Royal Windsor

It's the Queen's favourite weekend getaway.

It's the place to see the world's
oldest and largest occupied castle.

It's just a 40 min drive from London.

It's as picturesque as it gets.

It's {royal} Windsor.

Things to See in Windsor

The Castle: home of kings for almost 1000 years,
Windsor castle was built by William the Conqueror.
It looks like being drawn from a fairytale
and is sure to amaze kids and adults alike.

The Long Walk: stretching for a good 2.64 miles
from the Castle to the statue of King George II,
the Long Walk is a must-walk in Windsor.

The Crooked House: the English version of the Tower of Pisa.
Built in 1592, it owes its famous tilt
to the use of unseasoned timber.
It now houses a traditional tea shop.

Windsor with Kids

There are plenty of activities in Windsor for children.

Walk along the river Thames and feed the swans,
rent a boat and get spectacular views of the castle,
have fun at Alexandra Gardens' fun fair,
enjoy some shopping and a nice meal
at the beautiful shopping centre
located in a Victorian Railway Station.

One thing is certain: kids won't get bored.

Where to Stay in Windsor 

With Kids: a 10min drive from Windsor, 
set in a magnificent park, 
Beaumont Estate is a great hotel 
to relax & spend a peaceful weekend. 
They have an indoor pool, a playground 
and 40 acre of space for kids to enjoy. 

Sans Kids: located right on the river Thames, 
Sir Christopher Wren is perfect for a romantic getaway. 
You can spend a day at the spa, 
dine on the summer terrace 
and enjoy the lovely views of the river.
