Private guided walking tours of Windsor at night are an unusual and entertaining experience suitable for all.
After dark, once the castle gates have been shut and the hordes have headed home, Windsor’s character changes. A hush descends over the old cobbled streets, the castle walls seem a little higher, the ancient stones appear darker and more brooding, and in the of stillness of dusk and the calm quiet of the evening, history itself seems to whisper that little bit louder.
Starting in the early evening we invite you to walk in the footsteps of Kings and Queens, discover “Shakespeare’s little town house”, and hear some of the more unusual tales of bygone Windsor.
After an hour or so exploring the streets, our guide will escort you to a great pub or one of the excellent restaurants in Windsor where you can enjoy the culture and hospitality of the town at your leisure.
A great choice for corporate entertainment or visitors on a tight schedule, Chris will take parties of any size up to 30 people for an hour long tour of Windsor town. Since this is a private tour, Chris can be very flexible to suit your preferences.

Our guide wil meet you again after you have finished your meal and accompany you on the short walk to the Windsor and Eton Thames riverside. Crossing the river takes you directly into Eton and a short walk to Eton College. If you have time we recommend taking an official guided tour of Eton College.

A recent testimonial…
“Dear Chris, A quick email to say thank you for your hospitality last night, despite the ‘chilling’ arctic winds the team had a great time and loved walking around, and huddling in Windsor. It’s an evening they will talk about for a long time. Thank you for your enthusiasm and passion.”
