Highlights
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide and small group at a central London location in the early afternoon.
    Then, board a train to the historical town of Windsor, situated on the River Thames east of London. Hear about Windsor’s proud royal history during the journey, and on arrival, set off into the charming streets with your guide.
    Stroll down cobbled lanes past half-timbered Tudor houses as your guide sheds light on the town’s past, and world-famous landmark, Windsor Castle. Hear how William Shakespeare set his play 'The Merry Wives of Windsor,' here, and take a look around neighboring Eton, home of the famous Eton College.
    Pass the school as you hear how it was attended by figures such as George Orwell and Ian Fleming, as well as the royal princes William and Harry, and hear about life at this boarding establishment, including some of its more eccentric traditions.
    Next, visit Windsor Castle, Europe’s longest occupied royal palace, and a residence of all British monarchs since Henry I. Today, Queen Elizabeth II favors the castle as a weekend retreat.
    Enjoy an audio-guided tour of the opulent State Apartments, where visiting dignitaries are welcomed in halls hung with priceless works by artists including Rembrandt and Rubens.
    See Queen Mary’s Doll's House, a miniature version of an aristocratic house, and visit St. George’s Chapel, a Gothic masterpiece that houses a number of royal tombs including that of Henry VIII.
    Your tour concludes when you leave the castle. With your flexible train tickets, opt to return to London straight away or to linger in Windsor further before catching a later return train at your leisure.
