With a spectacular setting on the acreage miles of the Great Park, Windsor is a picturesque, traditional English country town that is home to Her Majesty's favorite country residence, Windsor Castle, the world's oldest and largest inhabited castle.
Optional extensions to Eton/Runnymede and Stonehenge.
Windsor is a beautiful countryside town, home to the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world, Windsor Castle. As well as being one of Her Majesty's favourite residences, it has for over 900 years been at the heart of Royal Family life, with 40 sovereigns having lived within its walls.
After being transferred to Windsor, the day begins with your personal guide taking your party on a private guided tour of historical Windsor, the traditional English village on the banks of the River Thames.
Hear tales and secrets from the past as you take in the medieval cobbled streets and Georgian and Victorian architecture. Watch the Changing of the Guard*** as the new guard makes its way into the castle grounds, before enjoying a personally guided tour through the Castle precincts.
Your professional tour guide will be able to escort you through both the Lower and Middle Ward of the Castle, including a special visit through St George's Chapel**, the location of Prince Harry and Meghan's royal wedding before having time to visit the State Apartments* and Queen Mary's Dolls House at your leisure.
Extend your visit to the Magical Windsor Tour (7 hours) for a full day experience in the Royal Berkshire countryside.
In the morning travel to Windsor by Runnymede in search of King John and Robin Hood, to see the famous site of Magna Carta, the basis of freedom under law.
Following your tour of Windsor, your personal guide will escort you across the River Thames to take a walking tour of the famous neighbouring town of Eton. Reknown around the world for its traditional antique stores, Eton is also home to one of the country's most famous schools dating back to 1440, Eton College. It is here where Princes William and Harry, as well as many of this country's prime ministers, have been educated.
A popular option with the Windsor Tour (5 hours) is to extend for a further 4 hours to make a complete day experience with a visit to mystical Stonehenge.
Set deep within the plains of Wiltshire, Stonehenge is arguably the most important prehistoric site in the United Kingdom.
Reminding us of lost civilisations from a time long gone by, Stonehenge continues to mystify. Just how was this feat achieved, a perfect circle with stones weighing up to 50 tonnes, all without machinery? Discover your answer to these questions and much more with a visit to this World Heritage Site.
Unlike other tours, the experience is not just an orientation service where you are left "to wander". It is also not just a drive where all the time is spent inside the vehicle:
Our tours are fully escorted, whether with a professional driver-guide at standard level (one person) or with your own sightseeing team at the VIP levels (professional tour guide plus, in addition, a chauffeur), so that you never miss a beat.
There are no parking problems or walking long distances to see the sights. The curbside service stops right by the attractions, away from the masses.
At standard level photo stops are made with commentary throughout. At our VIP levels with your own expert guide and extra chauffeur, stops are made at the key landmarks for you to go outside on walking tours led by your guide to sightsee in detail, hearing anecdotes and stories about London's past and present, while your chauffeur driven vehicle waits with no parking worries.
Put simply - there is no better way to help make the most of your valuable sightseeing time.
Tickets with fast track entry to avoid the majority of the lines at Windsor Castle are available on this tour.
Tickets with fast track entry to Stonehenge are also available on this tour if including the optional Stonehenge extension.
