Overview

Experience three of England’s trophy sights on this full-day trip to Windsor Castle, Stonehenge and Oxford from London. Travel by air-conditioned coach to Windsor to gaze at magnificent Windsor Castle and, if you wish, buy an entrance ticket from your guide to tour its awesome interior. Then, head for Stonehenge to marvel at this UNESCO World Heritage site, again choosing to explore independently or to buy an entrance ticket for an in-depth, audio-guided tour. Last but not least, admire the honey-stoned gems of beautiful Oxford on an included walking tour. Upgrade to include entrance fees, or enjoy the flexibility of deciding on the day which attractions you'd like to visit.

Highlights

  • Day trip (destination A to B)
  • Informative, friendly and professional guide
  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city


What You Can Expect

Leave London on your air-conditioned coach and travel west to Windsor, the home of Windsor Castle, an official residence of Queen Elizabeth II. Extending over 13 acres (five hectares), this imposing castle houses lavish State Apartments, Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House and magnificent St George’s Chapel, the burial place of King Henry VIII.
On arrival, show your pre-booked ticket or pay your entrance fee (depending on the option selected), and head inside to view the State Apartments, St George’s Chapel and other highlights, all brought to life by audio guide commentary. The display of British pageantry that is the Changing of the Guard takes place in the Castle precincts on an almost daily basis, so you may catch this colorful morning ceremony if your tour takes place on one of the days it occurs and if you have purchased an entrance ticket to the Castle.
Alternatively, use your time to explore the town of Windsor and stroll around its quaint streets. You may also see the New or Old Guard of soldiers marching to the Castle if your tour coincides with a Changing of the Guard ceremony. Usually accompanied by a military band, the Guards march through central Windsor in their bright red tunics and bearskin helmets, making an impressive sight.
From 26 October 2018 to 6 January 2019 (closed on 23 Nov & 14 Dec) , 
A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex  will form part of your visit to Windsor Castle. This special exhibition will feature the wedding outfits worn by the couple at their wedding in May 2018.
After visiting in Windsor, head for Stonehenge. This UNESCO-listed stone circle rears dramatically from Salisbury Plain and is cloaked in mystery. Perhaps purchase an entrance ticket from your guide and take an audio-guided tour that delves into the stones’ spiritual importance and their associations with figures such as King Arthur and Merlin. Or view Stonehenge independently from outside and ponder its mysteries yourself as you take photos of this incredible prehistoric monument.
Later, continue to Oxford. Home to Britain’s oldest university, the colleges of this honey-stoned town inspired scholars such as Lewis Carroll and J R R Tolkien. Take an included walking tour to admire Christchurch College, the Bodleian Library and Sheldonian Theatre as you listen to your guide’s crystal-clear commentary on your Vox headphones.
Afterward, return to London where your tour ends with a drop-off at Victoria coach station.

JOSHUA C

We were late at Victoria Coach Station for the trip at 8 a.m. on 9 December 2018. When we arrived at the Victoria Coach Station, the coach had already left. Thankfully, we met a beautiful bespectacled young lady called Nadine from Evans and Evans (if I got her name correct) who went out of her way to help my family to get alternative transport to Windsor Castle to meet the coach so that we could rejoin the rest and continue with the trip. Yes, we managed to arrive in time to meet the guide, Godfrey. Honestly, without Nadine who went out of her way to help us, we would have had missed the trip. Nadine was not only helpful, she did with a warm smile and walked with us to the road and waited with us in the rain for the transport from Addison Lee. Thank you Nadine, for your patience and very kind act. Kudos to you! We deeply appreciate and you made our day!
