Your Experience

Wander Into Her Majesty’s Favorite Weekend Residence

Steeped in history, Windsor Castle perches proudly on a lush wooded hill overlooking the Thames. Once you assemble at the designated meeting point, you will be taken to the Windsor Castle in an air-conditioned wifi enabled coach. When you arrive, you will enjoy a fascinating glimpse at the lavish State Apartments, home to priceless artworks by Rembrandt and Leonardo da Vinci. You will also be given a handy multilingual audio guide in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, Russian and Spanish. This tour is unescorted and you will spend approximately 2 hours in Windsor Castle, giving you time to explore at your own pace and breathe in the Royal family’s grandeur.

Wander Around the Traditional St George’s Chapel

Visit St. George’s Chapel, the atmospheric final resting place of former monarchs including Henry VIII and his favorite wife Jane Seymour, Queen Mary, and Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. See the memorials and spend some quiet time wandering around this traditional chapel.

By the end of your adventure in Windsor, you won’t just have “seen” Windsor’s most famous sights; you’ll have discovered their histories, stories, and what makes them so notable.
