Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

A perfect half-day tour for passengers who are due to fly, you will enjoy a unique tour of Windsor Castle, one of Britain's most treasured landmarks.

After collecting your luggage, you will board the motorcoach at Southampton Docks for a gentle ride through England's most beautiful countryside. Everything you've seen in photographs will come to life; the hedgerows, the thatched cottages and rolling green fields will be a feast for the eyes.

Your guide will narrate your tour as you head to Windsor Great Park, 1,000 glorious acres of stunning woodland, eventually arriving at one of Queen Elizabeth's favorite homes, Windsor Castle.

Here you will enter the courtyard of Lower Ward, which is flanked by pretty St. George's Chapel, and leads to the Round Tower. Your guide will show you around the majestic State Apartments, which boast painted ceilings, panelled walls, enormous fireplaces, antique furniture and paintings. This unique and magnificent suite of ceremonial rooms are still used by the present Queen to entertain visiting Heads of State.

After strolling around this spectacular building you will then cross the courtyard to view one of the most beautiful religious buildings in England, St. George's Chapel. Building began on this striking chapel in 1475 by King Edward IV and took 51 years to complete.

Leaving the castle grounds you will then have a brief amount of free time to explore the main part of Windsor town, which was established back in the Middle Ages. Browse the many shops and boutiques that line the quiet streets of this ancient town before boarding the motorcoach for the airport.

Along the way you will also catch a glimpse of the River Thames, the river that snakes through most of southern England, as well as the country's green rolling fields and cows grazing in the pastures.

Special Notes:

This tour is available to passengers disembarking in Southampton with flights departing Heathrow after 5pm.

Passengers with Princess Air should book a customized air flight ticket to be sure they can participate on a tour the day of disembarkation. Passengers without a customized air flight may not be booked on a flight which will permit them to participate on a tour on the day of disembarkation.

Dress in comfortable layered clothing and wear walking shoes. There is a moderate amount of walking required to visit the various parts of Windsor Castle. Windsor can be closed without notice for Royal functions. Some queuing may be required to access the Castle due to the reinforcement of security measures.

This tour does not include a meal. There is free time to purchase refreshments whilst in Windsor. Local currency is required.

The drive between Southampton and Windsor is approximately 1 1/2 hours.

St. George's Chapel is closed on Sundays for religious services.

Long queues are to be expected at busy times due to the airport-style security at the Castle - we do not recommend this tour to guests flying before 5pm.
