paves the way for a Royal Wedding weekend experience

21st Apr 2011 has heard London’s hottest gossip topic created by the Royal Wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton from halfway around the world and looks to help feed the public’s interest.

It seems London is the place to be for the weekend when one of the world’s most eligible bachelors ties the knot, fueled by the fact that it is also May Day the following Monday, everyone has scrambled to be in town for what will be one of the most fashionable events of the 21st century. Chief Marketing Officer, Tom Racette, expounded on the allure of the event and its accompanying four-day weekend.

“Royal weddings have always gripped the public’s attention at different points throughout history, even if you look outside the UK, but this time around there is a very definite modern edge to it for more reasons than one. Kate Middleton is essentially a commoner who is living the dream of every young woman by marrying a prince. Royal traditions will still be followed but many have been left behind as well, showing that this couple are at one with their generation. I think this is what draws so many people to this very special day.

“ knows that even with the wedding so close, travelers will still be looking for hotels, and our resources can narrow down the best places to look among the London hotels that are quickly reaching capacity.”

Mr. Racette finished by saying: “Many will be going to be as close to the wedding as possible, but people who want to make the most out of the rare four-day weekend should not shy away from London, quite the opposite - they should head into town to enjoy the unique celebratory atmosphere!”
