· Windsor Castle  -   is the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world, and one of the official residences of Her Majesty The Queen.

The Castle's dramatic site encapsulates 900 years of British history and covers an area of 26 acres. Highlights include the magnificent State and Semi-State Apartments furnished with treasures from the Royal Collection and St George's Chapel where royal weddings take place, and ten monarchs are buried.





· Hampton Court Palace   -  is a story of two palaces: a Tudor palace magnificently developed by Cardinal Wolsey and later Henry VIII, alongside a Baroque palace built by William III and Mary II. Meet Henry VIII and his court in the magnificent Tudor Palace. Feel the heat in the vast Tudor Kitchens and the eerie chill of the Haunted Gallery. In Henry’s  State Apartments, see his stunningly recreated Imperial Crown in the Royal Pew before sneaking below stairs to indulge in his vast Tudor Kitchens. Over 60 acres of  beautiful gardens featuring sparkling fountains run down to the River Thames.


· Royal Savill Garden  -  one of the finest woodland gardens in the country. In 1932 Queen Mary gave Sir Eric Savill permission to develop a 35 acre garden in Windsor Great Park. Delight in the vibrant colour of the beautiful herbaceous borders and the eye catching Savill Building. With plants collected from around the world, there is a wonderful journey of discovery to be had. Savill Garden is one of the finest royal gardens within Windsor Great Park.



· Royal Botanic Garden Kew  -  A UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Breath-taking natural beauty, world-class science and over 260 years of history combined. Explore the world’s largest and most diverse collection of living plants. We have a guided tour to see stunning landscapes, iconic buildings and inspirational art.



·  Highclere Castle (Downton Abbey) -  one of England's most beautiful Victorian Castles set amidst 1,000 acres of spectacular parkland. The Carnarvon family has lived at Highclere since 1679, and the current Castle stands on the site of a medieval palace. Straight away, you will recognise many rooms from “Downton Abbey." These include the Drawing Room in which Maggie Smith delivered many a withering comment to some unfortunate relation.



· The Egyptian Exhibition The Castle was the seat, 100 years ago, of the 5th Earl of Carnarvon, who famously discovered the Tomb of the Egyptian Boy Pharaoh, Tutankhamun, in 1922 with Howard Carter. The Egyptian Exhibition runs throughout the cellars of the Castle, celebrating the 5th Earl’s achievements.
