Chance to visit Windsor, Henley and Marlow with travel club parents are members of. Particularly wanted to see Windsor Castle and renovations since 1992 fire. Good autumn days out, weather kind and coach journey as good as could be considering route down M6/M40. Based in Gerrards Cross, saw fair evidence of wealth in and around areas visited. Getting well used to boat trips! No photos taken in Marlow as a chillier day and didn't hang about (but found a local chocolate maker's shop and had a lovely hot chocolate).

Neil the driver had witty sense of humour and made coach time entertaining.

St George's Chapel and Great Hall were impressive and restoration since 1992 fire amazing.
