Shopping in Windsor & Maidenhead

Is shopping your passion?

Then you’ve come to the right place!

Retail therapy is one of the top reasons to come to the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and there are plenty of cafes and restaurants for ‘fuel stops’ and people watching!

Shopping in Windsor and Maidenhead really is something else!

Easy to get to, easy to get round!

Arriving by train?

Both of Windsor and Eton’s railway stations are centrally located for the town’s shopping areas, so too is Maidenhead railway station. 

Coming by car?

Head for a long-stay car park where a day’s parking is more economical.

Elegant and distinctly well-heeled, there is a wealth of good shopping opportunities, whether you’re after original handmade items, vintage gems, quality high-street goods or lush plants for your house or garden.

And the compact town centres mean you can easily explore on foot. 

Windsor & Eton

At the heart of shopping in Windsor and Eton is Windsor Royal Shopping Centre, a mostly covered area that occupies the site of an 1850s railway station: you can still see Queen Victoria’s royal waiting room.

Here you can shop for upmarket brands such as Hobbs, Aquascutum and Jaeger in a continental café setting, and you might also be intrigued by Artique, an art gallery with a consultancy service.

From Windsor Royal Shopping, steps lead down to Windsor Yards, a pedestrian-friendly collection of good high-street stores including Daniels of Windsor department store, independent family-run jewellers Anthony Paul Design Goldsmiths, Zara and Cotswold Outdoor.

Peascod Street, the car-free road that runs down the hill directly opposite Windsor Castle, has more high-quality high street brands including Superdry and Karen Millen.

You might want to pop into vintage store Really Me at no 44 which sells clothing, accessories, furniture, bric-a-brac, books and vinyl and also helps fund Thames Hospice.

Lower Peascod Street and St Leonard’s Road are where Windsorians love to shop.

Here you’ll find a part of town where cosy cafes meet traditional crafts and fine foods, with a bit of fashion thrown in for good measure.

Shops in Windsor along the High Street, Thames Street and the 17th-century Windsor Guildhall enjoy a scenic location beneath the Castle, and specialist shops entice visitors with local jewellery and woollens, as well as royal regalia in the form of souvenirs.


Stroll from here across the bridge over the Thames and you’ll come to Eton High Street, leading towards the famous Eton College – you can’t miss the pupils in their chalk-stripe trousers, tailcoats and wing-collared shirts.

Amongst the tailors, discover quintessential gentlemen's outfitters New & Lingwood, founded in 1865 to cater for the sartorial needs of Eton College pupils and still occupying the same site on Eton High Street all these years later!

Aside from the school, Eton is renowned for its art and antique shops and appealing small family businesses, including jewellers, bookshops and gift shops.

On the mile-long strip of shops between the Thames and Eton College you can browse for original paintings, prints and photography, haute couture and leather goods.

There are plenty of traditional pubs and eating places to stop and refuel too.

Out Of Town

Probably the most beautiful shop in the area though is The Savill Building, which features a dramatic undulating ceiling and a verdant location in the Savill Garden in Windsor Great Park.

The shop proudly sources most of  its products – from gourmet food to kids’ games – from across the UK, and they favour fairtrade, organic and charitable suppliers.

Keen gardeners will be drawn to the outdoor plant area with plants lovingly nurtured in the Savill Garden itself, and you’ll find gifts, books and maps, bespoke stationery and Windsor Great Park preserves.

Round off a trip with tea and a homemade cake in the Savill Garden Restaurant.


Neighbouring Maidenhead is dependable for high street shopping: the Nicholsons Centre has everything under one roof, plus occasional themed events and kids entertainment.

Neighbouring Villages

At the other end of the scale, the picture-postcard villages of Ascot, Cookham, Sunninghill and Sunningdale offer fine boutiques, arts and crafts stores, florists and wine merchants.

Farmers' Markets

And if you’re on the foodie trail, head to Windsor Farmers' Market on St Leonard’s Road (first Saturday of the month).

You can browse stalls selling seasonal fruit and veg, as well as meat, fish, game and specialist breads and cakes.

Maidenhead Farmers' Market pops up on the second Sunday of the month in Grove Road car park and Ascot Farmers' Market takes place on the third Sunday of the month in Ascot Racecourse's car park 3.
