  • We were the last shuttle of the season and also the only people on the shuttle! Loved our driver! We loved seeing the countryside to Hampton Court and learned many interesting facts as we made our way there... a tour in itself! The driver told us how to get to the train station just over the bridge from the castle to return to Windsor where we were staying. Delightful!

  • Super kind driver who gave us some history during our quick drive from Hampton Court to Windsor

  • Very convenient to get between the two castles, and the driver was very friendly.

  • the best way to enjoy both castle in the same day! driver was really nice

  • Did not go on this trip.

  • Everyone should use this shuttle from Windsor Castle to Hampton Court Palace! We took a train from London to Windsor, toured Windsor Castle, had lunch, then caught the shuttle to Hampton Court Palace. After touring the palace, we crossed the bridge nearby and took a train back to London. The shuttle allowed us to tour both places easily in one day. Both Windsor Castle and Hampton Court Palace are definitely worth the extra effort to get there. Our shuttle driver was friendly and informative. Great experience.

  • This was a quick and convenient way to be able to see both Windsor Castle and Hampton Courts all in one day. We were able to take the train from London to Windsor, tour Windsor, take this shuttle to Hampton about a half hour trip, tour Hampton Court Palace, and take the train from Hampton right back into London. It was a marvelous day!!!

  • Easy way to cover Windsor and Hampton Court in one day. Only takes about 30 min or so from one point to the other. The driver also does brief commentary on some places on the way.

  • Couldn't ask for more. The driver arrived early and left right on time from Windsor Castle. He was very cordial andd informative as we drove through the countryside. This is as efficient and pleasant as it gets for the ride between Windsor and Hampton Court. It is well worth the money and I highly recommend it.

  • My husband and I were the only folks on the shuttle which was a little odd at first but the driver was so friendly. He kept talking to us about the history of the area as we were driving. There really is no other way to get from Windsor Castle to Hampton Court Palace except via this direct driving route, VERY MUCH worth it!
