Discover two Royal Palaces in this full-day private tour from London
This tour provides you with an opportunity to visit two stunning royal residences, a royal castle and royal palace. At Windsor Castle, our focus will be the royal family and the history of the monarchy. At Hampton Court we will focus on the reign of King Henry VIII, one of our most important and well known kings of England. Neither of these sites are very far from Central London, which means we can avoid having to spend too much time in the car.
9am - 10 am Drive to Windsor Castle, which is only twenty miles from Central London.
10am-12pm Visit Windsor Castle (Queen Mary's Doll House, The State Apartments, St George's Chapel)
12pm Have lunch in Windsor. We can also have lunch in Eton, if you are interested in seeing our most famous 'public school'.

2pm - 4pm Visit Hampton Court Palace (The Great Hall, Chapel, Kitchens, Gardens and Maze)
