Get a taste for British culture and history by visiting two of the UK’s most famous sites – the stunning Windsor Castle and the historical Roman Baths in Bath. Our coach will pick you up from London and transport you to both locations on a relaxing and stress-free journey!
Dating back to the 11th century, Windsor Castle is one of the oldest and largest occupied castles in the world. It is also The Queen’s favourite weekend residence, and it’s not hard to see why!
Prepare to be dazzled by the beautiful State Apartments, which, as well as being lavishly decorated, also feature many artworks by famous painters such as Rubens, Van Dyck and Holbein. You’ll marvel at the rooms that were built for Charles II and Catherine of Braganza. As Charles II wanted to rival the residence of his cousin, Louis XIV, in Versailles, France, it is no wonder these rooms are a must-see!
You’ll also get to see the lovely St George’s Chapel, which served as the wedding location to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle!
Discover the world-famous Roman Baths! As the name indicates, these Roman-built baths are located in the beautiful city of Bath and date all the way back to 60 AD. You’ll have the opportunity to admire the surprisingly well-preserved architectural details, walk around the hot springs and even taste a sip Bath’s waters in the Pump Room!
We offer you the chance to not enter the Royal Baths, but to enjoy free time in the beautiful city of Bath instead. Please select your preferred package for the options availble in the booking panel.
Estimated time back in London is 6:30pm.
