Dating back to the 11th century and housing the remains of the Kings Charles I and Henry VIII alongside other cultural wonders, the world-famous royal residence of Windsor Castle is a must-see. As both the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world, Windsor should be top on any tourist’s to-do list.
With a dominating position on the surrounding skyline, the site boasts military feature such as its vaunted War Rooms alongside a finer, more luxurious aspect – the sumptuous State Apartments, for example, with their royal collection of fine bone china. The exquisite living quarters allow our groups to get an insight into the royal lifestyle; with Windsor Castle still in use as an Official Residence of the Queen, it continues to play an important role in the life and heritage of the British monarchy.
St George’s Chapel – home of the heraldic crests and banners of the Most Noble Order of the Garter – provides an additional element of excitement to the tour. We’ll explore the seat and the symbols of one of England and the United Kingdom’s most exclusive and prestigious honours, awarded as a personal gift of the Queen. Something that many tourists miss, but that we always enjoy sharing with our visitors.
Perhaps no other site in England can bring together the shared beauty and mystery of Stonehenge. Our tour allows you to hear the theories and draw your own conclusions: could Stonehenge be a site of astronomical importance? A pre-Roman temple? An alien launching pad? What is certain is that the archaeological and engineering importance of this breathtaking site is second to none. During your visit you will have access to the multi-million-pound Visitor Information Centre, where you can see the most cutting-edge modern science and research on this ancient landmark.
Bath has been described as the Monte Carlo and the Las Vegas of Georgian England, and this tour gives you a comfortable morning to explore the city. Everything about the town’s imposing Palladian-style architecture was designed to make a striking visual impact – something that it still achieves today, hundreds of years on from its construction. This UNESCO World Heritage Site never fails to wow visitors from around the world. Our tour of Bath takes us to the best parts, starting with Pulteney Bridge, then covering Bath Abbey, the Circus and not forgetting visiting the imposing Royal Crescent. Our knowledgeable guides will also point out the Celtic links between Bath and Stonehenge, so you leave not only with some fantastic photos, but with a real understanding of the town and its landscape.
