Rarely open to the public, Frogmore House has been a favourite royal retreat for over three hundred years. Set in the grounds of Home Park about a mile from Windsor Castle, it is frequently used by the Royal Family for private entertaining and last year was at the centre of Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding celebrations. On Saturday, we enjoy a private evening guided tour of Frogmore, followed on Sunday morning by a guided tour of Clarence House, where Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall undertake official engagements and receive guests from around the world. Many of the rooms and their contents have remained unchanged since the time of Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.
Saturday: Travel to Reading for our afternoon check-in at the hotel before continuing on to Windsor in time for our evening tour of Frogmore House. Return to the hotel for a late buffet dinner.
Sunday: After breakfast we travel into London for our morning visit to Clarence House, there will be some free time in London before our afternoon departure for Derbyshire.
The well recommended Hilton St Anne’s Manor Hotel is located close to Reading with easy access to London and Windsor. The hotel has leisure facilities and a lift serves all floors. The en-suite bedrooms are comfortably furnished and have a TV, hairdryer and tea/coffee making facilities.
Admissions and guided tours of Frogmore and Clarence House are included
