Inside the State Apartments, the grandest in all of England, you will explore the same rooms that are used today by The Queen and members of the Royal Family. The walls in each room are adorned with incredible paintings and murals from history's most famous artists and lined with priceless treasures from all over the world.
Later, you'll visit the scene of one of the most famous royal weddings of recent times. It was in St George's Chapel where HRH Prince Harry married Meghan Markle in 2018 in a ceremony broadcast to millions around the world.
Stonehenge is perhaps one of the most famous Neolithic monuments in the world. Plenty of mystery and intrigue surrounds this ancient site, and its construction and origin has divided opinion and stirred controversy over the many years since its discovery.
There are plenty of things to see and do during your time visiting this famous UNESCO World Heritage Site.
- Take a walk around the perimeter of the Stone Circle; an essential part of any visit
- Step inside reconstructed Neolithic houses to see how people lived 4,500 years ago
- Watch a display of ancient domestic skills, including flint knapping, rope making and grinding grain
- Visit the 360-degree audio-visual display at the visitor centre and see what it feels like to stand in the middle of the Stone Circle
- Visit the world-class exhibition centre, where over 250 objects and treasures are on display, including jewellery, pottery and even ancient human remains
We end our day with a visit to 'The City of Dreaming Spires', perhaps best known for its world-famous university and incredible architecture. The origins of Oxford University can be traced back to the 11th century, making it the oldest university in the English-speaking world.
Throughout the city, elegant stone spires and domes rise up into the city skyline from medieval stone buildings. Little surprise, then, that this beautiful city has provided the backdrop for countless movie and TV series, including Harry Potter.
Enjoy a walking tour of the city with our expert guide, who will bring the history and charm of this beautiful city to life. As you walk through the cobbled streets, you'll see architecture from every period in English history, from early Saxon right through to Gothic Revival.
