Attractions in and around Windsor

The Royal Borough of Windsor is a short break destination in South East England combining 1,000 years of history, contemporary shopping and fine dining with sports, leisure activities and events. Maidenhead, Eton, Bray and the smaller villages of the Royal Borough reflect that special character.

Explore the landscapes, the buildings and fine arts and crafts. And with 1,000 acres of National Trust land and 4,800 acres owned by the Crown Estate there’s plenty of places to enjoy the outdoors.

This is an exciting, fashionable and sophisticated area, rich in things to see and do with interesting walks and tours, boat trips and open top bus tours, historic gardens and world-famous racecourses.
