Fancy a night in Royal Windsor with the chance to look around one of the Queen’s official residences? Want to see how the Royal Family live and learn more about this prestigious palace? Short break specialist Superbreak (www.superbreak.com) is offering exclusive 'behind-the-ropes’, after-hours tours which offer the chance to enjoy areas once the doors have closed to visitors for the day. Available on selected Saturdays in January, February and March 2010 these breaks make excellent gifts and with lots to see and do, Windsor is a perfect choice for a night away.
The oldest and largest occupied castle in the world, Windsor’s story embodies 1,000 years of royal history. This exclusive private evening tour in the company of a Royal Household guide offers the chance to view the magnificent State Rooms where the display of paintings from the Royal Collection rivals that of any art gallery. Today The Queen spends most of her private weekends at the Castle, which is also used regularly for ceremonial and State occasions. The tour takes place on Saturday between 5.30 and 8pm and after the tour guests can enjoy a glass of champagne.
In addition to the Castle, Windsor has lots to offer. The open top City Sightseeing bus is a great way to learn more about the Royal Borough or if you are lucky, you may even get to see the changing of the guard (alternate days Monday-Saturday).
