The royal borough of Windsor was first recorded in 1130, owing its existence to

the siting of William the Conqueror’s castle. Ever since, the town and the castle

have been inextricably linked. For visitors a tour of Windsor Castle is a must-see,

but once you’ve explored The Queen’s favourite residence, there are many other

attractions for groups to enjoy within the Royal Borough of Windsor and

Maidenhead.

A cruise on the River Thames is a wonderful complement to a tour of the

town or Castle, and French Brothers offer a relaxing time afloat. A short

drive across Windsor Great Park you’ll find more tranquillity on a tour of

the beautiful 35-acre Savill Garden. Further along the river lie the hidden

gems of Maidenhead Heritage Centre, where you can fly the Spitfire Simulator

and the Stanley Spencer Gallery, where exhibitions of the great 20th century

British artist’s work change every six months.

For pure entertainment Legoland® Windsor Resort can’t be beaten, or try one

of the new Escape Room experiences for some challenging fun. For evenings,

the Theatre Royal Windsor has a full calendar of plays and an annual

pantomime, or try the historic Old Court Arts Centre  for a private film

screening.

Specialist interests can also be accommodated – did you know there is a tiny

chocolate factory in Windsor, Dr Choc’s, where you can make your own

bon bons? Or a brewery where you can tour and sample their ales?  Plus of

course, there are a range of exciting racing events at Ascot and Windsor

racecourses that are ideal for groups.

Tourers can enjoy guided walks that cross the picturesque pedestrian

bridge from Windsor to Eton and Hop-on Hop-Off Bus Tours, which take

in charming Datchet and stop at the Royal Farm Shop in Old Windsor, or even ‘Duck’ into the Thames for some unique waterside sightseeing. 

 

There is plenty to do in the Windsor area for a few days, so stay over and take your time.

There are accommodation options to cater to all your needs.
