Your tour begins with a visit to Windsor Castle, the oldest and largest occupied castle in world and home to British kings and queens for over 900 years. Venture into the opulent State Apartments to discover a statue of Queen Victoria, the Waterloo Chamber, the King’s Rooms, Queen’s Rooms and world-famous masterpieces by the likes of Leonardo da Vinci and Rembrandt. You’ll also get to explore St George’s Chapel - the setting for many royal weddings and the final resting place of Queen Elizabeth II. If you’re visiting on a Thursday or Saturday, listen out for the triumphant tunes of troops in red uniforms and bearskin caps at the Changing of the Guard ceremony. Continue to visit mysterious Stonehenge where you can wander around this 5,000-year-old monument, declared a world heritage site, and be captivated by the unique rock formation rising up against the skyline on Salisbury Plain. Stonehenge’s origins have puzzled experts for hundreds of years, so make up your own mind and solve the mystery yourself! Don't forget to visit the award-winning visitor centre where you can see 250 archaeological objects discovered in the landscape, contemporary art, photographs, the large shop, and a café. Just outside the visitor centre, you'll also find a recreation of the Neolithic houses found during excavations in 2006 & 2007. In the afternoon discover the beauty of Bath. Standing proudly on the slopes of the River Avon, Bath is a stunning Georgian city and the first in England designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. It’s home to the world-famous Roman Baths, one of the best historic attractions in the country.
