first stop will be Windsor Castle where you will visit the
largest “continuously lived in for many centuries”
castle in the world. In visiting the Castle you will see the
Dolls House, the State Apartments St, George’s Chapel
where the Charles and Camilla recently got their blessing
and many of the other rooms where the finest porcelain in
the world is on show. Famous paintings, armours and finest
furniture can be seen amid great halls where State dinners
have been served hundreds of times in the past and present.
Don’t forget to ask the driver the story behind the
four pillars holding up the Town Hall!
Eton is a few steps away just across the Thames, over a very
pretty Windsor and Eaton Bridge, where just before it, on
the left, you can gaze at Sir Christopher Wren’s dwelling
home, now turned into a very attractive Hotel. In Eton there
are a number of very interesting shops and an even more interesting
College where many eminent personalities have graduated.
After the visit at Eton we are off to Oxford. The journey
will take approximately one hour. On approaching Oxford you
will begin to realise how large the City is. You will notice
the great number of Colleges and Universities spreading through
this very busy and lively place. Christchurch College is the
largest of these and is the most apt for visiting. You will
also be taken round to see The Radcliffe Camera (Library),
Brasnose College, Bodleian Library next to the Theatre the
nearby “bridge of Sighs and a visit to the local indoor
market is also a diversion during your “walk at leisure”
Then the return to your hotel will probably be very welcome
after an enjoyable day out.
Because these are individual tours, (up to 16 persons), the
minibuses used for these is far more versatile than the usual
large and cumbersome coaches, so we can take you to see places
where otherwise many tourists undoubtedly miss out.
One other great advantage is that we can stop anywhere you
choose rather than the pre-arranged, obligatory stops tourists
have to do when in larger groups.
The tour will last approximately 8 and half hours departing
from your Hotel at 09.00 returning to the hotel by 17.30.
