Windsor Castle

The oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world has been the home of British monarchs for almost 1000 years. Situated 20 miles West of London, it is the favourite weekend retreat of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth.

We will visit the State Apartments – furnished with some of the finest works of art from the Royal Collection – and see Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House. Made in 1935, it contains working electric lights, and miniature furniture and accessories created by leading artists of the day.

The Chapel of St George has seen royal weddings and burials since 1348 and is the spiritual home of the Order of the Garter, the world’s oldest order of chivalry.

Hampton Court Palace and Gardens

Five hundred years ago Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, close friend and chief minister to Henry VIII, began transforming a grand private house on the banks of the River Thames into a magnificent palace – so lavish that the King was soon to claim it for himself.

With its sumptuous State Apartments, Great Hall, vast kitchens, tennis courts and pleasure gardens, it became the most important of Henry’s many homes. In 1537, his longed-for son (later Edward VI) was born there.

When King William III and Queen Mary came to the throne in 1689, new State Apartments in the fashionable Baroque style were added.

In 1838, the young Queen Victoria ordered that Hampton Court should be thrown open to all her subjects “without restriction”.

``Glyn Jones was very much a gracious host of his lovely country. Our first stop was Arundel Castle, where he was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. Next stop was a lunch he arranged at the Black Rabbit. Good choice Glyn! Then it was on to Brighton by the sea. Coming back into London, he made a special detour to the Hard Rock Café so I could pick up a souvenir shot glass for my son's collection. If we ever get back to the London area, he is my go to guide!``
