of her life as she was laid to rest in Christchurch Greyfriars. We start our walk close to the Tower of London at the entrance to Tower Hill Tube and end the walk at St Paul’s close to the Millennium Bridge.
