Windsor & Oxford
Student / Child:
 Guided day tour from Cambridge 
 'Royalty, Power & Influence'  
 Visit the ancient home of British royalty and one of the world's most prestigious university cities.  
 Windsor is an elegant town located on the River Thames upstream from London. Windsor Castle is an official residence of The Queen, a royal palace used for banquets and ceremonies and the home to St.George's Chapel which houses tombs of ten of the most recent British kings and queens.  

Oxford (the 'other place!') is famous worldwide for its university. Its 'dreaming spires' dominate the city skyline and fabulous college buildings line the city streets below. Like Cambridge, the city and its University have greatly influenced the history of Britain and the country's path of development.
