What You Can Expect

Windsor Castle and Hampton Court Palace Day Trip from London

See the spectacular Windsor Castle on your full day tour

Depart from a central London location in a comfortable, air-conditioned coach and enjoy your scenic surroundings on the short journey to Windsor Castle, an official residence of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Admire the quaint architecture of the quintessentially English town of Windsor and then disembark your coach to discover the impressive fortification further. 

Receive your entrance tickets from your guide and then explore the opulent interiors and verdant grounds of the castle independently, for approximately two hours. Revitalize with lunch at your own expense and then return to your vehicle at a time pre-arranged with your guide. 

Next, continue to Hampton Court Palace to get acquainted with the former residence of Henry VIII, a tyrannical monarch famed for beheading his wives. Enjoy more free time to explore at your leisure, ensuring you delve into the rich historical heritage of the palace and its regal inhabitants. Lose yourself in the Hampton Court maze or revitalize with a cup of English tea in the Titlyard Café before returning to your coach. 

Relax during the return journey to London Victoria, where the tour concludes.

Very enjoyable and informative tour. Our tour guide, Ronald, had a vast knowledge of the two sites, particularly Hampton Court, and his professorial delivery added to the enjoyment of visiting these two important cultural sites. He also recommended a sandwich shop in Windsor which had amazing sandwiches, some of the best we had in awhile.

Highly recommend this outstanding tour.

Enjoyable, particularly Windsor Castle, with an excellent audio tour and organized process. Important not to waste time eating, though, it took all the time we had to see what we came to see! Hampton Court less organized but the gardens were beautiful. Our guide was engaging and funny, and the tour itself was very well run.

We love the tour. Windsor castle was the best. I wish we had more time at Windsor than Hampton Court.
Before our trip we were thinking Hampton Court would be the best. But our hearts went to WIndsor Castle.
The bus trip was good. Clean bus and great tour guide. I would definitely take another tour from your company again. Thanks for a great time.

Oh how I loved this tour. We had a great tour guide, Jose. We were able to see two great castles/palaces and experience history. While Windsor castle is beautiful and full of friendly guides, the true winner for me was Hampton Court. The experience was beyond fantastic. There were actors who guided us through the history and experiences of the Palace. The actors were excellent and interacted brilliantly with the group. If there is one must see while in London, I'd recommend Hampton Court.

Very fun tour. Both are very different. Drink wine from fountain at Hampton court and get lost in its hedge maze.

This was a great day - the ladies were informative, friendly and the tour was comprehensive. The timing was good too-we had plenty of time at each of the stops. And you get a little tour around London as well, which was a good introduction to London.

Jose was an excellent guide with lots of added information and never made you feel hurried.
Wanted to see Windsor for a long time and enjoyed. Didn't make a wise decision for lunch in the pub right across from castle, however.
Hampton Court was a good tour but harder to fit the pieces together between the two dynasties that built there. Wish there had been a castle plan with an overlay in red of the reconstructed/renovated areas. But loved seeing it.
