Meet Your Guide at Waterloo Station

Meet your guide at Waterloo Station in central London and with your pre-booked round trip tickets, you’ll leisurely board your train to the quaint English village of Windsor. Settle comfortably into your seat as the scenic British countryside drifts by, accompanied by your guide’s entertaining introduction to Windsor and its proud royal heritage - Windsor Castle is the longest-occupied palace in Europe, having housed all British monarchs since Henry I, and is still a favorite weekend retreat of Queen Elizabeth II.

Explore With Your Enthusiastic Guide

Once you arrive, you’ll be eager to explore with your enthusiastic guide. Meander through the cobbled lanes bordered by Tudor townhouses and peek through traditional blown-glass windows as your guide offers a fascinating insight into living with the Royal Family as your neighbors. However, they are not the only beloved English figures to have left a footprint on this picturesque town. Shakespeare walked these very streets and used them as the setting for his play The Merry Wives of Windsor.

Now it’s time to see where their grandmother lives. Windsor Castle is a treasure trove of royal history. The splendor of this palace will reveal itself to you as you are expertly steered through its rooms by the official audio tour.

Windsor Castle Attractions

Explore the ornate State Apartments where visiting dignitaries are hosted among artworks by Rembrandt and Rubens. Delight in Queen Mary’s dollhouse, a perfect miniature of an aristocratic home lavishly furnished with the finest of tiny handmade artifacts. Admire the intricate Gothic architecture of St. George’s Chapel, final resting place of monarchs including Henry VIII. At the turn of every palatial corridor, another royal jewel lays waiting to be unearthed by you.

After visiting the castle, you’ll be free to remain in Windsor to explore to your heart’s content before you return to London using your flexible train tickets.
