Saturday After a morning departure from your local pick–up point we will travel by coach to Windsor, where there will be time to explore the town and perhaps go around the Castle†, stroll down The Long Walk in Windsor Great Park, wander in Windsor Forest, or even take a short boat trip up the Thames from Windsor Promenade. In the late afternoon/early evening we will continue on to your hotel in good time for dinner and your overnight stay.
†A Castle visit normally takes around 2–3 hours. We recommend you check the Castle's website and pre–book to avoid queues.
Sunday A princely full English breakfast first, then we travel into central London for our timed morning admission to Buckingham Palace. It's huge – there are carpets as big as cricket fields, state rooms the size of bus depots, and lofty vaulted corridors dripping with Holbeins and Van Dykes. In Queen Victoria's time it was a family house, and a happy one too, full of songs and parties, but after Albert died Victoria shuttered herself and the Palace away in sorrow and perpetual mourning. At last, in 1901, Edward VII and his fashionable Marlborough Set brought joie de vivre back to Buckingham Palace, and he had the whole place done out in the latest Belle Époque colours; gold, cream, and a riot of reds and pinks. These colours are still in favour today, and it remains the ultimate show home and an amazing place to visit. There will be plenty of time to look around the Palace and check out the souvenir shop before we set off for home in the mid–afternoon.
