Please report at the meeting point 15 minutes before the start time. This is mandatory to allow time for pre-departure briefing.
The tour returns to Victoria Train Station.
Windsor Castle has been an official residence of the royal family for more than 900 years. With its mystifying formations, Stonehenge has fascinated visitors for centuries, while Oxford, home to the world-famous Oxford University, has inspired many note-worthy scholars for decades, with C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien just some of the college’s former alumni.
You will be picked up from Victoria Coach Station (Gate 1-5) at 08:45am and travel in a deluxe motor coach, accompanied by a guide to visit Windsor, Stonehenge and Oxford.
At each destination, you can either spend the time at your leisure or choose from the activities offered by your guide on the day. If you choose these activities, simply pay direct on the day of the tour.
In Windsor, your guide will give you the option to visit Windsor Castle (entrance purchased from the guide on the tour day) or you will have free time to explore this beautifully historic town at your own pace.
Continue to Stonehenge where you can take an audio-guided Stonehenge tour. This would also be the perfect time for lunch. Your guide will recommend an elegant restaurant overlooking the site. Again, if you wish you can simply explore the site on your own.
Lastly you will visit Oxford. You can choose to join a fascinating free Oxford tour; you will see Christchurch College (entrance to Christ Church can be purchased from your guide directly) where Harry Potter was filmed, the Bodleian Library and the Sheldonian Theatre. There will also be free time for you to explore Oxford at your leisure.
After your visit to Oxford you will be taken back to London. You will arrive at Victoria Station at around 7:00pm.
