SINGAPORE (January 26, 2011) – Agoda.com, Asia’s global hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed priceline.com Inc., today announces special London hotel promotions to celebrate the wedding of Prince William of Wales and Kate Middleton.  

With the date set for April 29, 2011, the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Elizabeth Middleton is cause for much excitement across the British Commonwealth, particularly in the United Kingdom. To best allow Britons to celebrate, the day has been declared a bank holiday and pubs are allowed to stay open until 1am – an hour later than licensing laws usually permit. Prime Minister David Cameron commented, "We want to mark the day as one of national celebration – a public holiday will ensure the most people possible will have a chance to celebrate on the day."

Second in line to the British throne, Prince William met Kate in 2001 at the University of St Andrews, where they both studied Art History. Over the last ten years, their relationship has been closely followed by royalists, pundits, paparazzi, and bookies, who for years have been taking bets on if and when the couple would wed.

Prince Charles – William's father and the heir apparent – recently announced via his Twitter account that the ceremony will take place at Westminster Abbey, an iconic London location. Chosen for its beautiful Gothic architecture and intimate ambience, Westminster has more than a thousand years of history, and is the official site for coronations, with ties to English and British royalty that stretch back to 1066. The cathedral is an important part of England's history in its own right, and is the burial place of many English writers and poets, including Geoffrey Chaucer, Charles Dickens and Lord Tennyson.

On the day of the wedding, spectators in London will be able to catch a glimpse of Kate as she makes her way by car to Westminster along the processional route.  This route includes The Mall, Horse Guards Parade, Whitehall and Parliament Square, and is the same path to be taken by the couple after they are married, this time in a horse-drawn carriage.

To help travelers take part in this very special occasion, Agoda.com has secured hotel promotions in several key positions across London. The featured hotels have great access to the processional route, either directly or via London public transport and there's a property to suit every budget. To avoid missing out of one of the biggest events to hit London in recent years, lock in your hotel room now.
