Royal Windsor Castle/Stonehenge
Your professional black cab driver will collect you direct from your hotel and then take you to Windsor Castle where over 900 years of royal history are waiting for you. From William the Conqueror all the way through to our current Queen, successive monarchs have lived here and left their mark on what is now the largest continuously occupied castle in the world. If you go into the Castle with your pre-purchased tickets (which are available online) you can see for yourself the splendour of St. Georges Chapel and the sumptuous state apartments. Windsor itself is a pretty town full of traditional shops and historic pubs. Shakespeare is said to have written his play The Merry Wives of Windsor in one of them! After your visit to Windsor, we drive through Runnymede, where King John signed the Magna Carta in 1215, the foundation of our modern legal framework.
Your cabbie will then drive to the most famous prehistoric monument in the world, and now a world heritage site, Stonehenge stands alone in the vast empty tract of Salisbury plain. Its origins date back nearly 5,000 years and it has been home to pagan religion and spiritual worship, not to be mention public debate ever since. What was this vast collection of stones intended for? Was it observatory of the moon, a temple to the sun, or an elaborate cemetery? Who were the people who carried and carved these 40 ton rocks? Come and unlock the secrets for yourself and marvel at this remarkable ancient Monument. Stonehenge tickets are available online.

The 15th century Castle surrounded by 1000 acres of stunning parkland, pasture and woodlands with the river Lugg running alongside predates Hampton Court Palace by some 80 years. The land was granted by King Henry IV to Sir Rowland Lenthall at the time of his marriage to Margaret Fitzalan, daughter of the Earl of Arundel, a cousin of the King.
Lenthall built the original quadrangular manor house in 1427, 12 years after his Knighthood at the battle of Agincourt (1415). In 1434 he was granted licence to crenellate the house by King Henry VI.
Dickens and Rochester Tour
Join us on a visit to Rochester its just thirty miles from central London or approximately an hour drive by a London Cab. Rochester predates both the Roman and Norman conquests of Britain, retaining many interesting buildings; Rochester was a firm favourite with Dickens, who enjoyed its unique atmosphere.
The diocese of Rochester is the second oldest in the country, being based in the cathedral and was responsible for the founding of the Kings school in 604ad.
The Norman Keep of Rochester Castle is one of the best-preserved examples of its type in both England and France. Situated on the banks of the Medway, it has a dominating vantage point. From here, you can appreciate the importance that the Castle played in the protection of the road to London as travelled from the South East and latterly in the protection of famous Chatham dockyards.
Stroll through the Victorian High Street to visit the Old Guildhall and the Old Corn Exchange, these have been expertly restored to their former glory. Take yourself back to the time of Charles Dickens and take a look at the Eastgate house, now the town’s museum. You can envisage and wander through the pages of the Pickwick papers, Great Expectations or even immerse yourself in the mystery of Edmond Drood.
See Restoration house the home of Miss Havisham, know as Satis house of Great Expectations fame. Rochester High Street comes into its own in December when the whole area transforms itself back in time to the Dickensian era. Its a celebration of Christmas and a tribute to a Dickensian Christmas.
The Dickensian transformation also takes place in June being appropriately themed to reflect summer. In May, there is the historic Jack ‘o’ the Green, with mayday celebrations, traditional Morris dancers and Sweeps. This all makes for an eventful, action packed day immersing and losing yourself in a wealth of history
