A very warm welcome to the Royal Borough of Windsor.
Looking for a beautiful, unique and historic destination for the perfect short break? Wanting somewhere with a wide range of things to do, great shopping and dining and perfect places to relax and unwind at the end of the day?
Then look no further than the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.
Crowned by stunning Windsor Castle - the largest and oldest inhabited castle in the world and the Queen's official residence - and linked by the beautiful River Thames, the Royal Borough has a rich mix of history, culture, heritage and fun making it one of South East England’s loveliest short break destinations and a 'must see' for everyone's list.
Witness the colourful spectacle and British pageantry of the guards marching through the streets of Windsor for the Changing the Guard ceremony within Windsor Castle's walls - it's a sight not to be missed!
If theme parks are your thing then you will love visiting LEGOLAND situated just outside the town centre. Enjoy a flutter on the horses at world-famous Ascot Racecourse, home of Royal Ascot in June, or Royal Windsor Racecourse, popular for Monday evening meetings and themed race days.
Relax and be inspired by the seasonal interest in beautiful gardens such as the Savill Garden in Windsor Great Park and the National Trust's gardens at Cliveden, near Maidenhead.
There is excellent shopping, fine dining, activities and an exciting programme of events too. So, whether you fancy a romantic short break, a getaway with a group of friends or a family holiday you will be sure to find something to suit.
