Private Tours From Your Hotel In London to Windsor and Beyond
Private Windsor Tour
Windsor is only about 45-60 minutes drive from most Central London hotels. There is so much more to Windsor than just the castle, you could easily spend the weekend there.
So if you want you can just visit Windsor on its own, perhaps as a half day tour or why not combine Windsor in one memorable day with places like Stonehenge, Hampton Court Palace or Bath.

During the summer and every other day during the Winter, Changing of the Guard takes place at Windsor Castle at 11 a.m.
Next door to the Castle is the Old Town where there are several authentic cobbled streets dating from the 17th century. Worth at least 10 minutes of anyone's time. Most people want to spend a lot, lot longer.
On the other side of the River Thames, quickly reached across a pedestrian footbridge is Eton. You stroll along a very interesting High Street to the famous Eton College, England's top private boarding school where the boys still wear top coats and tails.
There are river trips down by the waterfront and if you have kids, do buy a loaf of sliced bread from the Waitrose supermarket and feed the swans.

Just a couple of miles from Windsor is Runnymede where the Magna Carta was signed in 1215, just south of Windsor.
Today there are three monuments to be seen. One is of course to commemorate the Magna Carta. A second, erected in the 60's to remember the assassinated US president, John F Kennedy. Lastly at the top of the hill is the Air Forces Memorial.
The Queens Farm Shop is this way too, produce, most of it organic coming in large part from the Queen's farms. There is a tea room here too and quality royal merchandise.
Also at Windsor for the kids is the theme park Legoland
Windsor for the day
The most popular option for our clients is to spend a leisurely morning in Windsor town with a tour of Windsor Castle as the highlight. We then take you to a riverside pub at Old Windsor for lunch and then walk it off afterwards with a walking tour of Runnymede to see the Magna Carta memorial and President Kennedy.
In the afternoon, take the short ride to Eton and take a tour of the famous college.
Windsor Plus Stonehenge or Salisbury or Hampton Court or Bath
Most people however will want to spend the afternoon at a second location or even make a third attraction returning to their hotel in the evening.
Combining Windsor and Stonehenge is probably the most popular option.
Windsor and Salisbury creates a themed Magna Carta tour, see where the Magna Carta was signed at Windsor in the morning, then see an actual Magna Carta at Salisbury in the afternoon.
