5. Can I take a day trip from Windsor to London?
Windsor is only a short bus or train journey away to Central London. The Green Line bus (702/701) takes around an hour to get to London from Windsor and stops at Hammersmith, Hyde Park, South Kensington, Kensington High Street and Buckingham Palace Road.
You can also get a train from Windsor & Eton Central to London Paddington (with one change at Slough). The whole journey takes around 30-45 minutes depending on connections. Alternatively Windsor & Eton Riverside Station operates a direct service to London Waterloo in just under an hour.
Due to security reasons Windsor Town Centre does not have any left luggage facilities.
The only place where luggage in Windsor can be left is at Windsor Castle. All luggage has to be scanned and be able to fit through ‘airport sized’ security scanners. Whilst you are in the Castle you are able to leave your luggage in the cloakroom free of charge but it must be collected before you exit the Castle.
7. Is Windsor accessible for Wheelchair users?
The nature of the Royal Borough presents some inherent problems common to many historical towns and cities. The Castle is on a steep hill and some of the shops, restaurants and hotels are less accessible to wheelchair users because of their historic nature.
However, Windsor Castle and Legoland® Windsor – two of the UK's top visitor attractions – are fully accessible to wheelchair users and the Royal Borough’s other attractions are working hard towards improving their facilities for a range of disabilities.
