Crowned by Windsor Castle and linked by the River Thames, the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead has a rich mix of history, culture, heritage and fun.

With unrivalled royal heritage, things to do, attractions (including Legoland and Dorney Court), events (such as the world-famous Royal Ascot and Royal Windsor Horse Show), superb shopping, food and drink (including Michelin-starred restaurants and traditional pubs) excellent nightlife and a wide range of quality accommodation (including luxury hotels, boutique bed and breakfasts, self-catering properties and campsites) you can see why Windsor and Maidenhead is one of England’s most famous destinations, perfect for a weekend or short break, conference or event, group visit or day trip!

Topping the list is Windsor’s primary claim to fame: Windsor Castle. It is at this striking 11th-century building that our beloved Queen Liz spends part of her year. The palace is said to be the longest-occupied royal residence in the whole of Europe. Stride up the magnificent Long Walk path towards the castle, possibly spotting a red deer on your journey. Head inside to breathe in the luxurious interior, and be sure to gaze at Queen Mary’s exquisite dolls’ house too

For a taste of the high life, choose a classy carriage ride through Windsor’s stunning Great Park. You can practice your royal wave as you glide through the lush trees and immaculate lawns. Horseback riding is also an option if you’d rather gallop your way through the pretty scenery. Next, wander through Savill Gardens, a gorgeous spot in the sprawling acres of Windsor’s Great Park. With colourful flower beds and arching trees, these well-cared-for gardens are a pleasant place to stroll and take in some terrifically English horticulture.

No visit to Windsor would be complete without a glamorous day out at the Ascot Racecourse. The thrill of placing a bet on your favourite horse, clinking champagne glasses and hearing the thunder of hooves lets you feel like a royal for the day. Don your most flamboyant hat, though, or they might not let you in.
