A visit to Royal Windsor is the first port of call on this terrific value 2 day break incorporating two of the most iconic English Royal residences. Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world. It has been the family home of British kings and queens for almost 1,000 years and is one of the official residences of Her Majesty The Queen. Windsor is still very much a working royal palace and is used regularly for ceremonial and State occasions. Within the Castle Precincts is St George’s Chapel, the spiritual home of the Order of the Garter, the oldest order of chivalry in the world.

Enjoy a further glimpse of Royal life and State occasions at Buckingham Palace, which has served as the official London residence of Britain’s sovereigns since 1837 and today is the administrative headquarters of the monarch.

The Royal household is lavishly furnished with exquisite treasures, and a tour of the State Rooms is sure to be the highlight of your visit. In addition, a special exhibition is taking place in 2013 to mark the 60th anniversary of The Queen’s Coronation. At the heart of the displays will be Her Majesty’s spectacular Coronation Dress, designed by Norman Hartnell, and the Coronation Robe, richly embroidered by the Royal School of Needlework. Also on display will be an unprecedented selection of dress and uniforms worn by other members of the Royal Family and the maids of honour, and works of art connected with the Coronation. In addition, you have the opportunity to extend your time at the Palace with a tour of the gardens.
