Experience three of England’s trophy sights on this full-day trip to Windsor Castle, Stonehenge and Oxford from London. Travel by air-conditioned coach to Windsor to gaze at magnificent Windsor Castle and, if you wish, buy an entrance ticket from your guide to tour its awesome interior. Then, head for Stonehenge to marvel at this UNESCO World Heritage site, again choosing to explore independently or to buy an entrance ticket for an in-depth, audio-guided tour. Last but not least, admire the honey-stoned gems of beautiful Oxford on an included walking tour.

Highlights

  • Day trip (destination A to B)
  • Hotel pickup included
  • Informative, friendly and professional guide
  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
Leave London on your air-conditioned coach and travel west to Windsor, the home of Windsor Castle, an official residence of Queen Elizabeth II. Extending over 13 acres (five hectares), this imposing castle houses lavish State Apartments, Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House and magnificent St George’s Chapel, the burial place of King Henry VIII.

Buy an entrance ticket to the Castle from your guide on the coach, and head inside to view the State Apartments, St George’s Chapel and other highlights, all brought to life by audio guide commentary. The display of British pageantry that is the Changing of the Guard takes place in the Castle precincts on an almost daily basis, so you may catch this colorful morning ceremony if your tour takes place on one of the days it occurs and if you have purchased an entrance ticket to the Castle.

Alternatively, use your time to explore the town of Windsor and stroll around its quaint streets. You may also see the New or Old Guard of soldiers marching to the Castle if your tour coincides with a Changing of the Guard ceremony. Usually accompanied by a military band, the Guards march through central Windsor in their bright red tunics and bearskin helmets, making an impressive sight.

After around two hours in Windsor, head for Stonehenge. This UNESCO-listed stone circle rears dramatically from Salisbury Plain and is cloaked in mystery. Perhaps purchase an entrance ticket from your guide and take an audio-guided tour that delves into the stones’ spiritual importance and their associations with figures such as King Arthur and Merlin. Or view Stonehenge independently from outside and ponder its mysteries yourself as you take photos of this incredible prehistoric monument.

Later, continue to Oxford. Home to Britain’s oldest university, the colleges of this honey-stoned town inspired scholars such as Lewis Carroll and J R R Tolkien. Take an included walking tour to admire Christchurch College, the Bodleian Library and Sheldonian Theatre as you listen to your guide’s crystal-clear commentary on your Vox headphones.

Afterward, return to London where your tour ends with a drop-off at Victoria coach station.

We had a wonderful tour! The hotel pick up was great and our tour guide was very friendly and helpful. There was some confusion at the bus station after hotel pick-up trying to figure out which bus we were suppose to get on (there were about 10 +/- tours leaving at the same time) and not all the staff had the correct information, but in the end we got to the right bus and didn't have any problems after that. Had plenty of time at each location. Would definitely recommend!

The tour guide was absolutely wonderful. He knew all the interesting information off the top of his head, without notes, and was funny and engaging. He answered questions well and was accommodating to minor changes in schedule. Brilliant. We had just come off another tour with one of your competitors where the tour guide was woeful, so the Viator experience was strikingly refreshing. The only downside was having to wait for an hour, half our time there, to get into the castle. Thanks.
