Description

Swap London life for the picturesque town of Windsor for the day. Even though it’s only a short train ride away, exploring this green, leafy spot can make you feel like you’re a world away from London’s busy streets. Visit Windsor Castle, the Riverfront, and the Old Town, or maybe head out to Runnymede, the famous meadow where King John sealed the Magna Carta (an ancient political document). You could also visit Windsor Great Park or even Legoland, a big hit if you're with the kids. A day spent in Windsor with a like-minded local will be a breath of fresh air! Discover another side of England’s beauty and history as you explore with your local, and maybe even indulge in a traditional meal in a historic pub by the riverside.

What you'll do

Wander through the heart of Windsor and explore Windsor Castle with a Local Host who knows and loves the history of this significant spot. Windsor Castle has been home to British Kings and Queens for almost 1,000 years, and it is still the official residence of Her Majesty The Queen. Your host will tell you about the origins of the castle and share with you the rich history it has to offer.

After visiting the Castle, head down through the Old Town of Windsor to pick up a souvenir and enjoy the medieval architecture of the buildings. Travel down to the Riverfront and take a short break in Alexander Gardens or find a spot for lunch that your local recommends. 

Visit Runnymede Pleasure Grounds- the famous meadow where King John sealed the Magna Carta in 1215 - and sit by the beautiful River Thames which runs through it. Or if you prefer, head over to Windsor Great Park which has a diverse offering of activities. Here you could visit the Red Deer in their enclosure, the Guards Polo Club, Legoland (which has over 50 interactive rides), or visit the picturesque Virginia Water Park and lake, it’s your choice! 

Lastly, have dinner at a tranquil pub by the riverside which your Local recommends, and indulge in a plate of traditional English cuisine, like Fish and Chips.
