June 2, 2013 will be the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's formal coronation that took place in 1953 when she was just 26 years of age. Her father, King George VI had died on February 6, 1952 and though she was proclaimed queen that year, her official coronation wasn't until 1953. Certainly it will be a jubilant time in London and throughout the country. The Coronation Festival at Buckingham Palace will be held from July 11-14, 2013.
In October, the National Theatre Company will mark its 50th anniversary since first opening at the Old Vic theatre.

The Shard is London's glass skyscraper that is a 95-storey story opening to the public in 2013. It is the tallest building in Western Europe and the viewing gallery and open-air observation deck will be located on the 72nd floor. The architect was Renzo Piano (also one of three architects who designed the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris) and the rich tapestry of scenery from the Shard will reflect London's history and the views stretching 40 miles with a 360-degree view.

Scotland has nearly 800 islands, but only about 300 are inhabited, so visitors to Scotland can enjoy the urban flavor of the country in cities such as Edinburgh or Glasgow and then head to the countryside to discover lochs, coastlines, and mountains. Famous of its golf, its Scotch whisky, as well as kilts, the culture is diverse and oozes charm.
Wales is on the western border of England and its capital is Cardiff. Located only 2 hours from London, Wales is easily combined with England for a wonderful vacation! Geographically, it's about the size of Massachusetts, has 631 castles, 750 miles of coastline, 11 million sheep, and 3 national parks.
