During this 9-hour private guided tour of Windsor Castle & Oxford, you will have the opportunity to discover the Queen's preferred weekend home (Windsor Castle) and the oldest university in the English-speaking world (Oxford).
Our professional driver and our Blue Badge guide will pick you up at your hotel (or apartment) to drive you first to Windsor. There, with your Blue Badge guide, you will be able to jump the queue and begin your private guided visit of the Castle with your passionate guide going through the State Apartments, Queen Mary's Dolls House and St George's Chapel. If you come on some specific times/days, you might have the opportunity to see the Changing of Guards.
After this amazing visit, you will continue into the charming medieval streets of Windsor and you will have a lunch in one of the local restaurants.
Then our professional driver will bring you to Oxford (around 1h10 drive) along with our Blue Badge guide.
Located right in the middle between London and Gloucester, Oxford exudes intellectual activity and scholarly pursuits: it is the second-oldest continually running university, right after the University of Bologna and it includes 38 colleges and 6 permanent private halls. Over the centuries, Oxford has certainly built up an impressive reputation after educating a total of 26 British Prime Minister. Oxford is known as the "City of Dreaming Spires" based on the architecture of the world famous University buildings. No woman was allowed inside the University until 1878 and it is only in 1974 that the last of the all-male colleges opened their doors to women. Its fine, wide streets and noble buildings (and even its pubs!) have been the backdrop for countless TV programmes and films, from Inspector Morse to Harry Potter.
Starting at Christ Church, perhaps the best known of the university's colleges, you will then visit the Sheldonian Theatre, Radcliffe Camera, the Bodleian Library (second largest library in the UK with 11 million items), the Bridge of Sighs, the University Church of St Mary the Virgin, The Queens' College Oxford and the Divinity School (subject to availability and restrictions). With your Blue Badge Guide, you will visit memorials that bear witness to important moments in history, including the memorial to the Oxford martyrs of the Reformation and you will see Charles I's Royalist headquarters in Oxford during the English Civil Wars.
We will then drive you back to London and drop you off at your hotel or apartment.
