Driving and parking in Windsor
Both driving and parking are tricky in the ancient town of Royal Windsor, so you may find it easier to travel by public transport.
If you’re bringing a car, drive to the hotel’s main entrance on Thames Street and drop your luggage with our porters before parking. We have very limited onsite valet parking, there is an overnight charge of £25.00 per car, per night. If you are a blue badge holder, let us know at the time of booking and we will be happy to provide you with a complimentary car parking space. Alternatively we have offsite parking available just a short walk away with an overnight charge of £15.00 per car, per night. Please note it is essential that you call in advance to secure your spot. Spaces in our offsite car park are located within a private section of Windsor & Eton Riverside Station car park. Although our overnight charge is slightly higher than the car park meter price, by reserving one of the hotel’s spaces, you will be guaranteed parking for the duration of your stay. If you haven’t booked a parking space, we suggest trying some of the other local car parks including Windsor & Eton Riverside Train Station, which is a couple of minutes walk away, but is often full during the day Monday to Saturday. Other nearby car parks include Alma Road, River Street, or King Edward VII. For a full list of car parks in Windsor, visit the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead website.
