What You Can Expect

Windsor Castle, Stonehenge and Oxford Custom Day Trip

See Christ Church College on your walking tour of Oxford

Leave London on your air-conditioned coach and travel west to Windsor, the home of Windsor Castle, an official residence of Queen Elizabeth II. Extending over 13 acres (five hectares), this imposing castle houses lavish State Apartments, Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House and magnificent St George’s Chapel, the burial place of King Henry VIII.

Buy an entrance ticket to the Castle from your guide on the coach, and head inside to view the State Apartments, St George’s Chapel and other highlights, all brought to life by audio guide commentary. The display of British pageantry that is the Changing of the Guard takes place in the Castle precincts on an almost daily basis, so you may catch this colorful morning ceremony if your tour takes place on one of the days it occurs and if you have purchased an entrance ticket to the Castle.

Alternatively, use your time to explore the town of Windsor and stroll around its quaint streets. You may also see the New or Old Guard of soldiers marching to the Castle if your tour coincides with a Changing of the Guard ceremony. Usually accompanied by a military band, the Guards march through central Windsor in their bright red tunics and bearskin helmets, making an impressive sight.

After around two hours in Windsor, head for Stonehenge. This UNESCO-listed stone circle rears dramatically from Salisbury Plain and is cloaked in mystery. Perhaps purchase an entrance ticket from your guide and take an audio-guided tour that delves into the stones’ spiritual importance and their associations with figures such as King Arthur and Merlin. Or view Stonehenge independently from outside and ponder its mysteries yourself as you take photos of this incredible prehistoric monument.

Later, continue to Oxford. Home to Britain’s oldest university, the colleges of this honey-stoned town inspired scholars such as Lewis Carroll and J R R Tolkien. Take an included walking tour to admire Christchurch College, the Bodleian Library and Sheldonian Theatre as you listen to your guide’s crystal-clear commentary on your Vox headphones.

Afterward, return to London where your tour ends with a drop-off at Victoria coach station.

Great tour! Tour guide was very informative, making the trip fascinating and fun! Great way to see Windsor Castle, Stonehenge and the grand buildings of Oxford in one day!

Rhys and Kieth were great. Rhys was our guide and Kieth was our driver. Rhys was very informative and though we are on strict schedule, he made sure we'll see the highlights of the attractions. There was a tube strike when we went back to London and Rhys and Kieth made sure that everyone can get back to our hotels with the alternative transportation.

Took the tour 3 years ago, was good. This time took my family, the tour guide was beyond excellent. He was so much more informative and really took time to show us Oxford. Recommend the tour, must have this tour guide again.

Great tour! Loved seeing Stonehenge, Windsor and Oxford. The tour guide was nice and it was great to see the English countryside! Wish there was a little more time to have a proper lunch at one of the destinations but the sandwiches from E.A.T were good :

My husband and I had an awesome time on this tour. PLEASE NOTE: You will need to pay the entrance fees in cash for Windsor Castle and Stonehenge well worth it but we didn't realize until we got on the tour bus and had to use most of our cash. We had a great driver and tour guide and it was such a fun day. Great way to see all of the sights, we highly recommend!
