Windsor can be found on the River Thames, just west of London. It is one of only 8 Royal Boroughs in the UK. A Royal Borough is given this status based on an express wish by the Monarchy. It's easy to see why Windsor has been granted this once you arrive. The market town is steeped in history and is home to Windsor Castle, a residence of the British Royal Family. Built by William The Conqueror in the 11th century, the Castle hosted the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, also known as Harry and Megan.
You can either purchase a ticket for entry into the Castle, or join the guided walking tour of the beautiful cobbled streets that surround it.
After visiting the beautiful town of Windsor, the tour takes you to Stonehenge, a prehistoric monument in Wiltshire, England. Stonehenge is where you'll find the famous circle of sarsen and ‘bluestones’, many being around 13 feet in height, around 7 feet wide, with some weighting up to 25 tonnes each, with the heaviest being around 30 tonnes. The first monument at Stonehenge was a circular earthwork enclosure, built in about 3000 BC. There are many different theories as to how the stones arrived at Stonehenge, including them being pulled over 30km to the site.
A tour guide will accompany you on your journeys to Windsor, Stonehenge and back to London, providing lots of useful facts, figures and ‘inside knowledge’.
