PRIVATE WINDSOR CASTLE AND HAMPTON COURT TOURS – TYPICAL ITINERARY
Your driver-guide will pick-you up from your central London hotel or place of residence at the specified time. We recommend 9am. After a fast-route from London, our Private Windsor Castle and Hampton Court Tours get up close to two of the most notable and famous buildings in the UK, where 1,000 years of royal history and drama come alive.
After a short walk through the small but delightful town of Windsor, we take personally guided tour of the largest and oldest continually inhabited castle in the world. First built in 1080, and set in thousands of acres of parkland, it was once described as the most romantic of castles. It is now regarded as the Queen’s home.
Not to be missed: the magnificent George Chapel (ten monarchs are buried here including Henry VIII), the opulent State Apartments (audio-guided) and the incredible Queen Mary’s Doll’s House. On certain days, you can also see the Changing of the Guard (much better than at Buckingham Palace!).
Your driver-guide will suggest appropriate lunch options on the day. Perhaps a village tea-room, riverside restaurant or traditional pub. Alternatively, you may want to bring a pre-packed lunch or just grab a sandwich. It’s your tour, it’s your choice. (Note: Private Windsor Castle and Hampton Court Tours price does not include food or refreshments).
A TUDOR PALACE
A personally guided tour of an historic national treasure, Hampton Court, the finest remaining Tudor Palace in the country (Henry VIII actually stole it!). Highlights include the authentic Tudor kitchens, the Great Hall, the Chapel Royal, and an extraordinary ancient clock.
A STUART PALACE
Hampton Court is actually two palaces in one, so we will also view the architectural legacy of the Stuart royal dynasty. Highlights include the Royal Apartments, an ancient working tennis court, and the magnificent gardens featuring the world’s oldest maze for you to get lost in!
Note: We recommend tickets for our Private Windsor Castle and Hampton Court Tours are bought in advance, to avoid lines. We can book them for you if you wish.
