The Queen's birthday beacons
To help the nation celebrate The Queen’s 90th birthday on 21 April, we’ll be lighting beacons across dozens of our places. From a coastal clifftop to parklands and hills, the beacons will help light up the country as more than 1000 are set to burn across the United Kingdom.
The Queen, accompanied by The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall will light the Principal Beacon at Windsor Castle. This will be followed by the lighting of a number of Beacons along the Long Walk in Windsor Great Park.
Many of the beacons will be able to be viewed from a distance, but we’ve put together a selection of events that you can visit – just remember to bring a torch.
