Evening Tours of Windsor
As the last tourist bus heads off for the day, a hush descends over the old cobbled streets of Windsor. In the evening light the ancient stones of the castle walls take on a honeyed hue, and in the of stillness of dusk and the calm quiet of the evening, history itself seems to whisper that little bit louder.
We invite you to walk with us in the footsteps of Kings and Queens. On an evening tour of Windsor you will discover Shakespeare’s favourite inn, and hear some of the more unusual tales of bygone Windsor. See where Charles II and his lover Nell Gwynn once walked, explore the streets that Sir Christopher Wren knew as a boy. Pass the shop where the young H.G. Wells worked. Our guide will lead you through British history and will end by taking you to a great pub or restaurant where you can enjoy an evening of culture and Windsor hospitality at your leisure.
This tour is a great choice for corporate entertainment. At the end of a day of meetings, delegates will welcome the gentle exercise and fascinating entertainment that a guided tour can bring.
Our guide can take tour parties large or small (up to 35 people) for an hour long tour of historic Windsor town. This will be your private tour so we can be very flexible to suit your arrangements.
Windsor Evening Tour Itinerary
We usually start our evening tours at the riverbank with stories of the founding of the town and the neighbouring village of Eton with its famous college. Then a stroll past Sir Christopher Wren’s townhouse, and up past the Castle walls with stories of Kings and Queens, murders, crime, and illegal activities. Then we walk the old cobbled streets, discover Shakespeare’s little townhouse, see where King Charles conducted his extramarital affairs and hear some of the more unusual tales of bygone Windsor. Then round to the long walk for tales of ghosts, bombs and evil Canadians (yes, Windsor has some really odd history).
Thereafter to the Guildhall where Pince Charles married Camilla. in addition to all that are tales of famous residents (from H.G. Wells to Natalie Imbruglia and many more)
This is just an outline, but our guide is great at adjusting the content according to the interests of the group.
“Our international group loved the information you shared as we wandered around Windsor. The level of detail was perfect, and the information shared sparked some interesting conversations over dinner! Thanks so much Chris!”
