We can’t wait to welcome Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on the 19th May to our historic town for the celebration of their marriage. All eyes will be on the beautiful Windsor Castle where the couple plan to tie the knot; however we want to show off what else Windsor has to offer. If you’re planning on visiting Windsor, then here are our recommended destinations that should not go to miss.
With seats already booked up on train lines to the town, why not travel in true British fashion and glide down the River Thames on a boat trip. Many boat tours will be sailing through Windsor, right past the front of Windsor Castle. So if you are lucky enough, you can catch a glimpse of the action away from all the other visitors on land.
If you are visiting Windsor with your children, treat them to an experience at LEGOLAND®. It is every child’s dream to become a knight, an explorer, a test driver or a pilot and enter a fascinating world of adventure. LEGOLAND® offers over 55 rides and attractions that kids and grownups can enjoy. With the resort only a ten minute drive away, Sir Christopher Wren Hotel is the perfect base to stay before or after you go and play. Take advantage of our LEGOLAND® MINI BREAK package, including 2-day entry to LEGOLAND®, overnight accommodation, free full English breakfast and much more.
It comes without thought that Windsor Castle will be closed to the public on Saturday 18th May but this does not mean you can’t enjoy the wonderful views of the Castle’s architecture. The original castle was built in the 11th century after the Norman invasion of England by William the Conqueror. Since the time of Henry I, it has been used by the reigning monarch and the longest-occupied palace in Europe.
Windsor Great Park is the perfect spot to relax and take in the fresh spring air. With over 4,800 acres for you to explore, and a royal history spanning over 1,000 years, you will surely encounter historical monuments, ancient forests and stunning horticultural displays to get you in the mood for the royal celebrations.
To get you into the royal spirit during the exciting events around Windsor, why not indulge in the traditional English custom of Afternoon Tea at Sir Christopher Wren. You can enjoy your tea in the sunny Brasserie, or we can serve you out on the terrace watching boats and swans sail down the river. To book a table, please click here.
