Travel to Windsor Castle

Windsor is famous for its royal connections and is steeped in the pageantry and history of the Royal Family. Less than 30 miles west of London it's surrounded by the delightful countryside of Royal Berkshire and makes a great day trip from the capital. You'll discover a lively town in a glorious riverside location with great shopping, restaurants and Windsor Castle - one of the Queen's official royal residences and the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world.

Culture & heritage

Windsor's history stretches back thousands of years, but it's Windsor Castle, used as a fortress and home for over 900 years, that has made the biggest mark on the town. Built by William the Conqueror, it's expanded over the centuries to become a lavish royal residence and Windsor's top attraction.

Windsor Castle Attractions

If you love history and royal tradition, Windsor is the place to head. As well as the enormous Castle, there's historic Eton College, where Princes William and Harry went to school, and Frogmore House - the elegant property where Queen Victoria and her husband Prince Albert are buried.

Shopping

Windsor has a great variety of shops in its historic heart. High street shops, designer labels, antiques shops and department stores sit alongside quaint, specialist and souvenir shops. The Windsor Royal Station shopping centre, within a former Victorian station, is a grand setting for a variety of upmarket stores.

Sport

Windsor has a long sporting history with horse racing, polo at the Guard's Club and rowing on the River Thames all featuring prominently in the sporting calendar. The biggest sporting event comes in June with Royal Ascot, probably the most famous and glamorous race meeting in the world.

Food & drink

Windsor has a wide variety of restaurants, pubs and cafes to suit every palate. For two of the best restaurants in Britain head to Bray, a pretty parish just outside Windsor. It is home to Michel Roux's Waterside Inn and Heston Blumenthal's Fat Duck - both have 3 Michelin stars and serve the finest British produce.
