This tour will take you to three of the United Kingdom’s must-see places; Windsor Castle, Stonehenge and Oxford.
Windsor 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’ Tolkien just some of the college’s former alumni.
Windsor Castle is, unfortunately, closed on these dates: April 9 & 10, May 5 and June 14 & 15
On the above days, you will be offered the tour as scheduled. However, since you will not be able to enter the Castle, you will be taken on a guided walking tour. Covering the turrets and the outer walls of the castle, the long walk (which is used for processions) and a great shot of one of the castle courtyards from the outer gates - this trail is as enjoyable as the one outside. You will also be able to see the quaint streets, learn how this town has played such an intrinsic part in UK history and see views of where the recent Royal Wedding Procession passed by.
