Buckingham Palace

On Coronation Day, Buckingham Palace is the place where the ceremonies take place. Their Majesties would travel in procession from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey. This is known as ‘The King’s Procession’. After the Coronation service, Their Majesties would return to Buckingham Palace as part of a larger ceremonial procession, known as ‘The Coronation Procession’. In the evening, there was a Coronation Concert to celebrate the new monarchs!

Westminster Abbey

You must know that the Coronation of Their Majesties King Charles III and Queen Camilla happened at Westminster Abbey, as is the tradition of the kingdom. The Abbey itself was well-known for its long history. Since 1066, thirty nine English and British monarchs have been crowned here, and King Charles III and Queen Camilla were the fortieth to be crowned in this place. For those of you who love history and majestic buildings, this is the place to be!

Westminster Palace

One of the most iconic places to visit in London is the Westminster Palace. This huge historical complex hosts the parliaments of the United Kingdom, but the most famous landmark in this palace is definitely the clock tower called Big Ben. Other than these, the palace is situated by the beautiful River Thames, perfect for you to recreate a totally British coronation vibe.
