Evan Evans Launches New Royal-Themed Tour As Royal Wedding Sparks Huge Demand

first_imgDELRAY BEACH, Fla., May 31, 2018 – With the recent wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle garnering worldwide attention, Evan Evans, London’s largest sightseeing company, has seen a huge surge in enquiries for “royal” tourist experiences. Evan Evans has responded by creating a new tour, ‘Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle with Lunch,’ to meet the demand. Watched by millions worldwide, 2018’s most celebrated nuptials put the spotlight on both London and Windsor, two destinations that have significant connections to Britain’s royal family. “We knew that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding would bring attention to Windsor, London and the UK more widely, and would be a fantastic opportunity for tourism this summer, but we were blown away by how much interest there has been from prospective customers in the UK and overseas wanting to explore the venues made famous by the royal couple’s nuptials,” said Therese Agerberth, managing director of Evan Evans. “In response to this demand we’ve created an exciting new tour combining Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace. This is the perfect full-day trip for anyone who wants to see where Harry and Meghan tied the knot in that beautiful ceremony.” The new tour allows guests to visit the very venue where Harry and Meghan’s marriage took place. They’ll enjoy lunch overlooking Windsor Castle, then explore the grounds, including the State Apartments and St George’s Chapel, where Meghan walked down the aisle and became a member of the royal family. Guests also tour London’s Buckingham Palace, Queen Elizabeth II’s official residence, and explore the 19 state rooms that are only open to visitors during the summer. ‘Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle with Lunch’ is available Monday through Friday from July 23-September 28 and includes a two-course hot lunch, a guided tour of Windsor Castle, an audio guided tour of Buckingham Palace, transport in a superior Mercedes coach, VOX personal headsets, and the services of a Blue Badge Guide. Prices for the day trip are $155 per adult, $141 per child, and $148.50 per senior. Evan Evans’ other royal-themed tours include: ‘Royal London Tour with Changing of the Guard’; the best-selling ‘Windsor Castle, Stonehenge and Bath’; ‘London in One Day with Changing of the Guard & River Cruise’; and ‘Historic Royal Palaces.’ For more information and reservations, please visit us at www.evanevanstours.com or call Evan Evans at (866) 382-6868. Join the conversation using the hashtags #EvanEvansTours and #MyEvansJourney on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.  About Evan Evans Evan Evans is the longest-established and largest sightseeing company in London, and has been accompanying visitors on city tours and out-of-town excursions since 1930.

Report on Mannar grave reveals samples from years 14001650 AD

The full report on the carbon dating was submitted to the Mannar Magistrate and made public today. Beta Analytics was selected as the laboratory as it is a recognised and accredited institution that specializes in bomb pulse carbon dating. Radio carbon dating calculates the amount of Carbon-14 in bone and teeth samples and establishes the approximate time when an animal or plant was alive. The carbon dating report on the Mannar mass grave has revealed that the bone samples taken from the site were from the years between 1400-1650 AD.Six bone samples obtained from the Mannar mass grave, located at the Sathosa Building in the Mannar town (Case No B/232/2018), were sent for radiocarbon dating, to Beta Analytics in Miami, Florida, USA. It is a form of testing used in archaeology and forensic science for dating human remains. Where the skeletons are of persons who died after World War II, bomb pulse carbon 14 dating can provide a narrower range of time period in which the deaths occurred.The report from the laboratory, along with results from other examinations carried out by the investigation team headed by Dr Rajapaksa, will help address key questions, including if these human remains, numbering over 300 skeletons as of 22 January, are from one ormultiple historical periods.
