Lucky for you, Insight Vacations still have a few departure dates available so you can still score a ticket to the bustling city of Britain to soak up a moment that will go down in history.

Experience the royal wedding vibe for yourself with VIP experiences, authentic dining and the chance to meet local experts to give a little more insight into the country’s elegant and historic cities as well as their wealth of architecture, monuments and artistic treasures.

Here’s what’s still up for grabs:

Edinburgh Castle, Insight Vacations

Insight Vacation’s 9-day Best of Britain is priced from $2,840 and multiple departures available in May and June.

With the chance to visit the home of Shakespeare, the moors of Scotland and the beautiful Cornish Countryside, this really is the best of all that Britain offers.

Sunset at the Stonehenge, United Kingdom

The 5-day Gems of Britain is a great introduction to Britain for first-timers. Priced from $1,595 with multiple departures available in May and June, the trip is a look into quintessential British history, their traditions and beautiful landscapes.

Lincoln Cathedral and Castle Square, Lincolnshire, England

Insight’s 11-day Elegance of Britain itinerary is a must for those who have a love of literature and Britain.

Stately homes, historic castles and beautiful gardens shape a delightful itinerary, evoking a bygone age. Priced from $3,515 with departures available in May and June

Windsor Castle

Or for those after a little more luxury, Luxury Gold’s British Royale itinerary still has some last minute availability on the May 18th departure – the ultimate trip during the Royal Wedding season to uncover the very essence of Britain.

Gain after-hours, VIP entry to the majestic Harlow Carr Gardens, a member of the Royal Horticultural Society to join a senior gardener to learn about indigenous plant species, before enjoying an exclusive twilight picnic.

Another VIP experience will see travellers invited to the Tower of London to experience the exclusive Ceremony of the Keys.

This ancient gate-closing ritual has been carried out every night by the Beefeaters, without fail, for the last 700 years – a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
