Windsor Castle - a home to our royal family for over 900 years, the favourite residence of the Queen. A picturesque stroll to Eton town and stories about the famous Eton College - school of the ruling elite for nearly 600 years.

Otherwise I would meet you at Paddington Station in London or at railway station in Windsor if you are travelling from elsewhere. This tour can be customised in various ways and there are many possible versions of it. While the castle is closed during the pandemic, we can have a shorter walking tour around Windsor and Eton towns. The price would be adjusted accordingly. The Windsor Great Park is worth exploring: it is possible to do it by car stopping for short walks, or a hiking type long walk.
