Itinerary

Day One

Leaving the local area in the early morning we'll head to Royal Windsor. Wander the pretty streets of this lovely riverside town, or pre-purchase tickets to Windsor Castle to see the magnificent State Apartments.

After a pleasant afternoon in Windsor we'll continue to our overnight hotel.

Day Two

Today we head to Buckingham Palace for a guided tour of this iconic royal residence's delightful gardens. Discover the beautiful herbaceous border, the wisteria-clad summer house, the Rose Garden, the enormous Waterloo Vase and the Palace Tennis Court on which King George VI and Fred Perry 'crossed racquets' in the 1930s.

Your visit will also include time to explore the Palace itself: the Grand Staircase, the State Dining Room, the magnificent Ballroom, the Music Room and the Picture Gallery. Wander through the 'Fashioning a Reign' exhibition, which looks back over 90 years of Her Majesty's style. Enjoy views over the Garden's famous lawn from the West Terrace's new Garden Cafe and browse the Royal Collection Shop's exclusive merchandise.

After your time at the Palace you'll take a short, afternoon 'Royal London' sightseeing tour before we begin our journey home, arriving back in the local area by mid to late evening.

Hazel our tour manager and James our driver were exceptional, extremely helpful and informative contributing greatly to the holiday.
The hotel was a great choice and the food, service and staff were all of a high standard.

Weymouth Friends
Very enjoyable holiday. We would travel with you again. One complaint the coffee machine in the coach was not working, and the journey was very long mainly because of traffic, most people in the coach needed a drink. It took us 7hours to come home to Weymouth from London.

Dockenfield Friends
Well organised,had plenty of time everywhere,did not feel at all rushed. Only downside was horrendous traffic getting in and out of London but that can't be helped. Hotel very comfortable ,clean and good bar meal. Though have to say barman did not appear to concentrate on the particular person he was serving and went off at a tangent speaking/dealing with othermatters and as a result did not listen and got order wrong and we had to correct him. But overall a fantastic trip and to be recommended.

Billingham Friends
The break was very enjoyable, the driver and tour guide were excellent and contributed greatly to the pleasure of the trip. It took a long time to get there and back due to the widespread pick ups and drop offs but I still enjoyed it. I think you should put the pick up times on the initial information as the early start might have made me think twice.
