London: Extended public holiday
Our London office will be closed on both Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th June for a national holiday. The Diamond Jubilee celebrations will mark the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth's reign in the United Kingdom. Visitors to London should be aware that a number of major events in the capital for the occasion will lead to congestion on various transport routes and key landmark sites.
The following websites are publishing information on these events and the changes to transport or access in various areas of London.
