Chauffeured Private Tour to Windsor Castle and Town


We leave from your hotel in London by car at around 9:00 am and drive 45 min to Windsor. There we will visit the oldest Castle in the world which has been a royal residence for 900 years.
We will have a look at the Queens private apartments outside and visit the grand rooms of the Queens state apartments inside. Also worth a visit is Queen Mary's Miniature Dolls House which was a gift from the nation to Queen Elisabeth's grandmother.

Then we will go inside the magnificent St. George' s Chapel where the knights of the Order of the Garter hold their yearly ceremony and where many British kings and queens are buried (including the famous Tudor King Henry VIII with his favourite wife).

There may even be an opportunity to see the change of the Guard. We can add in a short walk in the old and quaint Windsor town to Royal Windsor Park from where the Queen rides to nearby Ascot every year. There are some great photo opportunities there.
