  • Overview & Itinerary
    Overview
    Towering majestically above the Thames on a wooded bluff, Windsor Castle is a magnificent sight.

    Dating back to William the Conqueror, its history-soaked walls have been a popular retreat for generations of British monarchs. On this afternoon tour from London you can enjoy its many splendors for yourself.

    Admire the gilded glory of the opulent State Apartments with their priceless masterpieces by artists such as Rembrandt, Rubens, Leonardo da Vinci, and Van Dyck. See Queen Mary's Dolls' House, a truly incredible structure complete with working lifts, running water, electricity and wine bottles, all in miniature!

    Visit St. George's Chapel, one of the most beautiful ecclesiastical buildings in England and the final resting place of 10 former monarchs including Henry VIII. And stop to admire the Albert Memorial Chapel with its gorgeous marble panels and magnificent vaulted ceiling, a refurbishment carried out by Queen Victoria in memory of her beloved Prince Consort.

    Itinerary

    Por favor preséntese en el punto de salida 15 minutos antes de la hora de salida.

    Viajará a bordo de un cómodo autobús hasta Windsor, que se encuentra aproximadamente a 37 kms del centro de Londres. Un guía de habla hispana e inglesa le acompañará durante todo el recorrido.

    El Castillo de Windsor es una Residencia Oficial de Su Majestad la Reina y se dice que es su lugar de retiro favorito para el fin de semana. Con una historia de más de 1000 años, es el castillo ocupado más grande del mundo. La estructura original fortificada fue construida por Guillermo el Conquistador aproximadamente en 1080 como parte de las defensas de Londres. El castillo gradualmente ha llegado a ser una famosa residencial Real debido a la buena caza en el bosque cercano.

    El Castillo ha mejorado y se ha ampliado durante los siglos hasta crear el impresionante edificio que se ve hoy en día. Entre las zonas que más destacan se encuentran los Apartamentos de Estado, la Capilla St. George y la Casa de Muñecas de la Reina María.

    Apartamentos de Estados: Estas magníficas habitaciones están ricamente decoradas y amuebladas con tesoros de la Colección Real. Eche un vistazo a las maravillosas pinturas en el Vestidor del rey, incluido un autorretrato de Rubens, El famoso triple retrato de Carlos I de Van Dyck y "La Madre del Artista" de Rembrandt. Hay también pequeños artículos de interés como por ejemplo, una vitrina en el Gran Vestíbulo que contiene la bala que mató al Almirante Nelson en la batalla de Trafalgar en 1805.

    Capilla de St George: Fundada en el S. XIII y ampliada durante los siglos, la Capilla de St George es un impresionante edificio Gótico (a la par con la capilla de Henri VII en la Abadía de Westminster) y el lugar de entierro de 10 monarcas. Adyacente a esta se encuentra la Capilla Memorial Albert con exquisitos paneles de mármol, mandada hacer por la reina Victoria en conmemoración de su amado marido Albert. Una clave de su remodelación fue el magnífico techo abovedado, que incluye mosaicos de oro creados en Venecia. Casa de Muñecas de la Reina María: esta exquisita Casa de Muñecas fue diseñada por el reconocido arquitecto Sir Edwin Lutyens en 1924. ¡Muchas de las miniaturas fueron hechas por los mismos que realizan los artículos a tamaño real. Incluso las botellas en la bodega de vino contienen vino de reserva real!

    El Tour finaliza en el punto de inicio.
