Overview

Enjoy Windsor Castle and Hampton Court Palace in one day by taking this shuttle between the two attractions!

Travel independently by train from London Paddington to Windsor & Eton Central or London Waterloo to Windsor & Eton Riverside for your morning visit (we suggest departing at around 8:45am to get the most of your day; journey to Windsor at own expense). Either station is only a short walk to the Castle entrance. Windsor Castle can be extremely busy in the morning with many Tour Groups arriving by coaches so we recommend that you pre-purchase your tickets in advance to avoicd the long lines. The London Pass does not guarantee speedy access.

After your morning visit, take the lunchtime Shuttle to Hampton Court Palace which will deliver you to the main entrance.

  • Excellent value for money

Leaving Windsor Castle (visit at own expense), the medieval castle favored by reining monarchs since the 11th century you will take the short and direct Shuttle ride to Hampton Court Palace. Your journey follows the River Thames where passengers will see several notable sites.

Soon after leaving Windsor you will be driven through Runnymede where the Magna Carta was signed by King John in 1215. This riverside meadow is recognized as one of the most important events in English history as it marked the road to individual freedom, parliamentary democracy and to the supremacy of law. Today the Magna Carta is commemorated by a monument donated by the American Bar Association. Alongside the Magna Carta monument stands the John F Kennedy memorial opened by the Queen in 1965.

Approaching Hampton Court Palace you pass several Victorian reservoirs constructed to supply water to London and its surrounding suburbs, as well as passing the riverside home of David Garrick an 18th Century actor, playwright and theatrical producer. You also observe the Temple which he constructed to commemorate the genius of William Shakespeare. Finally you pass the former home of Sir Christopher Wren, the architect who is famously associated with the design of St. Paul's Cathedral in London.

The Shuttle arrives immediately outside the main entrance to Hampton Court Palace approximately 30 minutes after leaving Windsor Castle. Visit to Hampton Court Palace at own expense.

Hampton Court Palace has much to offer visitors; discover the magnificence of Henry VIII's favorite royal residence. Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of the bustling Base Court and marvel at the breath-taking grandeur of Henry's State Rooms. Tickle your taste buds in the vast Tudor kitchens, stroll through over 60 acres of enchanting gardens, lose yourself in the famous maze and appreciate the beauty of one of the greatest palaces on earth.

East Molesey which is just a short walk over Hampton Court bridge on your way to the railway station which has an abundance of shops, restaurants and pubs which visitors may wish to visit before returning to their final destination later in the day at their own pace. Return to London by train from Hampton Court Station which is only a short walk across the bridge.

We were the last shuttle of the season and also the only people on the shuttle! Loved our driver! We loved seeing the countryside to Hampton Court and learned many interesting facts as we made our way there... a tour in itself! The driver told us how to get to the train station just over the bridge from the castle to return to Windsor where we were staying. Delightful!
