Windsor & Eton Tours
Windsor Castle – Let me show you around the world’s oldest and largest inhabited castle built back in 1070 by a Frenchman! The jewel in the crown is St George’s Chapel where 10 kings and 1 queen of England are buried: our late Queen Elizabeth II is buried with her family.
Henley-on-Thames – let me show you around this beautiful riverside town famous for its annual regatta. The town dates back to the 12th century and has a wonderful museum, The River and Rowing Museum.
Marlow-on-Thames: I have strong links with Marlow as my family live here and I just love it. It is a quintessential English town famous for its suspension bridge and Georgian High Street. It has something for everyone – poets and rowers and did you know that there is also a link with Sandhurst in the town?
The town of Windsor is very old and so there are plenty of ghosts in both the town and castle. Come and let me tell you of ghosts in the castle and town, culminating in that most famous of ghosts, Herne the Hunter, said to haunt the Great Park to this day. I take two ghost tours every year for the Windsor Festival.
