See where the Queen lives at Windsor, where Druids once worshipped at Stonehenge, and where Oxford scholars study on a day trip from London. Your comprehensive tour takes you to three of England's most popular attractions in one day.
Over 900 years of royal history are waiting for you in Windsor Castle, perched high above the River Thames just outside London. Windsor Castle is the largest continuously occupied castle in the world, with points of interest including the splendor of St. George's Chapel and the State Apartments. After your visit to Windsor, you'll take a drive through Runnymede, where King John signed the Magna Carta.
During the day you will stop for lunch in a charming English pub complete with thatched roof (optional, not included in tour cost).
The most famous prehistoric monument in the world, and now a World Heritage Site, Stonehenge stands alone in the vast emptiness of Salisbury plain. The site's origins date back nearly 5,000 years and it has long been a site of spiritual worship. There will be plenty of time to marvel at this ancient feat of engineering and design, and you'll also see the great stone circle at Avebury.
The final part of the tour is spent exploring Oxford, one of the world's greatest academic institutions. Your guide will take you on a walking tour and tell you about the traditions of college life in the town's charming honey-colored stone buildings set around ivy-clad quadrangles. While in Oxford you can enjoy a traditional cream tea in a tea shop.
Please note: From time to time, State Apartment at Windsor Castle will be closed. Tours will continue to operate and guests are encouraged to enjoy the extensive Castle Precincts, St George's Chapel (except on Sundays) and Queen Mary's Dolls' House.
