This is going to be a very special outing for you fabulous ladies! We will meet at Windsor Castle main gates at 11am walking up to the Norman Tower where the Governor of the Castle resides Mr Philip Jones. We will then have drinks and canapés, in his private Moat garden, provided by the Tipsy Food Co. A group of fine Michelin Star chefs that are phenomenal caterers and have also created their own brand of gin!

Update! The Governor of Windsor Castle,  Lt Gen (Retd) Phil Jones CB CBE DL has invited 2 groups of 20 ladies in each to have a tour of areas that would not ordinarily be open to the public. So, at 11am the tours lasting 30 minutes each will commence. 

At 12.30 please be ready for the annual photo in front of the castle. We will then be escorted down to The Ivy on Windsor high street by Will the Piper. King Charles has has stuck with tradition and has hired the late Queens piper Major Paul Burns to be his personal piper each morning. Apparently they play under the sovereigns window for 15 minutes each day. At the Ivy you will enjoy a 2 course lunch with a glass of wine (red/white/rose) included in the price. Anything else must be paid for by your good selves! Depart by 2.30pm and wonder about Windsor in all your finery or pootle off home! Please feel free to tip any servers/pipers/staff as you wish! They will not be offended :)
