There are so many locations in and around London reflecting the rich history of the UK and Windsor Castle is one of the best. Enjoy a day out at Windsor in comfort and style with Chauffeur One, a leading provider of Chauffeur services in London. We can arrange a tailor-made itinerary to suit you.
Windsor Castle is located in Windsor, Berkshire, a town less than an hour by car from London using the M4 motorway. As such, Windsor is ideal for a day-trip and the castle, the original of which was built in the 11th century, is the centrepiece of the area. Windsor Castle is the preferred weekend residence of Queen Elizabeth II but it is also a major tourist attraction. Windsor Castle is notable in particular for its architecture. The castle’s State Apartments are of architectural significance as well as being lavish. The apartments have been updated through the years yet continue to reflect the tastes in particular of two monarchs, Charles II and George IV. Charles II, who ruled from 1660 to 1685, set out to rival the architectural splendour of Versailles in France under his cousin, Louis XIV. George IV, who ruled from 1820 to 1830, added a new grand entrance and staircase to the apartments as well as the Waterloo Chamber, to mark the defeat of Napoleon Bonaparte at the eponymous battle in 1815. Today, the State Apartments house many fine works from the Royal Collection, including paintings by such famous artists as Rembrandt and Rubens. St George’s Chapel, built in the 15th century, uses a design associated with the English Perpendicular Gothic style and is well worth seeing.
Aside from the Castle, Windsor has a number of other sights of interest for visitors. Having a car and chauffeur means you can tour the area at your leisure, without the need to think about where you might park or what time you have to catch a train or bus. You can also take a boat trip along the River Thames. In winter time, Alexandra Gardens has a temporary ice rink in its grounds. There is also Legoland Windsor, which is the only Legoland park located in the UK and the world’s largest in terms of area. Legoland is a great destination for young and old alike and would make for an ideal family day out. At Chauffeur One, we cater for larger groups, including families, with multi-seat vehicles that retain all the comfort and style of our executive cars.
