What makes this tour special

Located on the South Bank of the River Thames, the town is dominated by Windsor Castle, the largest and oldest inhabited castle in the world. The late Queen of England made it her home and it was her favourite holiday residence, and yes, it’s worth all the fuss.

On this private day trip, you will:

Embark on a Windsor Day Trip in a classic black cab and discover the charming town of Windsor, situated just 60 minutes to escape the tube rush of Central London. 

Before heading to Windsor and Eton on your day trip, you'll make a stop at the historic Runnymede Field, the location where King John signed the Magna Carta in 1215, the first-ever document to place limitations on the powers of the monarchy and establish the principle of the rule of law. You'll feel the weight of the momentous events that took place here and appreciate the role they played in shaping modern democratic society.

Your journey continues in Windsor, where you will enjoy a self-guided tour of the majestic Windsor Castle, the official residence of the British monarch, where you'll get a glimpse into the luxurious lives of the royal family. 

You'll have the opportunity to admire the stunning architecture, lavish furnishings, and works of art by world-renowned artists, and to see the grand State Apartments, the magnificent St George's Chapel, and the beautiful gardens.

After your visit to Windsor Castle, you'll have free time to explore the quaint town of Eton, just across the river. Home to the prestigious Eton College, this town boasts a rich history and charming architecture, perfect for a leisurely stroll. 

You will also stop by one of the many local cafes for a cup of tea and a slice of cake or explore the many boutique shops for unique souvenirs. 

This day trip is the perfect way to escape the hustle and bustle of London and immerse yourself in the beauty and history of this charming corner of England.

It's important to note that your driver guide is not allowed to accompany you inside Windsor Castle or provide any commentary during your visit. However, they can offer helpful advice and recommendations on the must-see areas of the castle that you can explore on your own during your self-guided tour.
