    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!
