Where to watch the Royal Wedding

If you're NFI to the Harry and Meghan's Big Fat Berkshire Wedding *sniff*, head this way, baby cakes, the real fun's happening over here on May 19

Open Air Cinema: Bridesmaids, Swan At Streatley

Lights, camera… outdoor cinema action. If you’re running in the opposite direction to the Royal Wedding Windsor massive, then head to The Swan At Streatley for a wedding that’s more fun than a night out with Holly Willoughby. The Swan at Streatley will screen comedy classic Bridesmaids by the river, you can stuff your face on lush street food and hit the well stocked bar hard. theswanatstreatley.com

 

Al Shaqab Lockinge Day, Newbury Racecourse

The Queen’s favourite racecourse and she’s got a prior engagement. A Royal Wedding kinda trumps a day at the races. – but not for you. You’re invited to the Prince Harry and Meghan’s ‘I dos’ (well, it’ll be shown on a big screen), enjoy bubbles,  a classy picnic and it’s the perfect excuse to show off your style credentials. The Most Stylish Racegoer will be picked – and there are prizes. Oh, and the racing’s pretty good too. newburyraceourse.co.uk

 

Royal Wedding Garden Party, Cliveden House

If you’re not besties with Harry, Meghan or the Windsors, a Royal Wedding Garden Party at Cliveden House has got to be the next best thing. Cliveden’s hosted many a royal and aristo in it’s time, so buckle up for a fancy pants day of bubbles, BBQ lunch, more bubbles and a toe-tapping jazz band. You’ll also have the best seats in the house, watching the Royal Wedding in the Churchill Room. It’s like being at wedding without having to buy a gift. Adults £95; Kids £47.50. clivedenhouse.co.uk

 

Royal Wedding Garden Party, The Rowbarge Woolhampton

Need an excuse to party? Thought not. It’s a Saturday, the Queen’s ordered the sunshine and The Rowbarge in Woolhampton is hanging out the bunting, mixing the Pimms and has the Prosecco on ice for a fun family party by the River Kennet. It has a pretty spesh garden, so grab the kids, throw them on the bouncy castle and hit the bar. Manager Stuart and his team are going to fine up the BBQ, and a gone to town on the entertainment. bunningandprice.co.uk/rowbarge/

 

The People’s Front Room, The Hope Windsor

Big screen Wedding coverage and non-stop good vibes. Only two events worth heading to in Windsor on 19th May – one you might need a ticket for, the other you definitely don’t!  Head the Hope to celebrate the Royal Wedding with full big screen coverage in The Library from 11am, before Glastonbury Festival faves The People’s Front Room (a psychedelic 19th Century Salon) take over The Bar – expect live music and visuals from an in-house crew of performers and creatives on the cutting edge of new music and culture. fireythings.com

 

Windsor Racecourse, Royal Wedding and FA Cup Party

If you’re planning crowd surfing your way to the gates of Windsor Castle (er, good luck), Windsor Racecourse is running a Park and Float service. You can book a return riverboat from the racecourse into town for £10. If you get that far and can’t be fagged to battle your way through the world’s media and royal stalkers (I mean fans), pitch up at Windsor Racecourse’s famous Lawn and watch the wedding and the FA cup final on a giant screen – food, drink, kids entertainment and a DJ, should keep the party going. windsorracecourse.co.uk

 

The Jelly Lounge, Windsor

If your kids are more excited about the royal nuptials than you are, get down to The Jelly Lounge in Windsor. They will be laying on a day of royal wedding themed fun. Let your kids go wild up the soft play aisle, while you hit the bar – there is prosecco, gin or coffee, if that’s how you roll. thejellylounge.co.uk

 

The Boatman, Windsor

If you’re joining the swarm in Windsor, large screen will be up in Alexandra Garden and Long Walk in Windsor. Better still, head down to the river, book a table at The Boatman and you can watch the wedding on a big screen. They’re setting up a Champagne and Seafood Bar in the conservatory – so you’ll find me knocking back the bubbles while gnawing on a lobster claw. They’re opening from 10am. It goes without saying, you’ll need to book. boatmanwindsor.com

 

The Lexicon Bracknell

Curious to know what Meghan will be wearing on Saturday? Fancy a bit of celeb spotting but have your own shopping to worry about? Fear not The Lexicon Bracknell has got your back My list is less Hermes and more humous, but it’s good to know that if I do pop into H&M I’m not going to miss a minute of the Royal Wedding. A giant screen is will be up in Bond Square (nr Waitrose)and they’ll be screening the whole thing from 11am-pm. There’e a big red bus selling strawberry and cream and fun activities for the kids. Even better, it’s FREEEEEEEEE!
