Great Park Windsor

This magnificent park has some outstanding ties with those of royalty and aristocracy, covering an incredible 4,800 acres. A three-mile long walk known as The Long Walk’ takes you from the statue of George III right up to the gates of Windsor Castle along a beautiful tree-lined path. You could take a lovely day trip to see both the castle and the park. As you walk through the parkland, you can see some incredible red deer and they are extremely nice, so don’t be shocked if they are all posing for a shot!

Eton

Why not pop along while you are on your travels across Windsor and take a peek at the beautiful buildings of Eton College. Just across the Thames from the main Windsor town, you’ll find this. Many royals and upper-class boys attended Eton and continued to serve in high-profile government positions, most notably as the nation’s Prime Minister.

 

Windsor Castle

 

The magnificent castle dates back to the 11th century and William the Conqueror originally built it. It is believed to be the world’s largest and the oldest castle still inhabited. It is basically a weekend getaway place for the Queen (or in times of national emergency, it is a castle after all) and the rest of the royal family, and it was the location for Prince Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle in 2018. If you are in the city, a tour of the castle is a must.

 

In Windsor, there are many other places to visit and a trip to the city will see you exploring some of the great scenery and historical sites we have here in the UK.
