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.
