Windsor can be found on the River Thames, just west of London. It is one of only eight Royal Boroughs in the UK. A Royal Borough is given this status based on an express wish by the Monarchy. Its 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 recent 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 will 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 tons each, with the heaviest being around 30 tons. 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 guided tour will accompany on your journeys to Windsor, Stonehenge and back to London, giving you lots of useful facts and figures and their ‘inside knowledge’.
Entrances are not included in the price of the tour, but can be added by changing your option in the booking panel that displays dates and prices.
