Know More about this tour

After pickup from a central London meeting point, you’ll be off to Windsor Castle, where more than 900 years of royal history awaits! From William the Conqueror all the way through to the current Queen, successive monarchs have lived here and left their mark on what is now one of the largest continuously occupied castles in the world. Tour Windsor Castle independently, taking time to see St George’s Chapel and the formal State Apartments in all their lavish glory.

Windsor itself is a pretty town full of traditional shops and historic pubs. It was in one of these pubs that Shakespeare was said to have written his play The Merry Widows of Windsor.

After spending your morning in Windsor, enjoy your journey back through the English countryside on a comfortable, air-conditioned coach. Your tour ends in Knightsbridge (central London), at the cozy Tea Clipper pub, situated right next to the famous department store Harrods, where you can enjoy a traditional fish and chips lunch.

Please note: Lunch may be taken at alternative venues in Central London

    If you just take this tour, the time viewing the castle is great. We were put on the bus with others taking this tour and on to Bath and Stonehedge. Later they sent a passenger van to pick us back up. The guide took us directly to the entrance of Windsor and obtained the tickets for us to get in. I personally thought that was very helpful. The return to London driver dropped us off, at least two blocks from the lunch venue at St. George's Tavern near Victoria Underground. The only option for lunch was fish and chips. Its a good thing, I like fish. The other traveler didn't like fish, so she only ate the chips. I also believe that a drink price should have been added.

    This was a great tour. Our guide Lucy made our one hour coach ride feel brief with her colorful commentary and history of London buildings on the way out of town as well as history of the Royal family as we drew nearer to Windsor. We were first in line when the castle gates opened at 9:45 which meant we didn't have to wait long and had plenty of time to see the castle. Once inside, you are on your own to explore without the guide but there are plenty of staff and docents around if you have any questions. On this day, Lucy was doing a full day tour Windsor, Stonehenge and Bath so most of the group had to be back at the coach by 11:15 but those of us on the half day were able to explore the castle until 12:30 before heading back to the coach lot. The town of Windsor itself is so cute and quaint, I wish I had had more time to explore before heading back... will definitely need to plan a full day there next time. After returning to the coach lot, our driver David took those of us that were on the half day tour back to London where he dropped us at St. George's Tavern for lunch. The tour includes a voucher for lunch and you can order anything off the menu, but I choose a traditional fish and chips which was delicious. Overall a great experience that I would recommend to anyone

    comfortable bus trip from Victoria Coach Station - primarily a self directed tour.

    John our tour guide was excellent. He did a fantastic job. He was very knowledgeable.

    I wish we could have had more time at Windsor Castle. Another hour would have been nice.

    We were disappointed in the lunch at the St. George's Tavern. The only choice with the voucher was fish and chips, according to the people at the pub. Drinks were not included either. We weren't told that ahead of time.

    Loved Windsor Castle and town. Given lunch ticket but never explained where restaurant was or when we would get there it was back in London. Thought we'd be in Harrod's area which is what description of tour said but we ended up back at Victoria Station which is the bus hub. Just not what was advertised.

    First. The tour guide was super unorganized and appeared bothered by questions. Worst guide we've ever had. We were not told lunch was in London and not Windsor. I didn't remember from the 6 months ago I booked it. The lunch in London was limited to fish n chips and did not include a drink. And by the time you get there it's about 2 pm so a bit past noon. The Windsor castle tour was rushed to make it back to the pick up point on time. I would do this tour again.

    We had a little bit of trouble figuring out where to go for this one. Turns out the half day tour was tagged onto a full day tour. So we kept looking for just a windsor castle bus from Victoria coach station and we were in full panic mode thinking we had missed it. We asked a lot of the workers at the coach station and no one would explain much to us - so we finally just called the number on the back of the voucher and the tour company explained things to us better. The tour itself was great. We loved Windsor Castle! The lunch afterwards was all right - I probably could have done without it.

    worth doing but over rated , hard pressed finding 2hrs to do unless you stop at every thing you see, cant take photos inside which is the best part of the tour nor can you go into the garden, to major letdowns but at least we can say we have been their

    tour of the castle was good. .... the food was terrible. After the tour we were just dropped off at the lunch venue... had to find it ourselves and were given incorrect instructions.... greasy fish and chips......had to struggle to get a table.it was like the venue was not expecting us......we actually thought we may have walked into the wrong pub.
