Windsor Castle Tour
Built high above the River Thames, Windsor Castle has been home to the Royal Family for 900 years and is still an Official Residence of the Queen. We visit the magnificent State Apartments*, still used for State occasions and Royal receptions. Take some time to explore the castle grounds and the fourteenth-century St. George’s Chapel, one of the most beautiful examples of medieval church architecture in England and a burial place of kings and queens, including Henry VIII and his third wife Jane Seymour.
Clouded in mystery, the ancient stone circle of Stonehenge is an amazing feat of engineering and the most important prehistoric site in England, but beyond its archaeological significance and possible astronomical role, Stonehenge is also a place of spiritual importance. Early legends link it with Merlin and King Arthur, but over the last hundred years the midsummer sunrise has attracted pagan groups and followers of the Ancient Order of Druids.
This is the city of Dreaming Spires and home to the world’s most famous university. Its colleges date back to the 13th century, an inspiration to generations of scholars including President Bill Clinton, and the authors J R R Tolkien, Lewis Carroll and C S Lewis. Your Evan Evans guide will take you on a walking tour to see Christ Church college, the Bodleian Library and the Sheldonian Theatre.
When you arrive at Oxford, you will have a choice of one of the following options:
Option 1*: Entry to Christchurch College where Harry Potter was filmed
Option 2: Walking Tour and free time at your leisure
Admission to Windsor Castle and Stonehenge is included in the tour price.
*Viewing at Windsor Castle is restricted on Sundays. On rare occasions the State Apartments may be closed

St. George’s Chapel is open daily but closed to visitors on Sundays as services are held throughout the day. In addition, St George’s Chapel is closed on the following dates:
23 December (closed from 1pm)
As a working Royal palace, the Castle is used frequently by The Queen for State ceremonies and official entertaining and opening arrangements may change with no notice.
