About

Let your phone guide you through the streets of Windsor!

The Window Seat Guide is the app that turns your phone into your own private tour guide. Our Windsor Walking Tour is written and narrated by Windsor locals and takes you past the Castle, to the Long Walk and down to the river. It offers a glimpse of local Windsor life as well as Windsor’s beautiful sights.

It’s a circular walk, so although it has a first and last stop, you can actually start it at any point. The beauty of listening to the tour through the app is that you are completely in charge of the scheduling. You can do it when you want, and you can do it in sections too if you’d like. You can stop it to pop into a shop, to have some lunch or even to come back to another day.

Once you’ve bought the tour it remains on your phone and can be listened to again and again. The tour is suitable for anyone who enjoys the kind of sight seeing where you come away knowing a bit more about a place. We generally say suitable from 12 years, but that very much depends on the child.

You’ll also get the Young Explorers Challenge – a free activity sheet that you can download from within the tour – so that younger children can also come along and enjoy the walk. The flexible nature of the app means that you can do as much of the walk as your young explorers enjoy and then do a few more stops another time.

The app uses geo location so it will come on automatically when you reach a designated ‘stop’. It’s almost like having the narrator there with you in person. It has an inbuilt map that shows the route and the different stops but also gives you instructions in the audio of where to go next and when to stop.

You will find The Window Seat Guide app to download for free from the App Store or Google Play. The Windsor Walking Tour can then be purchased from within the app.
