Windsor Castle & Hampton Court
Windsor Castle has been the fortified home of English monarchs for 1,000 years, towering over the River Thames. Further upstream is Oxford, the scholarly University City that became the Royalist capital to King Charles I during the Civil Wars of the 1640s.
The River Thames connects Hampton Court, a sprawling masterpiece of turrets and gardens, once home to the infamous King Henry VIII, with Windsor Castle, 15 miles upstream, a working royal palace for the past 1,000 years and much loved ‘out of town’ home to the Queen.
One of Henry VIII’s many palaces. Walk through the centuries admiring Tudor and Classical architectural styles and you may sense the ghost of Queen Katharine Howard.
