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. Upgrade to include entrance fees, or enjoy the flexibility of deciding on the day which attractions you'd like to visit.

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.
On arrival, show your pre-booked ticket or pay your entrance fee (depending on the option selected), 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.

    A lot within the a day and worth the money specially if you have very limited time to spend within UK. Highly recommended!!

    We were lead by Rita and Barry the bullet and what a day it was!

    Despite our trip leaving late and then losing some time waiting for a member who never made it to check point or called in, we were able to make all our destinations on time and have extra time to explore each location for a while. Rita was awesome as she gave us some cool stories and facts about each destination in English and Spanish, she's very talented in her ability to switch seamlessly between languages and turns out she speaks Portuguese, Spanish, French, English and I think something else.

    Anyway, she also took the time to get to know each of us. I automatically sleep on long rides, it's a thing I've done since childhood, but Rita came to me when I woke up to fill me in on things I missed. So considerate.

    Barry surely lives up to his nickname. The man somehow navigates through London traffic like it was nothing! And for someone who tends to get car sickness fairly easily, this man was smooth. I'd happily ride with Rita and Barry again!
