Description - What to expect

After an early pick-up from your centrally located hotel, you depart for a drive to Windsor, a place abundant with natural beauty. Once you arrive, take a short walk through the quaint town of Windsor and approach Her Majesty, the Queen’s favorite weekend residence! A royal home for over 900 years, this sprawling castle is spectacular and steeped in history.

The State Apartments are a sight to behold. Filled with ornate weaponry and priceless works of art, including pieces by Leonardo da Vinci and Rembrandt, the audio guide tells you all you need to know about each lavishly decorated room. Visit Queen Mary’s intricate doll’s house, which features tiny silverware, a small working kitchen, and a mini version of the Crown Jewels! St George’s Chapel is the final resting place of the Queen Mother, as well as Henry VIII and his most-loved wife, Jane Seymour.

Continue your picturesque journey to the mystical Stonehenge. These mysterious rocks have stood on Salisbury Plain for over 5,000 years; some say we will never know for sure what they stand for. Perhaps this is an astronomical clock? Maybe it was a religious temple. Whatever you decide, nothing can compare to the feeling of standing in front of such an ancient monument.

Continue to Bath to enjoy a breathtaking tour of the first city in England to become a UNESCO World Heritage site. Filled with exquisite Roman and Georgian architecture and featuring natural hot springs that were once popular for public bathing, see the 15th century Bath Abbey and explore the fantastic independent shops and quaint cafes. Visit the Roman Baths, still a charming historical attraction, that gave the city its name! You will also visit the Pump Room and have the opportunity to sip Bath’s waters in this beautiful neo-classical salon.
