Afternoon

Enjoy a boat trip on the River Thames with French Brothers. Their 40-minute trip gives you great views of the Castle. Feed the swans on the river afterwards. Explore the area further and enjoy an open top bus ride around Windsor, Datchet and Eton with Golden Tours. Their circular trip lasts 45 minutes.
