ItineraryDay 1 Morning departure for the journey to Windsor Castle. Founded by William the Conqueror in the 11th century, it has since been the home of 39 monarchs and the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world. The magnificent state apartments are furnished with some of the finest works of art from the Royal Collection. The most striking room is the Grand Reception Room with its chandeliers and gilding, it was once used as the main ballroom in the Castle. Within the grounds you will find St George’s Chapel, one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture in England. After the visit enjoy some free time in the town before a late afternoon transfer to the hotel.
Day 2 After breakfast, depart the hotel and travel into London to Kensington Palace. First visit the Sunken Garden, originally planted in 1908. In 2017 the garden was completely re-planted in white flowers to reflect and celebrate the life of Princess Diana. In 2021 the Duke of Cambridge and Duke of Sussex unveiled a statue in tribute to their late mother. The memorial is located in the Sunken Garden in Princess Diana’s favourite place, and marks what would have been her 60th birthday. You will then enter the Palace itself and explore the birthplace of Queen Victoria and home to young royals for over 300 years. Walk in the footsteps of royalty in Victoria’s re- imagined childhood rooms and the magnificent King’s State Apartments and Queen’s State Apartments. Marvel at the King’s Staircase and the King’s Gallery. You will have plenty of time to explore, take lunch in the café or treat yourself to afternoon tea in the Kensington Palace Pavilion which overlooks the Sunken Garden. The coach will depart at approx. 16.00 hours for the homeward journey.
