How long will the queue be?
Wait times can be up to 30 hours, with guidance warning people to “stand for many hours, possibly overnight, with very little opportunity to sit down”.
When visitors are at the back of the queue, they are given a colored and numbered wristband. The wristband also allows people to leave the line for a short period of time to go to the toilet or get a refreshment and then return to their place in line.
More than 1,000 police officers, stewards and volunteers from the Scouts, Samaritans and St John’s Ambulance will be on hand to assist the public.
What can I expect from the queue?
The four-and-a-half mile driving route takes in London Bridge, Southwark and Waterloo before ending in Westminster.
The furthest back is Southwark Park, although this is subject to change and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) will inform people via Twitter about where the back of the queue is.
En route, the British Film Institute (BFI) will have an outdoor screen displaying archive footage of the Queen and her reign.
