Tour some of London's most celebrated palaces and majestic homes on
this 2-day coach holiday. These popular tours offer guests a rare look
behind the curtains of British influence and power. A tour through
Buckingham Palace introduces guests to impressive state rooms, and gives
them a peek into the lives of the royal children through the new palace
exhibition. A trip to Windsor completes this Newmarket Holidays tour.
A trip to lovely Windsor on Day One finds guests strolling down Windsor's cobbled Church Street, where there is an air of having travelled back in time. The classic buildings in this district have stood for several hundred years, and include the house where Eleanor "Nell" Gwynne, mistress of King Charles II, lived. Guests can take tea at Windsor's famous Market Cross House, one of the city's oldest houses, which leans severely to the right, and just to its left is Britain's shortest street. While there is plenty of time for independent exploration, travellers have the option of going to visit Windsor Castle.
A Day in London
After a relaxing night in a comfortable Windsor hotel, the tour returns to London for an exciting day of sightseeing. Begin with a guided tour of Buckingham Palace, where lavishly furnished State Rooms boast age-old treasures such as paintings, sculptures and furniture from the Royal Collection. A visit to the "Royal Childhood" exhibit depicts palace life for the young members of the royal family. The Garden Café on the West Terrace offers guests a stunning view of the palace's 42-acre lawn, where the Queen holds garden parties and where helicopters bearing important guests arrive. After leaving Buckingham Palace, the group takes a brief sightseeing tour of select royal sites around the city.
