Crowned by Windsor Castle and linked by the River Thames, Windsor has a rich mix of history, culture, heritage and fun.
Windsor is a town full of history and charm as you will discover when you visit. The town is dominated by Windsor Castle which is over 900 years old and the largest inhabited castle in the world! There's much to see and do, including visiting the award-winning Savill Garden, taking a guided tour of the town's numerous cobbled streets and Tudor buildings or enjoying a walk along the pretty riverside. If you have little ones you may wish to venture to Legoland Windsor, or take part in a chocolate making workshop at Dr Choc's at the foot of the castle.
If you choose to travel on the morning service, it will be possible to witness the Guards marching through the town to the castle for the Changing of the Guard.The Guards march from Victoria Barracks on Sheet Street, up the High Street and into Windsor Castle. The best places to see them are on Windsor High Street or on the Corn Exchange under Windsor Guildhall between 1045am and 1100am. Please note: the schedule is set by the British Army and is subject to change.
A wonderful way to see Windsor is to board a steamboat at The Windsor Promenade for a steam cruise. Travelling upstream to Boveney lock, the castle will reveal itself on the return journey; the most iconic & famous view of Her Majesty’s favourite home. Trips are planned to coincide with the Royal Windsor Steam Express. Find out more here.
