Full description

Historic Windsor Surrounded by the delightful countryside of the Royal County of Berkshire, discover this historic, quintessentially English town set in a glorious riverside location. Wander its cobbled streets and browse the quaint tea rooms and shopping arcades as the tour guide brings the history of this historic town to life. Windsor Castle & the Royal Wedding Head towards the Windsor Castle, rising high above the skyline of the town.  The castle has been the ancestral home of the British Royal family for more than 900 years and is the largest continuously occupied castle in Europe. Tour the State Apartments, the centrepiece of the castle and reputed to be the grandest apartments in England, their opulence is immediately apparent. On the walls hang some of the most beautiful works of art from the Royal Arts Collection, whilst the colossal Waterloo Chamber commemorates the famous English victory over Napoleon. See St George's Chapel where HRH Prince Harry married Meghan Markle in 2018. Construction was completed on the chapel in 1528 by Henry VIII and it remains the resting place for no fewer than 10 former monarchs, including Charles I, George III, Edward VII and Henry VIII himself.

NEW: Platinum Jubilee: The Queen's Coronation - departures between 7th July - 26th September 2022 At Windsor Castle, the Coronation Dress and Robe of Estate worn by The Queen for her Coronation at Westminster Abbey on 2 June 1953 will be on display. Designed by the British couturier Sir Norman Hartnell, the dress was created in the finest white duchesse satin, richly embroidered in a lattice-work effect with an iconographic scheme of national and Commonwealth floral emblems in gold and silver thread and pastel-coloured silks, encrusted with seed pearls, sequins and crystals. Her Majesty’s Robe of Estate was made by the royal robe-makers Ede and Ravenscroft of purple silk velvet. The goldwork embroidery design features wheat ears and olive branches, symbolising prosperity and peace, surrounding the crowned intertwined EIIR cipher. It took 12 embroideresses, using 18 different types of gold thread, more than 3,500 hours to complete the work between March and May 1953.
