Know More about this tour

Board your luxury coach in Victoria, central London, and travel west out of the capital to Windsor – a well-heeled little town that’s best known as the home of Windsor Castle – the official residence of the Queen. Blanketing an area of 13 acres (5 hectares), the castle grounds cover an impressive list of sights to see, like St George’s Chapel, Queen Mary’s Doll House and the plush State Apartments.

Head inside with your entrance ticket and explore at your own pace, learning about the castle’s history that steeped into its stones. Pick up an audio guide, and listen to entertaining commentary as you amble around; learn about Sir Edwin Lutyets, the British architect who created Queen Mary’s Dolls House for the young monarch in the early 1920s, and hear about the different monarchs who furnished the impressive State Apartments according to their tastes.

Admire priceless work of art by the likes of Leonardo da Vinci and Rembrandt, and explore St George’s Chapel to discover the final resting place of various monarchs including King Henry VIII – one of the more flamboyant characters that have lived in the castle.

The Changing of the Guard ceremony takes place daily, so you can try to catch it while exploring the town. Usually accompanied by a military band, soldiers march up the high street to Windsor Castle in colorful red tunics and bearskin hats, representing the pomp and ceremony (some say eccentricity of the British Royal Family.

Meet your guide at the pre-arranged time and travel back to London in the comfort of your luxury coach. Your day trip finishes in the neighborhood of Kensington, central London, in the early evening.

  • Great day out. Loads of free time.

  • I was very unhappy with the way this tour is set up. There was not enough time to see the castle and property. By the time we cleared security and got audio the chapel was about to close and they rushed us out. Then went straight to state apartments and again they were about to close and were rushed

  • Very nice amount of leisure time to explore along with the informative guide along the way. This was a nice self paced walk through-out the grounds and in the castle. I was able to explore and see every nook and corner I wanted to see in and out of the castle. It offers the right amount of time fora visit. Highly recommend it when visiting the area.

  • Interesting...glad I did it. But it wasn't what I expected. For one, be aware you cannot take photos inside. And the chapel is only open during certain times. The grounds are nice and worth the time to walk around them.

  • Windsor is used by the queen so the access is limited. We did not get to see the main entry and main procession into the building. We saw just 28 rooms of the entire huge complex. I recommend skipping this and seeing a more historic castle with full access like Dover or Warwick castles. Leeds castle is also not worth it. Much of the interior was renovated in the 2oth century with no historic significance.

  • We went to the tour company site at Victoria Station and got on a very nice bus which drove us directly to Windsor Castle. The bus driver guided us to the entrance of the castle which made our access very easy. It is a self-guided tour and they gave us approximately 2 to 3 hours in the castle before departure.

  • Driver wasted an hour waiting for guests who did not show. We were rushed through the castle to,see everything and meet the driver's departure deadline.

  • Great day, but I would like to have had more time to explore! Will definately return to Windsor again. Booking this excursion was easy, the organization of the trip was good, the transport was very comfortable.

  • Unfortunately I was not able to take the tour, as it doesn't run on the day Viator had booked me in.
    Very disappointing.

  • there needs to be clearer instructions on where the pick up is. In our case we almost missed the bus. while we were at Victoria Station we were in the wrong part of it and had to ask to get directions. Apart from that the visit to the Castle was spectacular.
