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
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
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.
