Where are we?
Just a few minutes’ walk from the Lodge, Windsor town centre nestles in the shadow of the magnificent castle, with the Long Walk leading off into the lush scenery of the Great Park. Across the river, Eton, seat of learning for the great and the good, is chock-full of quaint distractions.
But both towns’ modern attractions are as legend as their history. High street stores, designer boutiques, antiques and art, culture and cuisine – it’s no coincidence that thousands of tourists visit the Borough every year. At night, Windsor town centre positively hums with activity, with the theatre, cosmopolitan bars, street cafés and nightclubs all reverberating with laughter and music.
Across the Park, Royal Ascot is worth a flutter, and you might catch a chukka at Guards Polo Club. Beyond that, there are many delightful towns and villages to explore in the surrounding area: Marlow, Cookham and Henley-on-Thames to mention but a few. And hop on a train and you could be in Richmond-upon-Thames in half an hour, or in the centre of London not long after.
