Tour one the world's greatest castles with an expert guide

  • State Apartments

  • Windsor Town

  • Eton College

  • Runnymede and Magna Carta

  • The bustling town of Windsor is only a short drive west out of London, but takes the visitor back to a distant age of conquering kings, Royal hunting forests and gracious court life. For almost a thousand years Windsor Castle has been home to English monarchs, many of whom have left distinct traces in fortifications, gardens and splendid state apartments crammed with portraits, fine furnishings and lavish decorations.

    A stunning collection of porcelain from Sevres, Meissen and elsewhere, the bullet that killed Admiral Nelson, paintings by Breughel, Rembrandt, Canaletto, Rubens and many more, and the world’s most famous doll’s house are just a few of the varied and impressive treasures on display. The exquisite 15th Century Chapel in the castle precincts is the home of the Order of the Garter and the burial place of many English kings and queens, including Henry VIII, Charles I and the late Queen Mother.

    After visiting the Castle let us take you on a walking tour of the town that nestles against its walls; past Queen Victoria’s statue and Christopher Wren’s Guildhall where Charles and Camilla were married, through the busy shopping streets to the river. This is the Thames before it becomes an urban waterway, and we’ll have time to feed the many swans that gather by the bridge and boathouses at the foot of the town. There are many options for lunch - sandwiches, historic pubs or a restaurant over-looking the river.

    Across the river is Eton, a winding main street of ancient pubs and fascinating antique shops that leads to the famous College. Founded in 1441 this school has educated generations of Britain’s political and military leaders, and recently Princes William and Harry. It too has a superb late medieval chapel and the evocative College Hall, still with its original fireplaces and the carved names and initials of countless former scholars.

    From Eton we can tour the course of the river to picturesque Runnymede, where in 1215 King John set his seal to Magna Carta, which began this country’s long journey to constitutional government. Perhaps we’ll have time to visit Windsor Great Park and take a stroll in the 25 acre Savill Garden, with its stunning collection of azaleas, roses and rhododendrons, or a drive through the Thames Valley with its hidden villages.

    To be able to achieve such an itinerary you will need the services of a driver-guide. Luxury Vacations UK offer driver-guided tours of Windsor Castle and surrounding area.
