Sir Christopher Wren Passes Go!

There are some milestones we have passed at Sir Christopher Wren but there is no milestone better than passing go! After months of waiting, the Royal Windsor Monopoly board has now been released and we are so proud to be a part of such a well-loved household game.

On Friday 5th October 2018, Sir Christopher Wren attended the launch party of the Royal Windsor Monopoly board. It was a pleasure to be amongst the variety of Windsor’s landmarks and destinations that make Royal Windsor the great town it is today. Throughout 2018, Windsor has welcomed many well-known visitors such as David and Victoria Beckham, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Charlotte Riley and Tom Hardy and Queen Victoria herself, but nothing excited us more when we heard horses trotting from outside and saw the biggest top hat peering over the carriage. It was Rich Uncle Pennybags, well known as Mr. Monopoly.


Rich Uncle Pennybags has a busy day ahead of him as he is set to visit some locations from the board. After a long day of activities, it was only right to treat Mr Monopoly to a royal stay at Sir Christopher Wren Hotel. The hotel is the perfect base after a jam packed day of exploring Windsor, to sit back and relax in the heart of the beautiful historic town.



After checking into the hotel, Mr Monopoly indulged into a delicious Traditional Afternoon Tea in The Brasserie. Our Traditional English Afternoon Tea is an ideal pick-me-up after visiting Windsor Castle or Eton College or walking on the Thames Trail. You can enjoy your tea by a roaring fire in the Drawing Room or in the sunny Brasserie. On warm days, we can serve you out on the terrace watching boats sail down the river.

He of course had some time to play a game of Monopoly with his tea too.


After hours of fun, Mr Monopoly finally completed his game of Monopoly and won! He splashed his winnings on the bed and made himself at home in one of our bathrobes. We thought it was important for Mr Monopoly to enjoy a luxurious night at Sir Christopher Wren Hotel, so we assigned him with a Feature room.  Sir Christopher Wren Hotel & Spa is bursting with history and charm, and some of our bedrooms have features that make them extra special. All our feature rooms have something that makes them unique, whether it’s a classic fireplace, a private balcony, stunning oak-panelled walls, or a spectacular view of Windsor Castle. All these rooms include high-tech amenities, such as Nespresso coffee machines and iPod docking stations.


If you are in need of a getaway this autumn, then we recommend following in Mr Monopoly’s footsteps and visiting Royal Windsor. In the upcoming months, Windsor is full of events that everyone can enjoy such as the second Royal Wedding, Autumn Adventures at Cliveden and Windsor Duck Tours Halloween Events.

We recommend heading to Windsor for the ‘A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’ exhibition featuring the wedding outfits worn by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on their wedding day. Sir Christopher Wren Hotel is just a stone’s throw away from Windsor Castle, making it the perfect base to experience one of Great Britain’s most famous landmarks and the Royal Wedding Exhibition. With our Royal Wedding Castle Package, you can attend the exhibition, have a luxurious overnight stay at Sir Christopher Wren, enjoy a full English breakfast and much more.
