This year the country will commemorate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, with 6 February marking Her Majesty’s 70th anniversary as monarch. There will be celebrations throughout 2022, and the UK will see a four-day weekend to honour this historic occasion.
To celebrate, Le Boat is offering up to 15%* off self-drive boating holidays on the River Thames in 2022, allowing guests to make the most of their time off.
On Friday 3 June, the God Save The Queen Platinum Jubilee Run will take place. The challenge will welcome runners of all abilities as well as walkers, with participants able to choose a distance to suit them. Starting at 9.30am and lasting up to seven hours. Le Boat holidaymakers will have the option to moor up and get involved.
The Royal Borough of Windsor is located along Le Boat’s Thames route, with a visit to this historic market town a must during the Platinum Jubilee year. Enjoy a spot of afternoon tea, shop for souvenirs, or stroll through one of the many beautiful gardens in the town.
Windsor’s Big Lunch will take place on 5 June, members of the public are invited to bring their own picnic with the intention of creating the longest picnic table ever.
No visit to Windsor is complete without visiting Windsor Castle and witnessing the Changing of the Guard ceremony. Founded by William the Conqueror in the 11th Century, much of the grounds and buildings are open to the public.
Travel with confidence: Holidaymakers continue to be reassured by Le Boat’s Covid Safety Charter, which was implemented last year and applies to all its destinations at home and abroad.
