Many of us choose far flung destinations for our holidays,…
Windsor tours from London are extremely popular. The town of the Queen’s most loved weekend residence is just outside the city meaning it’s got a wonderfully peaceful atmosphere, it’s got so much history and it’s not too far away if you’re staying in the city!
Windsor is a captivating place and there’s so much more than just the castle! The following are the top three things you must do on your Windsor tour.
1. Visit Windsor Castle
Royal Windsor Castle is, beyond a shadow of a doubt, the key attraction in Windsor. Book your tickets in advance and become entranced by the many things you can do within this fortress. The Castle’s rich and dramatic regal history spans an astounding 900 years, and its opulent, lavish State Rooms will certainly entrance you on your Windsor Castle tour.
Don’t miss St George’s Chapel – the final resting place of many monarchs, including Henry VIII and make sure to see Queen Mary’s Doll’s House – an incredible example of miniature engineering, craft and architecture! The house has tiny silverware and working running water!
2. Take a hop on hop off Windsor coach tour
The most rapid, sweeping way to explore the best of this picturesque town in the course of a day is on a hop on hop off Windsor tour. View the best and most historical landmarks of Windsor in one journey, while the informative and fun commentary tells you all you need to know about this enthralling spot.
There are also many shops, cafes and restaurants to visit, so make sure you leave time to visit a few and pick up some souvenirs.
3. Visit other enchanting places too!
If you want to visit Windsor but have limited time, it might make sense to combine a Windsor trip with other destinations! Day trips by coach visit other awesome UK spots nearby such as the mysterious Stonehenge, historical Oxford and the beautiful Bath. See them all in one day and pack the most you can into your UK holiday.
