The oldest and biggest inhabited castle in the world, Windsor Castle is the Queen’s favourite residence, making this an absolute must-see for fans of royal enthusiasts. Built by William the Conqueror in the 11th century, the monarchy has added new structures to the castle over the years and remains a working palace till today. While you are at this palace, visit the enchanted Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House and enjoy a spectacular tour of the State Apartments.
Windsor Castle and the 900 years of history- A guide
Without visiting the interesting Windsor Castle, which has more than 900 years of royal history, your trip to Windsor would be incomplete. Till now, it is used by sovereignty as the biggest inhabited castle on the whole planet. William Shakespeare, one of the most famous writers in the English language, is rumoured to have written his play “The Merry Wives of Windsor” in one of them. Another attraction is St. George Chapel, which has witnessed several royal weddings, cremations, and funerals, which include the burials of the Queen Mother and King Henry VII. Despite being used frequently for regal affairs, a large portion of the palace is still accessible to travellers and is well worth a visit. You can see the Great Kitchen and learn about the inner workings of the castle on escorted Windsor Castle Tours or Castle tours.

Windsor Castle- Take The Ideal Day Tour
If you are looking for unique and exotic activities to fill your trip while you are in London, you really must include a day trip or tour to Windsor Castle. Please visit the “Our Tours” page area to get a list of all the tours we provide.
Add mystery to your day by visiting the UNESCO-listed prehistoric stone circle of Stonehenge. Stone Circle Experience at Stonehenge will take you up close to this world-famous monument. One of the most popular and mystifying Prehistoric sites in the world, the ancient temple of Stonehenge was built around 5000 years ago, making it older than the pyramids of Egypt. In historic times, this religious site was thought to be a place of healing as well as an astronomical clock. Our exclusive Stonehenge special access tours let you visit the landmark and walk among the stones either during the early morning (sunrise) or evening (sunset).
City of Bath
Constructed in around 70AD as a grand bathing and socialising complex, the Roman Baths is one of the best-preserved Roman remains in the world, where 1,170,000 litres of steaming spring water, reaching 46°C, still fills the bathing site every single day. The Roman Baths are right in the centre of Bath within the main shopping area and next to Bath Abbey and the Tourist Office. It is the site of extensive ruins and an interactive museum filled with many treasures and visual snippets that transport you back to Roman times and the lives of the Aquae Sulis people. Walk on ancient pavements as the Romans did 2,000 years ago, and explore chambers historically housing changing rooms and tepid plunge pools.
Alternative Tour Sights
You also have the option of picking some alternate tour sights to visit such as Windsor Castle (the oldest and largest royal-occupied castle in the world), Avebury (a Neolithic henge monument containing three stone circles), Hampton Court (a royal palace) or Lacock Abbey & Village (picturesque streets and historic cottages featuring in Pride & Prejudice & Harry Potter).
Lunch and Notes
Our tour guide will gladly provide you with a variety of options to choose from for lunch that day.
