A half day in Windsor Castle with an official castle guide.


Come on a journey of Royal history, ceremony and tradition. Learn about England's Royal lineage with a visit to the world's most famous castle, home to the Kings and Queens of England for nearly a thousand years.

Set on the banks of the Thames this magnificent castle overlooks the towns of Windsor and Eton.

Stroll with me through 1000 years of history as we take a tour through the Queen's preferred residence. We will visit the famous State rooms, the magnificent St. George's Chapel where the Royal wedding will be held, and see one of the most exquisite dolls houses ever made.

Windsor castle is a must see for those visiting London and can easily be done in a half day.
This tour is perfect for those wishing to maximise their day with a London experience followed by some time in the leafy suburbs of Windsor.

I will be quite happy to meet you at a central London location before journeying by train to the Castle.

Plenty of information on Windsor and a thoroughly enjoyable tour marred only by rain. Nicholas is a great guide.
