What You Can Expect

Windsor Castle Tour from London with Lunch

Enjoy lunch at the Kensington Palace Orangery

After a complimentary pickup from your central London hotel, you’ll be off to Windsor Castle, where more than 900 years of royal history awaits! From William the Conqueror all the way through to the current Queen, successive monarchs have lived here and left their mark on what is now one of the largest continuously occupied castles in the world. Tour Windsor Castle independently, taking time to see St George’s Chapel and the formal State Apartments in all their lavish glory.

Windsor itself is a pretty town full of traditional shops and historic pubs. It was in one of these pubs that Shakespeare was said to have written his play The Merry Widows of Windsor.

After spending your morning in Windsor, enjoy your journey back through the English countryside on a comfortable, air-conditioned coach. Your tour ends in Knightsbridge (central London), at the cozy Tea Clipper pub, situated right next to the famous department store Harrods, where you can enjoy a traditional fish and chips lunch.

Please note: Lunch may be taken at alternative venues in Central London

We had a great time. Being able to visit the State Rooms in Windsor Castle was informative and an eye-opener. Viewing St.George's Chapel brought back memories of a visit in 1981 and also what I had forgotten. Good tour guide and nice to finish with a Fish and Chip lunch at the Tattersalls Inn.

the begining of this tour started out shocking,the day before this tour i rang the tour operator and he said to be in the foyer of our hotel at 7.40am which we arrived at and the person that greeted us was rude and arrogant and told us we were late which i took offence to and later on the bus he said to everyone on board it was like rounding up stray cats and that the only good tourist was a dead one.we spoke to some americans on the bus and they said he was the same with them.after we transfered to our tour bus things changed dramatically and the tour was the best on our european tour,exceptional

The Windsor Castle Tour was great. Our Tour guide kept us moving so we could see most everything in the castle and the church in the short amount of time allotted to us. Could have spent all day exploring the site. Our tour guide David kept us amused with his British dry sense of humor and his exaggerations and falsehoods. Overall he kept us entertained. The lunch stop after the tour was good.

David was an amazing guide! So many interesting stories and facts which made the tour that much more enjoyable and interesting. Wouldn't have been the same without him!

Lovely trip to the castle. Appreciated the extra hour this tour allowed; we were able to take our time. The fish n chips lunch at the pub was delightful!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

I would give this tour a 5 out of 5 for the venue alone. The castle and St. Georges chapel were in short amazing and I would even do it again. However we were on a time restriction and most people in my group were going on to Stonehenge and Bath etc. I was to wait an hour for another bus to take me back to London. Therefore I had plenty of time to look around. We had to wait so long to get into the castle that it really didn't allow very much time to look around. I felt very sorry for the others who waited patiently. There must be an easier way of moving people through the security checks.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2013

Excellent, Windsor was fantastic and Harrods lunch was brilliant and exceeded expectations. Highly recommended.
