Itinerary: select any 2 from our 6 options below to create your full day tour:

Option 1: ARUNDEL CASTLE (half-day)

Ancestral home of the Dukes of Norfolk for over 800 years, few castles can match the setting and history of Arundel. First built before the Norman invasion of 1066, it later became the first 'queen’s castle' in the country. A treasure house of paintings, furniture, books and tapestries. Highlights include the Baron’s Hall, the Grand Staircase and the Great Dining Room. On the way to Arundel pass through nearby delightful Sussex village of Amberley, with its picturesque thatched cottages and parish church.
● Apr-Oct: Tue-Sun; Aug: daily.
● Admission payable on entry.
● Your guide will conduct the tour.

Option 2: CHICHESTER CATHEDRAL (half-day)
Chichester is a city on the south coast of England containing the only medieval cathedral in the country with a detached bell tower. The spire dominates the picturesque surroundings. Inside, Romanesque meets Gothic in the ornate architecture. Hear how this church became a centre for reconciliation between Britain and Germany after World War Two, and seek out the burial place of the great composer Gustav Holst, most famous for his Planets suite.
● Usually open daily.
● Admission payable on entry.
● Your guide will conduct the tour.

Option 3: HAMPTON COURT (half-day)
Hampton Court is a national treasure. It’s actually two palaces in one, covering both the Tudor and Stuart royal dynasties (Henry VIII actually stole it!). Highlights include the authentic Tudor kitchens, Great Hall, and Chapel Royal. There’s also an important art collection, an ancient working tennis court, and the magnificent gardens featuring the world’s oldest maze for you to get lost in! 500 years of royal history comes alive here.
● Usually open daily.
● Admission payable on entry.
● Your guide will conduct the tour.

Option 4: PETWORTH HOUSE (half-day)
Petworth has been an aristocratic palace and connoisseur’s dreamhouse since the 12th century. It contains the National Trust's finest art collection, yet it is a work of art in itself, beautifully set in a 'Capability' Brown landscape. In fact, the artist Turner painted it many times. Simply superb example of English architecture and grounds.
● Mar-Nov: Sat-Wed.
● Admission payable on entry.
● Your guide will conduct the tour.

Option 5: POLESDEN LACEY (half-day)
Just beyond the outer reaches of London lies the historic Polesden Lacey estate in the county of Surrey. But how to describe it in a nutshell? Royalty, society, politics, power, influence, intrigue, scandal, money, snobbery, parties, beer, architecture, interior design, rare treasures, fine art, tapestries, porcelain, jewellery, gardens, excess, luxury, quality… that’s Poleden Lacey!
● Mar-Oct: Wed-Sun; Nov-Feb: Sat + Sun.
● Admission payable on entry.
● Your guide will conduct the tour.

Option 6: RHS WISLEY GARDENS (half-day)
10 miles from Central London lies Wisley, Britain's best loved garden run by the Royal Horticultural Society. It’s a working garden with a diverse and unique collection. It is said ‘If it can grow at Wisley it can grow anywhere.’ Features include the Alpine Meadow, Arboretum, Bamboo Walk, Fruit Field, Model Gardens, Pinetum, Rock Garden, Rose Garden, Vegetable Garden, Vineyard and Tropical Glasshouse. If you love flowers and plants you cannot miss it.
● Usually open daily.
● Admission payable on entry.
● Your guide will conduct the tour.

PRACTICAL TOUR INFO:

Important note: 'Private tour' means a privately chartered guided tour. It does not entail exclusive private access. We do not offer tours to individuals wishing to join a larger group (for this you require a scheduled coach tour operator).

Timings: A recommended start time ensures the tour runs to schedule. The duration of this tour is timed from pick-up to drop-off and usually includes built-in stops for photo opportunities, facilities, and a one-hour lunch break.

Pick-up/drop-off: You can be picked-up for your tour anywhere in the central London area, whether at your hotel, place of residence, or venue of your request. The same applies as a dropping-off point after the tour. Tours from London may use fastest routes.

Vehicle: Our typical vehicle is a luxury people carrier. Usually a high-spec 7-passenger Mercedes, with leather seats, armrests, headrests, air-conditioning, tinted windows, front and rear electric sunroof, sliding passenger doors and luggage space.

Tour: The main tour is conducted personally by the guide, providing knowledgeable commentary, and assisting with practical issues. Sections of the tour may be conducted by in-house docents or using audio devices, but your guide may still escort you.

Lunch: An appropriate restaurant, traditional pub, or sandwich stop can be arranged for lunch (note: tour price does not include food or refreshments). Alternatively, you may want to bring a pre-packed lunch. The guide may take a rest during this period.
