This is the perfect tour for anyone who wants to see how a royal family lives. You’ll tour Buckingham Palace, home to Britain’s monarchs for nearly 200 years, and wander around Windsor Castle, the Queen’s favourite weekend residence.
Buckingham Palace is open for only 8 weeks a year, so this is an opportunity not to be missed! You’ll marvel at the splendor of the rooms, used on official occasions by The Queen to entertain her guests. You’ll be dazzled by the beautiful ballroom and throne room, before completing your royal tour with a walk through the stunning south garden.
Meanwhile, Windsor Castle perches proudly on a lush wooded hill overlooking the Thames. Dating back to Norman times, with sweeping landscaped gardens and the turreted Round Tower, it’s easy to see why it’s the Queen’s favourite weekend residence.
Enjoy a fascinating through-the-keyhole peek at the lavish State Apartments, home to priceless artworks by Rembrandt and Leonardo da Vinci, and visit St. George’s Chapel, the atmospheric final resting place of former monarchs, including the much-married Henry VIII. You can visit Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House, a truly incredible structure complete with working lifts, running water, electricity and wine bottles, all in miniature!
The Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle Tour takes you to two magnificent royal residences.
The adventure begins when you meet the local tour operator’s representative at Victoria.
Our special timed entry ensures a breath-taking visit to the official residence of Britain’s sovereigns since 1837. You will arrive at the Visitor Entrance on Buckingham Palace Road, where you will be welcomed by members of the Warden team, deposit your bags and collect a complimentary audio tour.
After visiting the 19 State Rooms and the Special Exhibition for 1953 coronation of Queen Elizabeth II you will walk out into the Palace Garden. Before leaving you can enjoy a walk along the south side of the Palace garden, past the famous lake.
After the Buckingham Palace Tour, please make your way back to the Visitor Center in Victoria and check in for the ‘Simply Windsor’ tour at 1:45pm. Your driver will take you straight to Windsor for your visit. This tour is unescorted but, on arrival at Windsor, audio guides will be available in different languages (English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, Russian, and Spanish).
Magnificent Windsor is the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world and the Queen's favorite weekend home. Its rich history spans almost 1000 years. Highlights of your Windsor visit will include the following:
• Magnificent State Apartments furnished with treasures from the Royal Collection
• St George's Chapel (one of the loveliest ecclesiastical buildings in England and the burial place of 10 monarchs including Henry VIII)
• Queen Mary's Dolls House, an exquisite masterpiece in miniature
After enjoying Windsor Castle and its glorious grounds you will be driven back to London and will be dropped at Kensington (Gloucester Road) at approximately 7:00pm.
