Enjoy the treasures of Windsor Castle, uncover the history behind the ancient stone circle at Stonehenge, and discover the history behind the city of Oxford on this full-day from London.
What to Expect
Built high above the River Thames, Windsor Castle has been home to the Royal Family for 900 years and is still an official residence of the Queen. You will visit the magnificent State Apartments*, still used for state occasions and royal receptions. Take some time to explore the castle grounds and the 14th century St. George's Chapel, one of the most beautiful examples of medieval church architecture in England and a burial place of kings and queens, including Henry VIII and his third wife Jane Seymour.
Clouded in mystery, the ancient stone circle of Stonehenge is an amazing feat of engineering and the most important prehistoric site in England, but beyond its archaeological significance and possible astronomical role, Stonehenge is also a place of spiritual importance. Early legends link it with Merlin and King Arthur, but over the last hundred years the midsummer sunrise has attracted pagan groups and followers of the Ancient Order of Druids.
Known as 'the City of Dreaming Spires,' Oxford has been a seat of learning since 1249. Enjoy a fascinating walking tour of the city, passing Trinity College, the Sheldonian Theatre, the newly renovated Ashmolean Museum, and Martyr's Memorial. See the Divinity School, made famous by the Harry Potter films, and learn why this magical city inspired so many writers, including Lewis Carroll, JRR Tolkien, and CS Lewis.
