Remembering "The People's Princess"

With 2017 marking the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana's death, a new exhibition at Kensington Palace celebrates her life and the evolution of her image and style. The palace was a place of unique significance in the Princess's life and was the focus of a worldwide tribute following her death as thousands of people left an unforgettable sea of flowers at the gates. Echoing this tribute 20 years on, the palace gardeners commemorate the Princess's life with a beautiful White Garden reflecting the seasons from spring to late summer.

Itinerary

Day One

Leaving your local pick-up point, this morning we'll head to Royal Windsor. Wander the pretty streets, and explore the tea rooms, art galleries and boutiques of this lovely riverside town. Alternatively, visit Windsor Castle - the largest inhabited castle in the world (entry payable locally). See the lavish State Apartments including St George's Hall, the Grand Reception Room and the new Lantern Lobby. There's also a fascinating exhibition about the 1992 fire and the subsequent restoration.

In the late afternoon we'll continue to London and our hotel.

Day Two

This morning we'll head to Kensington Palace, which is about a 15 minute walk through Kensington Gardens from the coach drop-off point. Like Windsor, it remains a working royal residence as the official London home of Prince William and his family, as well as other members of the Royal Family. See some of the finest in the Royal Collection, which hang in pride of place along the King's Gallery, and the surprisingly intimate Queen's Apartments. Learn about life in the Stuart and Georgian royal courts, and marvel at the Palace's new exhibition - Diana: Her Fashion Story.

The highlight of your visit, the exhibition charts the Princess's changing style and image over the years. See items from her wardrobe that were selected to complement a range of different occasions - whether formal, charity or glamorous galas. From late April, you'll also have the opportunity to stroll through the new, commemorative White Garden and past the paved terraces ornamental pond and brilliant beds of the Sunken Garden.

We'll leave London in the mid-afternoon, arriving back at your original pick-up point by mid-to-late evening.

Disappointed we could not visit St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle - closed for Services as we visited on a Sunday. Very pleased with location of St Giles Hotel, eg central London. Driver took a dislike to our Courier - we sat in seats 1 and 2 so could see what occurred. Courier asked Driver to turn off his radio and I believe that soured their relationship. He had had it really low and personally I welcomed the background music. On return journey Courier reached across to switch microphone on and Driver told her in no uncertain terms NOT to touch his area while coach in motion. Unbelievably soon after that discussion she touched his arm - you can imagine how he responded to that. So not a happy ship as we returned to Devon. Courier retreated to rear of coach once a few passengers disembarked in Yeovil and Honiton.

Coach departure time was delayed 1hr due to misunderstanding between Coach provider and yourselves! We travelled from Bideford to Tiverton Services then to Exeter Services and then back to Tiverton Bus station ?!!

This meant time was short at Windsor and four hours was too long at Kensington - should have been the other way round!

The coach was old and a seat in front of us was broken.

Tour guide rude. Needs a course on people skills. We went to WINDSOR CASTLE which was good and had to walk up to the entrance. It needs a closer drop off point for the less mobile people. KENSINGTON PALACE was again a lovely place but again a closer drop off point for the less mobile people. The tour guide we had kept marching off and a couple of the people (one includes my sister) had a hard job to keep up with her due to there illnesses. Not one person on our coach had a good word for our tour guide.
