1981 Royal Wedding - Charles and Diana
29th July 1981: Charles and Diana marry
Crowds of 600,000 people filled the streets of London to catch a glimpse of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer on their wedding day.
The couple were married at St Paul's Cathedral before an invited congregation of 3,500 and an estimated global TV audience of 750 million - making it the most popular programme ever broadcast.

Britons enjoyed a national holiday to mark the occasion.

Lady Diana, 20, arrived almost on time for the 1120 BST ceremony after making the journey from Clarence House in the Glass Coach with her father, Earl Spencer.

Brewing first started in May 1981 under the name Paradise Brewery, named after its location, the Paradise Bird Park. A 5 barrel brewplant is used. The brewery closed for a period in 1982 and brews mainly only in the summer months when tourist trade is higher. The name was changed to Wheal Ale in 1995. It is understood that brewing has ceased, but that it may resume in the future.
