Thinking of going away next summer? Well, don’t bother because the world’s eyes will be on us and little ol’ England is THE place to be.

As well as the small matter of the Olympics being held just 60 miles away from Portsmouth, we now have news of another long weekend just like the royal wedding celebrations – only this time it’s to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Millions are set to join in the celebrations – including an enormous river pageant on the Thames – and make it a ‘feelgood’summer.

Full details of all the events are set to be released later this week, but I reckon the Queen certainly deserves one heck of a party when she racks up an amazing 60 years on the throne.

Gawd bless ’er.
