In the morning we visit Windsor where 900 years of Royal history are waiting for us. We enjoy a walking tour of this beautiful town, where we see what is now the largest continuously occupied castle in the world. If the Royal flag is flying, the Queen’s at home. We also visit historic Eton, home to Britain’s most famous public school, where 18 former British Prime Ministers once studied.
We continue to the oldest and arguable the most famous university city in England. The university is spread across the town centre among 39 separate colleges ranging in age from 50 to over 600 years. We'll see Christ Church, the grandest and most popular of all its Colleges. Founded nearly 500 years ago it has educated many big names, was used for scenes in the Harry Potter films, and is home to the smallest cathedral in the country. During the tour we’ll hear stories about Oxford’s famous students like Bill Clinton and Lewis Carroll, and get a feel for what student life must be like. In the afternoon we'll have free time to explore this great city at our leisure.
