Visit the 900-year old castle home to monarchs and enjoy lunch in a Windsor town restaurant.
A private guided tour of Windsor Castle. This historic royal residence has belonged continuously to the sovereigns of England since the 11th C.
In 1348, Edward III founded the Most Noble Order of the Garter, Britain's highest order of chivalry. This order has its home here at Windsor and the knights worshiped at St George's Chapel - and their modern counterparts still do to this day.
PLEASE NOTE: St George's Chapel (where Harry and Meghan were married on the 19th May 2018), is not open for sightseeing on Sundays.
Afterwards, lunch at a river-side restaurant, or one of the many places to eat in the town, before heading back to London's Paddington station.

Excellent tour of Windsor Castle, St. George's cathedral and grounds. Vivien was gracious and accommodating after I made a mistake meeting her for this tour. She loves the history of Windsor Castle and it showed in her enthusiasm and knowledge. She guided our group of 10 people confidently and after a great half day she made reservations for us at a perfect local restaurant for lunch. Excellent.
