The coronation of King Charles III will take place at Westminster Abbey in London on Saturday May 6. Tourism will no doubt benefit, with visits to royal sites across the country and the 67th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool.
Westminster Tour before or after the coronation
Westminster Abbey is the official coronation church and has hosted 17 royal weddings. At the beginning of May, the church will probably not be open to the public due to the preparations for the coronation.
A difficult concert to organize
To close the coronation ceremony, a grand concert is planned at Windsor Castle. But, to the surprise of the organizers, it is not so easy to convince the singers and musicians to make the trip. Several stars will surely not come, to the chagrin of the future king of England. Elton John will be on a European tour. Harry Styles will also be between concerts. Robbie Williams will be at the Take That reunion…Even Ed Sheeran won’t be able to attend. Adele will not be able to attend because she will be in the United States.
To console yourself, head to Liverpool, which is known for its football club but is above all the world capital of pop.
The second major event on the British Isles is the Eurovision Song Contest on May 13 in Liverpool. Artists from this city have produced 56 #1 hits. Liverpool’s most famous children are of course the Beatles. The Beatles Story museum presents the largest exhibition on the famous group.
Many sights in Liverpool are free, including the Maritime Museums and International Slavery Museum, Museum of Liverpool and Tate Liverpool. Of course, a walk along the famous seafront, Sefton Park and spots made famous by the Beatles will also mean spending nothing but your time.
