Spend the morning in London how you please, then take an afternoon tour to Windsor and Runnymede. You'll be back in London in time for dinner, after touring the home of the Royal Family and visiting one of the foundation stones of democracy.
This delightful afternoon tour begins at Windsor Castle, the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world. The castle was built 900 years ago, and continues to dominate the delightful town that has grown up around it.
You get a real sense of British history at Windsor Castle, founded by William the Conqueror just a day's march from London. You'll see the lavishly decorated State Apartments, containing priceless furniture in glorious colors, and St. George's Chapel, home to the 14th-century Order of the Royal Garter, Britain's senior chivalric order.(on 12 - 23 January, 19 March, 7 April and 13 - 16 June the State Apartments will be closed, on these dates you will visit Queen Mary's Dolls House).
Departing Windsor, the tour continues to magnificent Runnymede, where King John met his barons in 1215 and agreed to seal the Magna Carta. This action was to have a profound influence on rights and freedoms, not only in England but across the Western world.
