Remembering "The People's Princess"
Join us in Kensington Palace to celebrate the life of Princess Diana, 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.
Princess Diana Exhibition Itinerary
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.
Day One: Included Windsor coach trip
In the late afternoon we'll continue to London and our hotel.
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 exhibition - Diana: Her Fashion Story.
Day Two: Included Kensington Palace tour
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. 2018 is the second and final year of the exhibition, and sees a number of changes from the start of May, including further exquisite outfits from throughout the Princess's public life, and some items never before displayed at Kensington Palace.
We'll leave London in the mid afternoon, arriving back at your original pick-up point by mid-to-late evening.
Your final travel documents, including the exact time and place of departure, will be sent to you approximately 10 days prior to departure, providing all payments have been made. We are unable to give exact departure times before this.
Joining your holiday
Your Tour Manager will have allocated seats for you on the main coach in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible, and will advise you where to sit as you board the coach. This will be your seat for the duration of the tour. (Seats are not allocated on any connecting services to and from the main coach.)
Coach seating arrangements
Where meals are not included, your Tour Manager will ensure there are suitable stops made for you to purchase and enjoy lunch and/or dinner each day.
If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.
The majority of these consist of a double bed and an extra bed that is often only suitable for children. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.
The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
