Visit Windsor Castle
On our doorstep and the main reason visitors come to Windsor from all over the world, Windsor Castle is a truly awe-inspiring destination for anyone who is interested in history, architecture, and of course the monarchy. The Castle dominates the town and can be seen from far and wide. The magnificent structure was built in the 11th century by William the Conqueror and is both the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world, having been the official home of British royalty for nearly 1000 years. Visitors can book tickets using the link below. It is recommended that you give yourself at least 2½ hours to visit the State Apartments, Queen Mary’s Dolls House and to see the grounds in all their glory.
River Boat Trips
Windsor is set on the banks of the River Thames - a 215 mile long river that runs all the way through Southern England, including London and Windsor and out to the North Sea. The meandering river is a beautiful way to explore and experience the sights of Windsor in a comfortable boat! Book a boat trip provided by the French Brothers who offer either 40 minute or 2 hour river cruises. You will get fantastic views of Windsor Castle along with Windsor Racecourse, Boveney Lock, Eton College and The Brocas.
A great way to explore our fabulous town.
Alternatively, in better weather you can become the skipper of your own vessel by booking one of John Logie's motorboats - a fun way to enjoy the river for smaller groups.
Theatre Royal Windsor
Opened in 1910, this fabulous Edwardian theatre is the second such theatre on this site, as the original theatre burnt down in 1908. The present Grade II listed building is magnificent and provides the best in live entertainment all year round, including the fabulous pantomime every year from November-January, and recent performances from esteemed actors such as Martin Shaw and Sir Ian McKellen.
