After a leisurely breakfast at the hotel, we depart by coach and travel to Windsor Promenade where we embark on a scenic cruise along the Thames. Enjoy the views from the top deck as we cruise upstream past the famous royal Windsor Racecourse and Eton College before heading downstream to see the most famous view of Windsor Castle from the river and on through Romney lock.

We include a delicious ploughman’s lunch with cake and tea/coffee on board whilst the boat makes a turn at Old Windsor weir. After the cruise, we head to Windsor Castle which is the largest and oldest occupied Castle in the world.

Established in the 11th century by William the Conqueror, it has been remodelled by successive kings and queens, including Edward III, Charles II and George IV, and restored during Queen Elizabeth II’s reign after the fire in 1992. Today the Castle is used regularly for ceremonial and State occasions and has been the home of 40 monarchs. We include entrance to the castle, and you’ll have free time to explore before we return to the hotel.
