Events at Historic Royal Palaces

Historic Royal Palaces are organising a wide range of events this spring and summer, from historic cookery to Easter egg hunting and pub quizzing. If a visit to the Tower of London is something you’re considering planning in then why not take a couple of days to make a break of it, with hotels close by such as The Tower Hotel which is easily accessible, close by to the main attraction and offers plenty of other historic things to do on your visit to London.

Some of the highlights include the ‘Arrest and Last Days of Anne Boleyn’ organised at the Tower of London. The live performance will explore Anne Boleyn’s, second wife of King Henry VIII, last seventeen days in the Tower, from her imprisonment, through to her trial and execution. Another exciting event is the reopening of the famous Tudor Kitchens at Hampton Court Palace in May. The kitchens will be brought to life by new interactive technology and sensory experiences, so visitors will be able to see, smell, and touch their way through the process of preparing a meal fit for a king.

Other activities organised at the Hampton Court Palace include ‘Horrible Histories live on stage with Gorgeous Georgians and Vile Victorians’, in which visitors can see the horrible history of Britain, while encountering King George III, the Lady of the Lamp, Florence Nightingale, and many more. The ‘Lindt Gold Bunny Hunt’ will return this Easter and the chocolate related history of the Palace will be discovered with every bunny found in the palace and gardens.

At Kensington Palace, people can meet Queen Mary II during drop-in sessions and family activities that explore her story. Key Palace will reopen the Great Pagoda that will be marked by the launching of the ‘Here Be Dragons’ exhibition. Children will be able to enter the world of dragons and dragonologists and will go on a dragon discovery adventure to find the five dragons located around the gardens.

Those that love a pub quiz will not be disappointed of Banqueting House special pub quiz that will put their knowledge on current affairs, music, culture, and royalty to the test. It will be an evening full of prizes, drinks, and a few extra surprises.

Finding YOUR Bridal Style

By Posted on 2 m read

Every bride wants to feel and look amazing on her special day, while making sure that the makeup, hair, and dress reflect her own style and personality. Trying to meet everyone’s expectations is hard and at the end of the day, not worth it. This day is about you and the person you are marrying, not about pleasing all those present.

So what can you do to make sure you will look fabulous, while feeling comfortable in yourself and the decisions you made?

Women have different styles and ideas, some like classic, sophisticated and elegant things; others are more fun and quirky, while others simply prefer natural looks. When you consider your venue, flowers, make-up, and dress, always remember what it is that makes you you.

However, whatever your style choice is, there are things that generally apply. For example, colour is really important, so you need to make sure that the colours you choose will give you a fresh and natural complexion, rather than making you look pale, yellow, or bring shadows to your face.

Another important aspect is the neckline. No matter what shape you choose make sure you don’t spend half of your time adjusting the dress. If you have never worn a strapless dress then this is not the moment to start wearing one, but if you must then get a fitted and boned bodice that will not fall down. Give it a try before the big day for reassurance.

Hair and make-up should always reflect the real you. If you like wearing your hair down, consider adding some flowers or jewellery to it, rather than putting it up. When you look in the mirror your make-up should make you feel like the most beautiful woman in the world and if you are not comfortable wearing something too glamorous, then go for something more natural. No matter what you choose, always make sure it stays fresh and you readjust it whenever necessary.

No matter what you buy, remember to ask yourself ‘Do I Love It?’. If the answer is ‘YES!’, then you know what you have to do. But if it isn’t, then you need to look for something better.
