Begin with a pickup from Golden Tours Visitors Centre in central London, and then take in the beautiful English countryside as you drive west to Windsor, a postcard-perfect town best known as the home of Windsor Castle.
Head inside the stately castle — whose grounds stretch some 13 acres (5 hectares) — and make the most of around two hours of free time to explore independently. Plug into your included audio guide and learn about the castle’s history as you check off the royal residences most impressive highlights.
See Queen Mary’s Doll House, created by British architect Sir Edwin Lutyets; explore the lavishly decorated State Apartments; admire masterpieces by Rembrandt, Leonardo da Vinci and other luminaries; and watch the famous Changing of the Guard ceremony (time permitting), which takes place daily.
When the time comes, meet your coach at the prearranged time and place, and travel back to London.
