Private Showround at Windsor Castle, 8th September 2022

8th September

Windsor was the focus of the world in 2018, playing host to two Royal weddings.

This is a unique chance to experience a ‘behind the ropes’ showround of the castle during a private visit to the State Apartments at Windsor Castle with an expert guide, after the castle has closed to the public.

We will take you on a journey through 1,000 years of royal history starting when the building is closed to the public. You discover how William the Conqueror’s wooden castle was rebuilt by Edward III as a stone fortress with magnificent apartments, how Charles II set out to rival the Versailles of his cousin Louis XIV, while George IV filled the rooms with outstanding works of art and gave the Castle its famous skyline.

Your showround will end with a glass of Champagne before we take you back to your hotel.

Situated just five minutes walk from Windsor Castle is your base for the event at the Sir Christopher Wren Hotel. It has the perfect location overlooking the river in this historic town.

The 4-star hotel comprises several characterful buildings clustered around a historic cobbled street.  The Wren Club offers a gym, spa treatments, outdoor jacuzzi and sauna.

You will stay in Executive Double rooms with breakfast included.

After dinner retires to the bar or enjoy a peaceful night’s rest in your classic room.
