Tour Itinerary:

The Windsor, Stonehenge and Oxford day tour offers three world class attractions visited in one long but rewarding day.

The morning is spent visiting Windsor Castle, 'home' of the Queen of England. We then travel onto the world famous prehistoric monument Stonehenge before arriving late afternoon at Oxford, the last stop on the tour. A professional guide is aboard the luxury air-conditioned touring bus the entire day and will provide commentary and guiding throughout.


Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle, the first stop on the tour is a short 45 minute journey west of London. During this time your guide will take you through some of Windsor Castle's most interesting history. Windsor Castle opens at 9:30 a.m. so we will be arriving around the time the castle opens to the public.

 

Windsor Castle, a current residence of Her Majesty the Queen, is the largest continuously occupied castle in the world. You will get to see the State Apartments and St. George's Chapel as well as Queen Mary's Dolls' House; a perfectly scaled replica of an aristocratic home. At the Chapel you can visit the final resting places of English monarchs, Henry VIII, and his third wife Jane Seymour as well as Charles I, and see the the impressive Gothic architecture.

 

From the Royal Collection in the State Apartments, you will find works of art by Rembrandt, Rubens and Canaletto. The Royal Family still use the State Apartments for hosting events for those organisations of which they are patrons. From the battlements you will see spectacular views across the Thames valley.

 

Your visit includes your own personal audio guide in a choice of languages, so you are free to walk round and discover at your own pace.


Windsor itself is a pretty town full of traditional shops and historic pubs. Immediately outside the castle is the Old Town with its cobbled streets. The tour schedule for Windsor is a visit of around two hours.

Windsor Castle

Stonehenge

Stonehenge

It is now late morning when we depart Windsor and make the approximately 80 minute journey to Stonehenge.


This ancient Neolithic site, over 5000 years' old offers a fascinating glimpse into our ancestors' past. The ring of stones still poses many archaeological and historical questions for academics and visitors alike. An audio guide (in ten different languages), is included in the price and will inspire you with information surrounding Stonehenge, examining many different theories as to how and why the henge was built. A phenomenal feat of engineering, each stone weighing many tonnes, it is fascinating to admire the spirit of cooperation needed to build something at such an early time in history, with such primitive tools.

 

You will get to see the long path, with raised banks and ditches, known as the 'avenue'; a processional route stretching about three miles or two kilometres, marking the the entrance to Stonehenge. From this point you can learn about how our ancestors understood the turning of the year, and the importance of aligning with the sun.

 

The visitor centre, a mile from the stones themselves, is well worth finding time to see. It displays nearly 250 archaeological treasures, which were used or buried at Stonehenge as well a regularly changing programme of special exhibitions. In addition, reconstructed Neolithic houses outside the visitor centre, provide living history with regular demonstrations of ancient domestic skills such as flint knapping, and rope making.

A gift shop offers an extensive range of books, gifts and souvenirs, many made in the UK exclusively for Stonehenge.

A 110-seater counter service café serves hot and cold drinks, soup, sandwiches, cakes, salads and other sweet and savoury delicacies.

Oxford

After leaving Stonehenge its onto our final stop Oxford, the famous university city, north from Stonehenge.

This is the 'City of Dreaming Spires' and home to the world's most famous university. Its colleges date back to the 13th century, an inspiration to generations of scholars including President Bill Clinton, and the authors J.R.R Tolkien, Lewis Carroll and C.S Lewis.


Your Evan Evans guide will take you on a walking tour to see Christ Church college, the Bodleian Library and the Sheldonian Theatre and much else besides.

It is now very late afternoon when we leave Oxford for the journey back to London, the estimated time of arrival back in London is around 7 p.m.
