A town steeped in history and its royal connections, away from the castle and famous residents Windsor is a fascinating place with good shops, great food, excellent eateries and plenty of green spaces. Within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, it’s the only Royal borough outside of London.
The town is naturally proud of its heritage and it does have traditional values. Local companies pride themselves on good service and old fashioned values that help create a community, small town atmosphere. Sitting on the banks of the Thames, the town offers plenty of places to walk or exercise and charming cafes and restaurants if you’d prefer to ingest rather than burn calories.
There is a packed events calendar and of course plenty of Royal pageantry that is difficult not to enjoy.
Live entertainment can be found at the Theatre Royal, while movie buffs can take in a ‘talkie’ at The Screen cinema. There is a very well-equipped leisure centre with two swimming pools (one for fitness, one for fun), all weather sports pitch, sports hall, gym, cycling studio, fitness classes and even an escape room.
Throughout the year Windsor hosts a number of events including a food festival, fun run, chilli, folk and dance festivals. There is a royal horse show, a dog show, plus Windsor Racecourse (also fun for folks who enjoy a flutter) and Hampton Court Palace both host big names with the likes of Sir Tom Jones, Rick Astley, Jools Holland and Biffy Clyro all lighting up the summer evenings.
Golf and riding fans are also very well catered for with a number of stables in the area and several top-quality golf courses to work on your handicap. You can explore all 4,500 acres of Windsor Great Park or young minds and fingers will find plenty to do at Legoland which is located just outside the town. If your fingers are of a greener persuasion, Kew Gardens are 30 minutes by car.
46 minutes from central London (unless you take the train which will have you at London Paddington in 55 minutes), Windsor offers superb transport links. Heathrow Airport is a 15-minute drive and motorists can be at the M4 and M25 within a few minutes. Slough, Reading, Wokingham, Eton, Bracknell and Epsom are all in easy reach for commuters.
