Windsor Castle forms such a large part of the town you can’t miss it! If you’re interested in the history of Britain or love Wills, Kate and Prince George, it’s well worth paying the castle a visit. It’s the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world and an official residence of Queen Elizabeth II.
Explore the elaborately decorated state apartments, which are open to visitors throughout the year.
Whether you prefer a meal and drink in a local pub, or modern cuisine and a glass of wine in a trendy bar, Windsor offers a great choice and is popular with Royal Holloway students. After dark, there’s plenty of late-night bars and clubs offering student nights if you fancy a night on the town.
