When is King Charles coronation?

King Charles coronation will take place on Saturday 6th May 2023, but the celebrations will go on for the long bank holiday weekend, an extra bank holiday to mark the momentous occasion!

6 Ways to celebrate King Charles Coronation

1. Head into London

If you want to make a trip into London to witness a day in history, we can guarantee it’ll be a day to remember! You might not be able to make it into Westminster Abbey (unless you’re a pretty special royal VIP!) but you’ll be able to catch a glimpse of The King’s Procession on Saturday 6th May that begins at Buckingham Palace and finishes at Westminster Abbey. Got little ones in tow? Why not check out Tower Bridge and make your very own paper crowns and sashes, fit for any King or Queen.

2. Have a picnic and watch the live stream

What could be more quintessentially British than a lovely picnic? Whether you opt for an afternoon tea and some bubbly, or some takeaway pizza to indulge in for your choice of picnic, choose a spot that’s streaming the Coronation live on Saturday 7th May. You can find a list of all the areas with ginormous tellies you can lounge quite literally all day. Fingers crossed for good weather!

4. Bake some coronation treats

We never need an excuse to bake up a sweet treat! Make it coronation themed and make some crown shaped cookies or even a classic Victoria sponge with some fresh strawberries to share at your street party, picnic, or however you’re celebrating King Charles Coronation. Want to cheat? We love these Coronation themed cookies from Honeywell bakes that deliver straight through the letterbox, we promise we won’t tell!
