Private chauffeured tour with Private Guide to the Queen's favourite Castle and Henry VIII's Palace


London is wonderful, but sometimes it is great to be able to spend a day exploring a bit further afield. Just an hour from central London are King Henry VIII's Tudor palace at Hampton Court, together with Christopher Wren's Baroque palace and its spectacular formal gardens, and Royal Windsor Castle, the oldest continually inhabited castle in the world set in the historic town of Windsor.

I will take you in a chauffeured car from your central London Hotel to explore both these places in a day, stopping en route for a pub or sandwich lunch and seeing some of England's lovely countryside along the way.

As a registered Blue Badge Tour Guide I am trained and authorised to guide you around both these historic sites.

Itinerary

You will be collected in a private chauffeured car from your central London hotel and driven to Hampton Court Palace and Windsor Castle.

At Hampton Court we will see Henry VIII's splendid Tudor Palace including its old kitchens, the Great Hall and a replica of the king's crown, before touring the 17th Century Baroque Palace built by Sir Christopher Wren for King William and Queen Mary. We will also explore the glorious gardens that border the River Thames.

At Windsor Castle we will visit the magnificent State Rooms, where banquets and royal ceremonies have been held for 100s of years, and St George;s Chapel, burial place of many monarchs from King Henry VIII to King George VI. We should also have some time in the town of Windsor which has great shops! We will stop en route for coffee, lunch, tea and pub breaks as preferred.

NB Windsor Castle is a working residence of the Queen of England and occasionally closes for state visits and other events. Any closures will be confirmed at the time of booking.
