The Queen's Diamond Jubilee BeaconsA network of over 4,000 beacons will be lit across the globe as part of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Beacons which takes place on Monday 4th June 2012 marking The Queen's Diamond Jubilee. The Queen herself is taking part, lighting the National Beacon in London at around 10.30pm on the stage after the televised BBC Concert at Buckingham Palace, sparking the lighting of the last beacon in The Mall. In London, beacons will be lit on the battlements of the Tower Of London, St James's Palace, and Lambeth Palace as well as the roof of Hammersmith Town Hall, the art mound in Mile End Park and the Garden Bar in Notting Hill. There is a long tradition of lighting beacons to mark royal occasions: in 1897, beacons were lit to celebrate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee - the only other British monarch to mark a Diamond anniversary; and in 1977 and 2002 beacons were also lit to celebrate the Silver and Golden Jubilees of The Queen. The London beacons will be lit at the same time as beacons at the Palace of Holyrood House Edinburgh, Killyleagh Castle in Northern Ireland, and on top of Pen Y Fan Mountain, Wales. Sixty beacons are being lit along the length of Hadrian's Wall, each representing a year in the life of the Queen's reign.

 

About Tower Of London

With close to 1,000 years of royal history lurking within its highly fortified walls, a trip to the Tower of London is like traveling back to a time of intrigue and drama. Make your way from Traitor's Gate to join Sir Walter Raleigh in the Bloody Tower as he awaits his fate for allegedly plotting against James I. More about Tower Of London
