Stop At: Windsor Castle, Castle Hill, Windsor SL4 1PD England
Windsor Castle is the largest inhabited castle in the world and the oldest in continuous occupation. Together with Buckingham Palace in London and Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh, it is one of the principal official residences of the British monarch. Windsor Castle is located in the Berkshire town of Windsor, in the Thames Valley to the west of London. Queen Elizabeth II spends many weekends of the year at Windsor Castle, using it for both state and private entertaining. Windsor Castle dates back to the time of William the Conqueror. Most of the kings and queens of England have had a direct influence on the construction and evolution of Windsor Castle, which has been their garrison, fortress, home, official palace, and sometimes prison. The castle's history and that of the British monarchy are inextricably linked. Chronologically the history of the castle can be traced through the reigns of the monarchs who have occupied it.

Stop At: Stonehenge, Amesbury SP4 7DE England
Our next stop is Stonehenge which stands alone in the vast, empty section of the Salisbury Valley as the world's most famous prehistoric and now a World Heritage Site. Its origins date back almost 5,000 years and since then it has been home to pagan religions and spiritual worship. What was the purpose of this huge collection of stones? Was it a Moon Sighting Observatory, a Sun Temple, or a complex cemetery? Who were those people that took these 4 ton rocks and carved them? Stonehenge still functions as a celestial calendar. Even in modern times the Sun rises on the longest day of the year in just the right spot and it retains its powerful sense of wonder over those who gather. We will learn all the answers and marvel at this remarkable and mysterious feat of ancient design and engineering here in today.
