Take a day trip to see two of London's most impressive Royal palaces -- Windsor Castle and Hampton Court.

Your early morning start onboard an air-conditioned coach in Victoria will start with some entertaining tales and trivia from your lively guide, before arriving at the 900-year old Windsor Castle -- the world's largest working castle and the favourite home of the late Queen Elizabeth II.

A total of 39 British monarchs dating all the way back to William the Conqueror have lived here, and you'll be able to step inside the richly furnished State Apartments to see masterpieces by the likes of Holbein, Rubens and Van Dyck and Rubens. (Note: When the State Apartments are closed the castle precincts, Drawings Gallery and Queen Mary’s Dolls House will remain open.)

You'll also be able to visit St George’s Chapel where some of England's greatest monarchs are buried, including Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth II herself.

Then you'll jump back on the coach for the drive to Hampton Court -- the Tudor palace of Henry VIII.

You'll be able to look around the Tudor kitchens, the Great Hall, and see the beautiful starry ceiling of the Chapel Royal where Henry once heard mass with Anne Boleyn. You might also like to walk around the ornamental gardens -- but don't get lost in the world famous maze!
