Experience the pomp and pageantry, royal splendour, and traditions of Royal Windsor and Eton on this lovely half-day guided private tour. You’ll walk in and around Windsor Castle – the Queen’s favourite residence, where she and His Royal Highness the late Prince Philip were quarantined during the pandemic. It was known affectionately as HMS Bubble!

Windsor is a working royal castle, and you’ll visit the state apartments, where Her Majesty receives visiting dignitaries and heads of state. You’ll see Queen Mary's exquisite dollhouse - inclusive of a library, globe, and leatherback chairs, which took over three years to complete and learn about working royal life. 

Your expert guide will show you around the magnificent St George’s Chapel – another favourite of the Royal Family as a more intimate setting than Westminster Abbey in London. His Royal Highness Prince Harry of Wales was married to Ms Meghan Markle here, as was HRH Princess Eugenie to Jack Brooksbank. 

Most recently it was the chosen venue for the regal yet incredibly moving funeral of Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh. Prince Philip was the Queen’s husband of 73 years – and the longest-serving royal consort of all time. 

The chapel is also the burial place of several famous British monarchs and their consorts, including Henry VIII and Charles I.

Coming down the hill and over the river, you will leave Windsor and enter the impossibly quaint town of Eton. See the exterior of Eton College (not open to the public), where you will find yourself walking in the footsteps of 20 of the country’s prime ministers, Oscar winners such as Eddie Redmayne, writers such as Ian Fleming, the author of the James Bond novels and Princes William and Harry.

 Step into one of the country's most famous tailors, where the college's uniforms are made, and perhaps learn to tie to the illustrious 'Windsor knot'. Enjoy popping your head into the array of different antique, art and quirky independent shops, and enjoy a relaxing and scenic drive back to London. 

Please note: As Windsor Castle is a working royal palace, sometimes the entire Castle or the State Apartments within the Castle need to be closed at short notice. We will endeavour to be in touch with you as soon as we have this information.
