What To Expect
As you travel, hear tales of this 1,000-year-old palace-fortress and how it ranks as the world’s oldest occupied castle. Originally built by William the Conqueror in the 11th century, it’s still used by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as a weekend residence and for state ceremonies.
On arrival, head inside to explore independently. Stroll around the opulent chambers of the State Apartments, many adorned with paintings by Rembrandt and Canaletto, and learn how they have been home to 39 monarchs. See other highlights and be sure to visit the castle's St. George’s Chapel, an echoing Gothic masterpiece that holds the tombs of 10 English monarchs, including the infamous Henry VIII.
Afterward, enjoy free time to stroll around Windsor town, set on the banks of the Thames River. Perhaps browse for souvenirs in the quaint shops and see the house where William Shakespeare is said to have penned his play 'The Merry Wives of Windsor.' After your visit to Windsor, drive back to London and arrive at the upscale neighborhood of Knightsbridge in the center of the city. Here, head inside the St. George's Tavern in Victoria, and sit down to a traditional, hearty English lunch of fish and chips. Your tour then ends here after your meal.
