Don't mind sharing with other travelers? Join one of our semi-private small group tours to discover two of the most historic palaces of the British royal family.

Remember that our scheduled group tours are unique. Unlike the large bus tours, ours is not just a transfer service with free time at each location to "wander". Our tours include fully escorted guided visits with your group's professional tour guide throughout all the permitted areas at each location.

We also don't keep our guests waiting to start a tour for up to 2 hours while the tour vehicle drives around collecting passengers from different hotels around London: our scheduled group tours start at the published times, with all the group departing together.

Hampton Court Palace

After your morning departure from London, guests arrive at the best surviving residence of King Henry VIII for a fully guided private group tour. Situated on the banks of the River Thames, Hampton Court Palace is a true Tudor masterpiece.

Experience the splendours of Henry's court as your guide takes you through the majestic Tudor Kitchens, built to feed at least 600 people twice a day. Admire the King's State Apartments, including the largest and greatest medieval hall in England, before being escorted to discover the best of the Palace Gardens - Hampton Court Palace is widely recognised for having some of the most spectacular in England, 60 acres of formal gardens and 750 acres of royal parkland.

Lunch at Windsor

After an exclusive panoramic drive through scenic English countryside, your early afternoon begins with an optional traditional Fish and Chips lunch in the heart of historic Windsor. London Magical Tours guests exclusively benefit from a fast track food service - the food is freshly prepared in time for our group's arrival to help make the most of the day.

Windsor Castle

Following on from lunch, guests are given the option to go on an escorted visit to Windsor Castle, the Queen's favourite countryside residence. Please note that guests who decline this option will instead be given free time to shop at Windsor town before meeting back with the group.

A true fairy tale castle situated on a hill above the River Thames, Windsor Castle holds within its great walls almost 1000 years of history. Your professional guide will escort you around the largest inhabited Castle in the world, sharing with you the delights of the iconic Round Tower, the garden moat and the lower and upper wards.

Guests will be given time to admire Queen Mary's Dolls House, a perfect miniature palace built on a scale of 1 to 12 (including fully operating electrics and running water!) before paying a visit to the majestic State Apartments with their huge array of treasures from across the world to see the locations used to welcome visiting Heads of State, including the famous St George's Hall, home of the Order of the Garter.
