Windsor Castle

Location: Windsor Castle

Date: Saturday 1st December 2018

Price: Adults £41 - Seniors £39 - Children £32

A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will form part of your visit to Windsor Castle. This special exhibition will feature the wedding outfits worn by the couple at their wedding in May 2018. The Duchess of Sussex’s wedding dress was created by the British designer Clare Waight Keller, Artistic Director at the historic French fashion house Givenchy.  The Duchess chose Ms Waight Keller for her timeless and elegant aesthetic, and for the impeccable tailoring of her creations. The Duchess and Ms Waight Keller worked closely together on the design. The Duke of Sussex’s wedding outfit was the frockcoat uniform of the Household Cavalry (the ‘Blues and Royals’), made by tailors at Dege & Skinner on Savile Row.  As the uniform specially commissioned for the occasion is required for use by His Royal Highness, an identical uniform made for The Duke by Dege & Skinner a few years earlier will be displayed. The Christmas display at Windsor Castle will mark the 20th anniversary of the restoration of the Castle following the fire of November 1992. The State Apartments will be decked with glistening gold decorations inspired by the highly skilled gilding work that was undertaken to restore the Castle’s interiors. The highlight of the display will be the magnificent 20-foot-high Nordmann Fir Christmas tree in St George’s Hall, taken from Windsor Great Park and covered in gold decorations. In the State Dining Room, the table will be laid with silver-gilt pieces from the spectacular Grand Service, commissioned by George IV and still used today by The Queen and her guests at State Banquets

There’s plenty of room to move around and a huge open deck. Your folk will really enjoy the quality and content of the commentary, a mix of historical information and Cockney Watermans humour that brings groups back year after year. We set off at 4-00pm from historic Greenwich and are soon passing The London Docklands a breath taking sight at night, a blaze of colour and light, our own mini Manhattan. It is a wonderful thing to sail beneath a flood lit Tower Bridge, quite stunning! Now we are in the Upper Pool of the Port of London passing the Tower of London, HMS Belfast and approaching London Bridge. The City of London owes its very existence to this majestic river, youll see The Monument and St. Pauls Cathedral and then on to Bankside with Shakespeares Globe Theatre and the massive Tate Modern art gallery housed in the old power station. It just gets better and better as we approach the West End and the warm golden tones of the Palace of Westminster where on many evenings in the run up to Christmas youll see our hard working MPs networking in the Commons bar on the riverside. After 60 minutes cruising we step ashore on Westminster Pier. Our Blue Badge guide will be waiting for you on the pier to walk back to our coach just a few minutes away and begin an entertaining guided tour of the Christmas Lights & Sights in the West End and the City of London.
