Windsor is the stunning, historic, jewel in the crown of the county of Berkshire. It offers relaxed, atmospheric browsing with shops, restaurants and tearooms scattered throughout the winding, cobbled streets and beautifully restored Old Station.
Ferndale Park is 10 minutes’ drive from Windsor
Windsor benefits from a range of attractive individual gift shops and also a solid high street offering, including French Connection, Fenn Wright Manson, Whistles and Hobbs.
Great shopping and entertainment
The Old Station is now a gorgeous covered arcade with numerous shops and restaurants such as Cafe Rouge.
If you fancy a really historical afternoon treat, you can always visit The Crooked House tearoom which has stood next to the Guildhall for over 400 years and even has a secret passage into the Castle (now closed!)…
Cream teas and much more:
It’s not just the Queen’s fanciest weekend retreat – tours round Windsor Castle, cultural events and even just taking a turn down The Long Walk mean that you too can benefit from this glorious slice of home counties history. And there’s no rush to see everything in one day, because when you purchase a ticket for the castle, you can convert it into an annual pass free of charge.
