Description

Discover the wonderland of Windsor-on-Thames and explore the best of Windsor on this day trip with Black Cab Heritage Tours.

Located on the South Bank of the River Thames, the town is dominated by Windsor Castle, the largest and oldest inhabited castle in the world. The Queen of England has made it her home and it’s her favourite holiday residence, and yes, it’s worth all the fuss.

Your first stop will be Runnymede Field, described as a meadow between Windsor and Staines, where King John signed the Magna Carta more than eight centuries ago in 1215.

Known as the birthplace of modern democracy, the Magna Carta influenced key declarations of human rights and its principles of freedom.

Once in Windsor, you will enjoy a guided walking tour that lasts 45-60 minutes, followed by a caffeine fix at an atmospheric English cafe, and jaw-dropping moments at the official residence of Her Majesty the Queen.

You will also visit St. George’s Chapel, the tombs of many English Kings and Queens, and the venue of the celeb-wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markel. 

Let it all settle at a lunch table relaxing at a riverside restaurant away from the buzzy bars of the High Street or have a traditional afternoon tearoom with chintzy china in the village.

There will be free time later to visit Eton College, where 13 British Prime Ministers and Princes William and Harry studied. You could pamper yourself with some shop browsing or take a stroll along the River Thames.

If you want to visit Windsor Castle, save yourself the hassle of long queues by pre-ordering Windsor Castle tickets with us.

We loved our tour of Eton and Windsor. Paul was so knowledgeable and his warm demeanor made the day incredible. He managed to get us into the Doll House which is not open to the public.

We hired a car and driver for a private tour to Windsor and were very pleased with the experience. Our driver Mark was excellent, he was very informative with an awesome sense of humor. Mark made us reservations at a wonderful riverside restaurant and stopped so we could share a pint at a quaint local pub. Our kids still talk about this trip with Mark. I would highly recommend hiring Black Cab Heritage for anyone wanting a uniquely British experience.

We had an amazing tour of Windsor with Barry — one of the awesome tour guides from Black Cab Heritage (In previous years we have toured London and Stone Henge/Lacock/Bath with Craig who is also great!)

We had been in Wales on a trip and then arrived in London and dropped out rental car off at the airport. Barry picked us up at the rental car place and took us on the Windsor tour and dropped us at our AirBnB at the end of the day. This was the last day Windsor was open before closing down for Covid-19 lockdown. We had the ‘luck’ of having a lot of the places to ourselves and Barry was very informative and fun to talk to and learn from. I highly recommend Black Cab Heritage if you are in London and looking to do some excursions or even get around town. You don’t have to think about driving or the details of when and where you are going, and the tour guide/drivers are all excellent at what they do! We will be doing other tours with them in the future.
