Find the best places in London to see the Queen's Diamond Jubilee flotilla on June 3 2012
The long weekend of June 2-5 sees London taken over by royal celebrations for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. The main official events are the Jubilee River Pageant on June 3, the Buckingham Palace Concert on June 4 (the ticket ballot is closed but it will be broadcast live on the BBC) and the carriage procession from the Palace of Westminster to Buckingham Palace on June 5.

You can watch from the riverbanks, join the festival in Battersea Park or book at one of the venues below offering special packages, which we've helpfully plotted on to our map of the flotilla's route.
