About

Please note that attraction opening times and prices vary.  Please note Windsor Castle is a working palace and as such is subject to closures.  Please check individual attraction pages for the latest information, call the Royal Windsor Information Centre on +44 01753 743900 or pop in and speak to them in Windsor Royal Station for some helpful advice from people who know the area.  You can pick up a free A4 map too to help you get your bearings.

DAY ONE

MORNING
Discover Windsor Castle with a self-guided audio guide. With so much on offer we suggest that you allow 2½ to 3 hours for your visit. If you wish to re-enter the castle later on in the day you can get a wristband from one of the Castle shops before leaving.

1PM-2PM
Have lunch in one of the many restaurants or pubs in Windsor.

2PM-4PM
Explore the rest of Windsor and Eton with the Original Tour open top bus tour (operates April to October). The tour takes around 45 minutes but as the tour is hop on, hop off you can get off the bus if you spot something you fancy at one of the 11 stops on the way. You could also take a 40-minute boat ride on the River Thames with French Brothers Boats. Or how about a walking tour of Windsor’s Military History led by a former royal guard? Tickets for all tours are available from the Information Centre or can be booked online.

4PM-6PM
Relax at the end of a busy day with afternoon tea and maybe a spot of shopping in Windsor town centre and in the pedestrianised areas of Windsor Yards and Windsor Royal Shopping.

EVENING
Why not extend your trip into the evening with dinner at one of the many town centre restaurants or a production at the Theatre Royal?


DAY TWO

MORNING
Start the day with breakfast in one of Windsor’s many lovely eateries then walk on the Long Walk (access via Park Street) or a a short stroll on the cobbled streets around the Guildhall and on Castle Hill. Watch the Changing of the Guard at 10.45am but remember to confirm march times with the Royal Windsor Information Centre as they vary throughout the year.

12PM-4PM
Discover the beautiful Savill Garden, part of the Windsor Great Park. With over 35 acres of trees and shrubbery, ponds and streams and flowers, the Garden is an incredible visit at any time of year. Grab lunch or afternoon tea (or both!) in The Savill Garden Kitchen in the garden’s visitor centre (the Savill Building) and visit the gift shop before heading back to Windsor.
