It's hard to believe that the imposing Windsor Castle is a working residence, but pay a visit to this lavish fortress and you'll soon discover why it's still the Queen's favorite weekend home. Overlooking the Thames and a stone's throw away from Windsor town, you'll be able to peek inside the luxurious State Apartments and marvel at the priceless artwork by Leonardo da Vinci and Rembrandt that hangs on the walls. You can even see Queen Mary's Dolls' House which is a beautiful model royal home that features electricity, running water and working lifts - every young Queen's dream!
Leave Windsor behind and spy the mysterious Stonehenge as you approach Salisbury Plain. You'll be able to get up close to the 5,000 year old monument during this visit to the stones and learn why its origins have puzzled experts for hundreds of years. Now, you can make up your own mind and solve the mystery yourself!
Your next stop of the day will be Oxford where you can stroll through the quaint cobbled streets and get a real feel for the historic city. You'll continue your history lesson as you wander through the college courtyards and visit the 17th century Bodleian Library which belongs to Oxford University, the oldest university in the English-speaking world.
