Before we start our Windsor Castle Tour, you have a truly spectacular view.  Marvel at the medieval castle, nestled right in the heart of a modern town centre. 

Once we clear security, we are inside the Royal residence with a vast area to explore. Let’s start by taking a short stroll to see if Her Majesty is in today? Moving on we pass the original parts of the castle, dating from the 11th Century.  Before moving inside, there’s also time here to admire the perfectly manicured gardens.

Visiting Windsor Castle 

Your private guide can explain why the castle was built here, then you can enjoy the views from the North terrace 30m (100ft) above the River Thames. When entering the State Apartments prepare to be dazzled by the decorative gold, rooms truly fit for a King or Queen. There is so much to see on a Windsor Castle tour, where else can you find pieces by Titian and Rembrandt hanging next to each other? All the artefacts are part of the Royal collection, they are moved around the castle and sometimes loaned to other exhibits.  Don’t worry though, your Blue Badge Guide will make sure you see the best of what’s on display during your private tour of Windsor Castle. 

Leaving the State Apartments we have time to visit the gift shop, maybe you’d like your own gold ornament to dazzle your guests at home! 

Royal Weddings & Burials

Now is our chance to visit somewhere famous from more recent history, St Georges chapel. Venue for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, but also many more weddings over the years. We are aware of its recent use as a working church, but your private guide can tell you much more about this beautiful gothic structure. Final resting place for several British Monarchs, mind your step, don’t tread on the tomb of Henry VIII as we make our way around!

Before our tour leaves the Windsor Castle grounds, you have a chance to take picture of the Queen’s guards.  These soldiers in their beautiful uniforms, make sure all is safe within the walls of the Royal residence. 

Exploring Windsor and Eton

Back in the town centre, we start our stroll. Let’s explore the shortest street in England, it will take only seconds. Walking towards the Long Walk we’re treated again to spectacular views of Windsor Castle. This 2.64-mile walk is lined mostly with oak trees and still used today by the Royal Family, as they make their way to annual horse racing events at nearby Ascot.

Walking across a Windsor Bridge over the River Thames we arrive in Eton.  Your guide will explain all about the education pupils receive here at Eton College and tell you about the Old Etonians, many of whom you will recognise, such as:

  • Boris Johnson
  • Prince William
  • George Orwell
  • Bear Grylls
  • Ian Flemming

We then have time to browse Eton High Street admiring the local architecture and the exterior of this famous college.

Your guide will escort you back to Windsor town and happily help with directions or suggestions for the rest of your stay.  If you enjoyed your Tour of Windsor Castle, we’re sure you’d also enjoy a Tower of London Tour.

The highlight of our UK trip This was an unforgettable experience for the whole family, including our 8 year old daughter. Our tour guide Lucy was excellent, and it really helped to have an expert explain each of the areas we explored. There is so much we would have missed without her. She really brought the place to life with her storytelling and expertise. Did I mention how well the kids liked her too! If you are going to splurge on one thing in London, this is it.

Highly recommend. Great for both adults and children Fantastic tour with Denisa. We had 3 adults and our 7 year old grandson, and she did a great job of engaging and educating all of us. She customized the tour for our interests/ages, and we visited the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and HMS Belfast.We couldn't have been more happy with our experience

DO IT Wow wow wow. This was a great tour. Everything was perfect. I don't often take tours - usually want to explore on my own. This was a short trip and we wanted to pack as much in as possible so we decided to book a tour. I've now become a fan of tours. Marina waited for us at the meeting point ahead of schedule. She was pleasant and extremely knowledgeable, even in answering our questions that were not directly related to the tour. She was prepared and kept us all engaged - adults and teens. It was clear she was prepared to engage any age. I was worried that I'd feel "trapped" in a long tour but it was the exact opposite - the day went by so easily and comfortably and I can't believe how much we saw and learned. I could not recommend the tour any more strongly.

Terrific Tower of London tour My family loved this private tour! We learned so much from our guide and loved being her sole focus. My girls could ask lots of questions and feel comfortable doing so!

Best Way to Tour the Tower Where to begin? These ladies run a top-notch operation. Their service levels are unparalled. Their knowledge base is incredible, which is only matched by their excellent communication before the tour, and follow up after with little tidbits of information. Book with them, and you will not be disappointed.
