1. London: Windsor Castle Private Tour with Hotel Transfers
Your private tour guide will bring the incredible history to life as you step back in time to the 11th Century and learn about how Windsor Castle was founded by William the Conqueror. It has since withstood siege, been used for official entertaining, as a royal court by King Henry VIII and Elizabeth I, and as a home to 39 monarchs. It was a residence of Queen Elizabeth II who enjoyed many of her private weekends at the Castle. Located within 13 acres, and boasting over an impressive 1,000 rooms, the Castle consists of three distinct sections. During the reign of King Charles II, the State Apartments were renovated to rival the rooms of Versailles in France and, today, you can witness incredible artwork from the Royal Collections, including paintings by Rembrandt and Rubens. Experience spectacular St George’s Chapel, a beautiful place of worship, burial place for ten monarchs including Henry VIII and the Queen Mother, and the setting for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding. Also, depending on the day and time of your visit, you might be lucky enough to witness the Changing of the Guard at Windsor Castle.
