Windsor Castle

Heathrow Airport to Windsor Castle

Of course the main attraction for first time visitors is Windsor Castle and is the 'must see'. Most people will take around 2 hours to explore Windsor Castle, the largest inhabited castle in the world and in pristine condition.

Eton College

Eton College - has educated 18 former British Prime Ministers including the Duke of Wellington, Walpole, Pitt the Elder, MacMillan and Douglas-Holme. The School Dress still consists of a black tailcoat and waistcoat, and pinstriped trousers which dates from the 1850s.

Tours of the College are a fascinating experience, which includes the Cloisters, the Chapel, the oldest classroom in the College and the Museum of Eton Life. Eton High Street is full of galleries and restaurants.

Windsor Tea House

Windsor Riverfront

Windsor riverfront is a good place to relax, Alexander Gardens, a traditional Victorian park borders much of the River Thames at Windsor. The Thames path can be followed all the way back to London or even Oxford. Feeding the swans, boat trips, rowing boats are just some of the evergreen activities you will find here.

Windsor Old Town

Windsor Old Town is right next to the main Windsor Castle entrance. It can seem bordering on tourist tat at times but the buildings and history are authentic and even the most cynical visitor will be tempted into a photograph or two.

Legoland Windsor

Legoland Windsor has over 50 interactive rides, live shows, building workshops, driving schools and attractions and is set in 150 acres of beautiful parkland, LEGOLAND Windsor is a different sort of family theme park. Shuttle buses run out to the park very frequently from Windsor.

Restaurants, Theatre, Horse Racing, Walks and Gardens In Windsor

There is just about every every cuisine available in Windsor itself. From expensive, intimate restaurants overlooking the River Thames to McDonalds and Pizza Hut. wine bars and pubs. You would need a month or more to sample all there is in Windsor.

Windsor has its own theatre with some afternoon matinee performances as well as evenings, a horse race circuit by the river with mostly summer evening meetings, long walks in Windsor Great Park, the Queen's back garden and much more besides.

Stonehenge Option Too

Stonehenge is about 75 minutes drive from both Windsor and Heathrow, if you have the time and inclination you can combine both or just visit Stonehenge.

From 2014 you will need around 90-120 minutes to visit Stonehenge to view and take in this world famous monument. You will also need to book tickets in advance on the Stonehenge web-site to guarantee seats on the shuttle that runs between the visitor centre and Stonehenge itself..

Full Size Touring Coaches For Large Groups

If you have a large group then that is not a problem either

The largest coaches are 50 seat coaches but we also have access to vehicles half that size.

With large groups if your average passenger is bringing more than one large case and a small item of hand luggage it might be the luggage capacity of the vehicle rather than the number of passengers that drives the correct size of vehicle required. The point being that estimating the amount of luggage you will be bringing is just as important as knowing how many people in your group.
