Windsor Castle is No.1 in our list of best day trips from London
Buckingham Palace might be her official residence, but the Queen has long considered Windsor Castle to be her actual home. It's the oldest inhabited castle in the world and the Royal Family have been living there for nearly 1,000 years.
This Exclusive Evening Tour will allow to appreciate its splendour a lot better, away from the thousands of tourists that flood the grounds during the day. Your expert guide will even give you a 'behind-the-ropes' experience in the State Apartments.
The tour will also include entry to the special exhibition that is currently running inside the castle: A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, which displays the wedding outfits that Harry and Meghan wore to their wedding.
At the end of the tour you can enjoy a glass of champagne (or a soft drink), and receive a copy of the official guidebook and 20% off any items you buy in the shop.
