“Ride from Shepperton to Windsor Castle” 5 stars Trip Advisor April 2015
“This was a highlight of our (1st) trip to London. Ginette did an amazing job leading us along the River Thames to Windsor Castle. the delicious bacon sandwiches, teas and cakes were a ‘hit’!. It was a wonderful, once-in-a lifetime experience and we’re so glad we did this! It is very do-able for the average person, and it’s a wonderful way to see the country side. We will cherish this experience. This should be on everone’s list of ‘things to do’ while in London”

The first 11th Century Windsor Castle was located 3 miles from the one known today, a timber structure built by William the Conqueror it is noted in the Doomsday book. During King Henry I reign they moved to the new location we know today with a new stone castle built under Edward III in the 14th Century.
