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

After breakfast we'll return to London. Our day in the capital begins with our trip to Buckingham Palace. Marvel at the State Rooms - lavishly furnished with many of the greatest paintings, porcelain, sculptures and furniture from the Royal Collection - and visit the Royal Gifts exhibition, which tells the story of the Queen's reign through a wide-ranging display of official gifts presented to Her Majesty by world leaders from every continent over the past 65 years. In the Music Room you'll discover a Tribute to Diana, Princess of Wales. In this very special display you'll see a number of treasures that have been handpicked by her sons - The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry - to reflect her commitment to duty and their personal memories of their mother. Continue exploring to discover the West Terrace's Garden Cafe, which boasts views over the famous lawn, and the exclusive range of merchandise available in the Royal Collection Shop.

Depending on your departure date you'll also be able to pre-book a tour of Clarence House (August), home to the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall, or the exquisite Queen's Gallery (September), which will be hosting a Canaletto and the Art of Venice exhibition - showcasing the world's finest selection of paintings, drawings and prints by Venice's most famous vedutista (view-painter), Canaletto.

Afterwards, we'll take a short sightseeing tour of some of London's other royal sites before beginning our journey home.

Apart from traffic delaying meeting the coach at Sandbach my sister and I enjoyed our trip. Our guide Lynda kept us entertained and kept us well informed re our itinerary. We added Clarence House to our trip which we really enjoyed. Buckingham Palace was busy but lived up to our expectations, it's very opulent. The hotel was fine and we had an unexpected full English breakfast which kept us going on what was a busy day. We have visited Windsor before but enjoyed our visit. We feel the trip us good value for money.

Holiday was great but driver spoiled the trip home. We were last drop off and the driver drove like an idiot on very winding roads causing us to be rather frightened. This is the second year this has happened and when leaving the coach and doing the final part of the journey in a van he drove between 80 and 90 mph. We want to book another trip next year but are concerned that this will happen again. More care is needed over driver times and stops as they lose interest as it gets late. Also we were never given an estimated time home so couldn't easily arrange a lift

Having travelled with Newmarket on many other occasions we were disappointed this time with the organisation. It wasn't until we arrived in Windsor that we were told that we would be picked up from the carpark there to go into London for the theatre. Had we been told this when we purchased the tickets we would not have gone to the theatre, this meant that there was not enough time to visit Windsor Castle. It also meant that we had to change in the public toilets, as we had been travelling since 5.45a.m. We eventually arrived at the hotel at 11p.m. It seems a great shame that better organisation of pick ups cannot be arrange, as we seem to travel miles unnecessarily. Our homeward journey took 8 hours, arriving at almost midnight. This had no reflection on our driver, who was excellent.

Great weekend for Royal supporters. Only thing to let it down was the feeder mini bus pick up taking us from Barnstaple to Okehampton then Exeter to join main coach & then going back to Tiverton. We could have got ourselves to Tiverton without a 2hr journey.Tiverton is only 1hr from Barnstaple. Wish we had been given the option.
