A Royal Affair
The first king of all of England was King Athelstan, who reigned in the early 900s. More than a millennium later, there is no denying the impact of the monarchy on the British tourism industry. From royal weddings to grand palaces, the British royal family bring in millions of pounds for the country’s economy. This is no more true than at present as we follow the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II in September 2022 and the coronation of King Charles III on 6th May 2023.
There are a reputed 4,000 castles in England. That doesn’t include country houses, grand manors and classic hotels. The Tower of London, home of the Crown Jewels, regularly tops lists as one of the top sights in London, and Buckingham Palace is rarely without a crowd. It can certainly be challenging to pinpoint the best royal attractions in England. Look no further. We’re here to guide you through the world at the very upper class of English society. This is a place of glittering tiaras, dramatic history, and quaint cucumber sandwiches. Read on to step inside.
