You don’t need an invite to the royal wedding to explore Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s favorite hangouts in England’s historic capital.
STAY AT WILL AND KATE’S FAVORITE HOTELS
Prince William and Kate Middleton regularly enjoy drinks at the cozy American Bar in The Stafford London Kempinski. The five-star hotel offers 105 elegant rooms and suites, tucked away in central London’s historic Piccadilly area, next to St. James’ Palace.
For the royal wedding, Kate’s family has reportedly booked rooms at The Goring, a grand 100-year- old family-run hotel located right next to Buckingham Palace.
PARTY WITH THE PRINCES!
You might not expect to bump into royalty during a night out on the town, but Will and Kate love London’s hippest clubs. Thursday nights at their favorite nightclub, Mahiki, a two-floor Polynesian-themed hangout, attract the hottest A-listers like Rihanna, Beyonce? and Kanye West. Put your name on the guest list at mahiki.com and arrive well before the 11 p.m. rush.
For a more laid-back evening, book a table at the second-floor restaurant at Eighty-Six, the chic Chelsea townhouse where Kate recently celebrated her 29th birthday.

You won’t get a seat in Westminster Abbey on April 29, but the church — more than 700 years old — is usually open to visitors Monday through Saturday. Check out hours and entry charges at westminster-abbey.org.
