Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle
Very Popular Tour
August 29, 2016
We did Windsor Castle in the morning and got to Buckingham Palace in the mid-afternoon of our last full day in London. The scene at Victoria Coach Station in the morning (~8 AM) was rather chaotic (they needed someone to Take Charge!), but, once on the coach, things settled down. The entry line at Windsor Castle was long, as you might expect, but we achieved entry fairly quickly and then headed straight for the State Apartments, which were exquisite. Barely enough time to give them justice, then visited St. George's Chapel, and on to Buckingham Palace (HM was up in Scotland) where we (Ann, especially) enjoyed the wardrobe displays from through the Queen's entire reign. Very impressive!
