Our guide to holidays in The South of England

Visitors to London should ensure they visit Windsor Castle or Hampton Court Palace, both easily accessible from the city by train or chauffeured vehicle, they give a real sense of the royal history of England. If time allows we would recommend staying for choral evensong at St George's Chapel in Windsor. Families of all ages will love Hampton Court's maze, magic garden and spooky ghost stories!

We can assist with private tours of famous sites such as Highclere Castle or Chartwell with specialist guides. Explore the cathedral city of Canterbury which is brimming with history, heritage and stunning architecture.

Visit Battle, a charming market town which takes its name from the famous Battle of Hastings between William Duke of Normandy and the Saxon King Harold in 1066 - an event so significant it changed the course of English history. Our private driver-guides can help you explore the history of the region from Hever Castle in Kent, the childhood home of Anne Boleyn to England's second oldest Cathedral, founded in 604AD in Rochester.
