Visit the royal castle in Windsor, unearth Neolithic secrets at Stonehenge and explore the timeworn city of Oxford all in one day. With a professional guide, set off from central London by coach to visit three of England’s most famous sights outside of the capital. Make use of your included entrance tickets to enjoy audio tours of Windsor Castle and the UNESCO–listed Stonehenge. Then finish your day trip with a walking tour of Oxford’s honey-stoned university buildings.
Start your day trip at Victoria Coach Station to meet your guide and board the coach to Windsor Castle.
When you pull up outside the castle, an official residence of Queen Elizabeth II, head inside with your included ticket and audio guide to explore highlights like the State Apartments and St. George’s Chapel. Depending on timing, you might also be able to watch the guards, dressed in cherry red tunics and bearskins, performing the famous Changing of the Guard ceremony.
From 26 October 2018 to 6 January 2019 (closed on 23 Nov & 14 Dec) , A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will form part of your visit to Windsor Castle. This special exhibition will feature the wedding outfits worn by the couple at their wedding in May 2018. After roughly two hours, continue to Stonehenge, the mysterious, UNESCO World Heritage-listed stone circle set on the Salisbury Plain. During the audio tour, hear the theories behind the creation of this prehistoric site, as well as its association with Merlin and King Arthur.
Next, head for the honey-hued city of Oxford, home to Britain’s oldest and perhaps most prestigious university. Plug into your provided headset and follow in the footsteps of luminaries like J.R.R. Tolkien with a guided tour of the university’s famous buildings, including Christchurch College and the Bodleian Library.
When the time comes, journey back to London by coach, where your day trip ends at Victoria Coach Station.
