For anyone short of time, this is an easy way to get a feel for the English countryside. The drive follows the River Thames, which flows east from the Cotswold Hills. Charming little villages include Eton, Bray and Cookham. Cliveden provides a wonderful place to have lunch or tea.
The Thames Valley can be combined with Windsor or Oxford for a full day tour.
Windsor Castle is about an hour’s drive west of London, situated beside the River Thames. It is the place where the Queen spends most of her time, so see if her standard is flying. It contains a world-class collection of furniture and paintings, plus St George’s Chapel which is the burial place of many of our famous English kings and queens, including Queen Elizabeth’s parents. View Eton College, on the other side of the River Thames, where Princes William and Harry went to school.
Hampton Court Palace is a massive mansion built in two different centuries - firstly for Cardinal Wolsey in 1500s and secondly for King William III in 1600s. King Henry VIII took the palace from Wolsey and brought some of his wives here. You often find “King Henry” walking around as you explore. King William’s apartments are grander and definitely designed to impress. The gardens are a riot of colour in summer, and there is even a maze where the children can get lost.
