Royal Windsor

In this regal tour we visit the Queen’s weekend home of Windsor Castle, sumptuous Hampton Court Palace, beautiful RHS Garden Wisley and fascinating Brooklands Museum. Based at the terrific, refurbished Beaumont Estate Hotel, our tour is fit for a king, or queen!

Mark says…
"Following an extensive refurbishment, this hotel has taken great efforts to make the whole hotel more personable and build upon the history of the original estate.

This holiday is part of the Great West Way, a 125-mile route linking London to Bristol. It follows one of the first Great Roads commissioned by the Kings of England and showcases every day England and world-famous heritage, combining a mesmerising mix of picture postcard villages, rolling hills and historic cities.
