Follow in the footsteps of British royalty on a tour of Windsor Castle, just over an hour's drive from London. Your half-day gives you an inside look at the many estates of Windsor Castle, home of Queen Elizabeth II, including St George's Chapel and the lavish State Apartments. End your tour with a return to London for a typical English lunch at the famous Harrods store.


Highlights

  • Complete tour by bus/coach
  • Professional, friendly and informative guide
  • Lunch included
  • Vegetarian dishes available

After a complimentary pickup from your central London hotel, you'll be dropped off at Windsor Castle, where over 900 years of royal history awaits! This majestic castle is the scene of 900 years of British history, and where generations of the British royal family have conducted their business. Take an independent tour of Windsor Castle, taking time to see St George's Chapel and the formal State Apartments in all their sumptuous glory.


Follow up the morning sightseeing with a guided tour of the town of Windsor itself. Lasting about an hour, the guided tour will help you discover the merits of this delightful royal city, which is full of traditional shops and historic pubs. It was in one of these pubs that Shakespeare wrote his play "The Merry Widows of Windsor".

On the way back to London there will be a brief stop at the historic site of Runnymede, where King John signed the Magna Carta in 1215. This was an important document that held some power far from the monarchy, and gave more rights and freedoms to the British people.


Your tour will end in Knightsbridge (London), at the famous Harrods store. Harrods offers nothing but decadence, and your meal will be no exception – you'll enjoy a delicious two-course meal in the store's elegant Georgian Restaurant. Your half-day will end after lunch, but you can stay at Harrods to digest your meal as you browse the popular stalls for designer food and clothing.
