Overview

Visit the royal castle in Windsor, unearth Neolithic secrets at Stonehenge and explore the timeworn city of Oxford all in one day. With a professional guide, set off from central London by coach to visit three of England’s most famous sights outside of the capital. Make use of your included entrance tickets to enjoy audio tours of Windsor Castle and the UNESCO–listed Stonehenge. Then finish your day trip with a walking tour of Oxford’s honey-stoned university buildings.

Highlights

  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
  • Tour is wheelchair accessible
  • All entrance fees included


What You Can Expect

Start your day trip at Victoria Coach Station to meet your guide and board the coach to Windsor Castle.
When you pull up outside the castle, an official residence of Queen Elizabeth II, head inside with your included ticket and audio guide to explore highlights like the State Apartments and St. George’s Chapel. Depending on timing, you might also be able to watch the guards, dressed in cherry red tunics and bearskins, performing the famous Changing of the Guard ceremony.
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 roughly two hours, continue to Stonehenge, the mysterious, UNESCO World Heritage-listed stone circle set on the Salisbury Plain. During the audio tour, hear the theories behind the creation of this prehistoric site, as well as its association with Merlin and King Arthur.
Next, head for the honey-hued city of Oxford, home to Britain’s oldest and perhaps most prestigious university. Plug into your provided headset and follow in the footsteps of luminaries like J.R.R. Tolkien with a guided tour of the university’s famous buildings, including Christchurch College and the Bodleian Library.
When the time comes, journey back to London by coach, where your day trip ends at Victoria Coach Station.

Stonehenge was expectedly impressive and it was that and more, just amazing human feat to ponder. Windsor, if your a Royals fan, was engaging and worth the tour, more time may have been nice to see more then highlights. Oxford by end of the day was very chilly and so we skipped group tour and found a pub for fish and chips and returned to the bus when time was up.

Love the places that I booked, Katya is very knowledgeable of the places where we went. She had a lot of patience when a passenger was left behind and communicated with other tour guides for assistance.

The bus terminal in Paris is quite large with two different buildings so it took us a while before we located the right tour bus. It would have been helpful if the tour instructions included the gate number. Other than that, we really enjoyed the trip. Phil our tour guide was so knowledgeable and interesting. He kept us entertained with facts and stories for the whole day especially during the bus ride to our destinations. The line at Windsor Castle was quite long but while in line Phil told us in detail about the first few audio stops so we were able to skip those and quickly move on to the heart of the castle. The tour instructions told us to bring a lunch but this was not necessary as it was easy to pick up sandwiches and snacks as we left Windsor castle and walked back to the bus. Only disappointment was that we arrived too late in the day to go to King Cross college in Oxford. But Phil gave a good walking tour with time to stop at a few shops. Riding back to London, the driver navigated us easily through the streets to give us a bit of a tour of different areas around London such as Notting Hill. To end a great tour, Phil recommended SeaFresh restaurant and told us how to get there from the bus station. It was an awesome meal. Phil was the perfect English tour guide and he definitely made the day trip enjoyable and memorable.
