The Bodleian Library is the main research library of the University of Oxford, and is one of the oldest libraries in Europe. With over 12 million items, it is the second-largest library in Britain after the British Library.
The Sheldonian Theatre, located in Oxford, England, was built from 1664 to 1669 after a design by Christopher Wren for the University of Oxford. The building is named after Gilbert Sheldon, chancellor of the University at the time and the project's main financial backer.
Our first stop is Windsor Castle, the ancestral home of the British Royal family for more than 900 years and the largest, continuously occupied castle in Europe. Marvel at the splendour of the State Apartments, the grandest apartments in England, where paintings by Van Dyck and Rubens hang from the walls and the ceilings are painted with elaborate, magnificent murals.
Step inside St George’s Chapel, where HRH Prince Harry married Ms Meghan Markle and the tombs of prominent previous monarchs are located, including Henry VIII and Charles I. Don’t miss a colourful display of typical British pageantry that takes place every morning at the Changing the Guard ceremony, where the handover of duties between guards to the Queen takes place. If Her Majesty is in Windsor during your visit, you may be lucky enough to see the Royal Standard flying on the flagpole of the Round Tower. (If option selected.)
St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle in England, is a chapel designed in the high-medieval Gothic style. It is both a Royal Peculiar, a church under the direct jurisdiction of the monarch, and the Chapel of the Order of the Garter. Seating approximately 800, it is located in the Lower Ward of the castle. (If option selected.)
It was a great day and Alex was such a knowledgeable and professional guide. Our highlight was Stonehenge. We recommend this trip to anyone who wants to spend the day in the English countryside and visit some truly remarkable historical sights.
A full day but packed with information and details. Our 2/19 tour with Emily was as much teacher as guide in a most interesting way. Intelligent and cheerful. Early arrival at Windsor cut wait time to fraction. Smart scheduling. Comfortable motor coach.
We wanted to see Stonehenge while in the UK. We took the trip to Windsor, Stonehenge, and Oxford. It was a quick glimpse at all of the sites. We went in February so there were not any crowds. I feel like I was able to see just enough of each place.
Excellent trip - the guide Kevin was great - thorough knowledge of history and interesting stories. There was enough time built in at all sites, considering the time and schedule. Would rebook with this group. But they are serious about leaving on time in order to maintain a schedule- we did have to leave some people behind at one site.
This is a great tour, but be prepared that it is a very long day, and they do not provide a boxed lunch. If you feel you will need food, come prepared. Although there is a food court at Windsor station where you can QUICKLY purchase a sandwich to eat on the bus. I did not give this a 5 due to our tour guide. He spent an inordinate amount of time talking about himself. Almost everything we saw could relate to some “interesting” story from his university or military days. In a tour guide I require someone personable who can intersperse the information with a few cute stories, I am not interested in their biography.
If you do come prepared with food (No HOT food or drinks are allowed on the buses) and are prepared for a long day this is a great tour. The only place I found a lot of stairs was from the bus park to Windsor Castle. Otherwise everything was quite walkable.
We did the 3 sites in one day... it turned out to be an 12 hour day with the longest time in any one place to be about 1.5-2 hours. The line getting into Windsor Castle was horrendous and severely cut into the time we could have spent. We believe it would be better to book 2 of the 3 sites and spent more quality time at each place rather than run through and be under the gun to be back at the bus at a given time. We thoroughly enjoyed our guide Alexandra and bus driver Paul...he was an excellent driver through some very tight spots and Alex was extremely knowledge, funny and very pleasant. Overall a good day but just too much squeezed into one day.
