Bath, Windsor Castle and Avebury stone circle tour

Windsor Castle is the largest inhabited castle in the world and remains Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II weekend home, but is not exclusively used by the Queen on the weekends. The Queen entertains heads of state at Windsor Castle usually during April. The history of Windsor Castle spans 900 years which began as a wooden structure built on a mound 100 ft above the River Thames 22 miles from London, considered one days march for a Norman army. Today Windsor Castle is still a working Royal Palace and also accepts tourist visits. The grand state apartments, St Georges Chapel and Queen Mary's dolls house can be visited.

Enjoy lunch at a select country inn, and visit Avebury stone circle nearby. If Stonehenge was the equivalent of a parish church, then that should make Avebury a vast and majestic cathedral. The Avebury site covers over 28 acres and is one of Europe's most important neolithic monuments.
