Britain’s first coronation ceremony in 70 years takes place on Saturday (May 6) and people around the world will be celebrating the momentus occassion.
However, not everyone is a royal family fanatic and might want to avoid the event altogether. But, if you’re not planning on attending a street party or watching the blanket coverage on your telly, what else can you do this weekend to have fun?
We’ve got 11 ideas for alternative activities, including visiting wonderful art displays or treating yourself to a local pint in our beautiful city.
1. Visit the Floating Earth
Head to the Royal Albert Dock and view Luke Jerram’s incredible Floating Earth display. Visitors can view the amazing installation every day from 12-10pm for free, alongside a soundscape by Dan Jones. It is truly worth a visit! Photo: Mark McNulty
