The most anticipated baby in the world has been born and some of us are in a royal tizzy about it. Prince George is perhaps already one of the world’s biggest celebrities – and he’s not even a week old yet! If you’ve got royal baby fever, why not plan your next holiday around seeing all the sights that are most significant in the writing of this little prince’s history? Here’s a run-down of some significant royal spots.
The idyllic little village of Bucklebury has been flooded with visitors ever since Prince William slipped a ring on Kate Middleton’s finger. Her picture-perfect home town is a great place to enjoy country walks and meals in the local pub. You never know, you might even catch sight of the Duchess of Cambridge with her new baby in tow.
St. Andrews, Fife
It’s well known that Will and Kate met while both studying at the University of St. Andrews, so this classic university town has now cemented its place in the history of the royal family. Stay in our Dundee Central hotel to be a short drive from this charming seaside town. Make sure you stop off at the famous golf course, which has seen many a royal visitor over the years.
The day of the royal wedding was a public holiday in the UK, with 1 million people flocking to the streets of Westminster to line the wedding procession. The event was watched by tens of millions of people around the world. If you want to see where it all took place, make your way to London and wander around the impressive Westminster Abbey, where the couple said ‘I do’.
Anglesey, North Wales
After their wedding, William and Kate moved to remote North Wales, and it is Anglesey that can claim to be the site of their first shared home. Book a room in our Holyhead hotel and you’ll be able to hop over to the island to explore. Wander beaches, visit lighthouses and enjoy a pint in the local pubs, just like the royal couple. Anglesey is an area that’s rich in natural beauty, so for a real spot of drama head into the stunning Snowdonia mountain range for wildlife spotting and walks.
The Palace of Kensington is soon to be home to the Duke and Duchess and their new child. Once their 20-room apartment in the palace is finished, it is anticipated that the three of them will settle somewhat permanently in this impressive royal home. You can visit some of the house and gardens, so book to stay in one of our London hotels to combine that with a tour of some of the capital’s other royal residences.
