Windsor and Eton

The towns around the castle

Explore these famously historical twin towns with a highly qualified guide

Windsor and Eton, linked by a bridge across the River Thames, are an ideal pair of towns for exploration on foot.

A 90 minute Windsor tour will give you time to see The Long Walk, Wren’s Guildhall, Queen Victoria and the castle exterior.

Alternatively we can see the River Thames, Eton and the exterior of Eton College in a 90 minute tour.

Both tours can be combined for a half day walk.

If you have a full day available, combine this with a boat trip, a visit to Windsor Castle, or an excursion to Runnymede, famous for the sealing of Magna Carta.

Get to know Windsor, Eton and the people who have lived here

Windsor Castle dominates views all around Eton, Windsor and the River Thames.  But there is much more to the area than the castle.

Our 90 minute tours of Windsor OR Eton explore the parts of these towns that many visitors never get to see.  Hear many stories about those towns and their inhabitants over the years.

Our guides are qualified to guide within the precincts of Windsor Castle, so this is an ideal add-on for a full day.  Alternatively, let us show you the Bar Association Memorial, the JFK Memorial and Magna Carta connections at Runnymede.

And in the autumn evenings, why not find out about the spooky goings-on with a Windsor ghost tour?
