Waterloo Railway Station (meet by the main ticket office, opposite Platform 16) | Map
Guided by Simon W.
Camelot on the silvery Thames. A 1,000-year-old castle commanding the Great Park and brooding over a mediaeval town. The most famous royal residence in the world. "The architectural epitome of the English nation... its fabric provides an insight into the evolving ideas about kingship and related rituals, about techniques of military defence, and about developing expectations of domestic comfort and convenience. But despite its familiar appearance, nothing at Windsor is quite what it seems... behind its imposing walls and gates lie centuries of secrecy, intrigue and forgotten visions of grandeur." And just over the footbridge, Eton – where the superlatives peal like bells. The most famous school in the world; the nursery of kings; the crucible of a defining moment in history: "the Battle of Waterloo was won on the playing fields of Eton." Guided by Guiding Royalty: Award-winning Simon W.
The Windsor Castle & Eton Excursion takes place at 9.30 am on Saturday, June 22 and at 9.30 am on Saturday, August 10. Meet Simon W. by the main ticket office – it's directly opposite platform 16 – of WaterlooRailway Station.
If you can't make one of the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Windsor Castle & Eton Excursions do think about booking one as a private tour.
