Visiting Slough and Windsor – A City Guide
Slough and Windsor are only a couple of miles apart, but they're very different. Extensively rebuilt during the 20th century, Slough is a modern, culturally diverse community that takes full advantage of its proximity to London. In contrast, neighbouring Windsor, home of Britain's royal family, revels in history, heritage and pageantry.

Slough and Windsor: city layout
Around 20 miles west of London, Slough is less than 30 minutes from the capital by rail. The M4 motorway runs south of Slough, linking the town with London Heathrow Airport (LHR) in about 10–15 minutes. Slough Trading Estate, an extensive industrial and business complex, lies west of the town centre.

The Jubilee River, an artificial channel linked to the River Thames, curves around Slough's southern edge. On the northern bank of the Thames lies historic Eton, best known as the home of élite private school Eton College.

Across the Thames in Windsor, the mighty battlements and iconic Round Tower of riverside Windsor Castle dominate the town's cobbled streets and spacious Windsor Great Park.

Top attractions in Windsor
The attraction that draws most visitors to this part of the world is Windsor Castle, a residence of British royalty for more than 900 years.

Inside, you'll find opulent royal apartments designed for Charles II, a collection of paintings by old masters like Canaletto, Rubens and Rembrandt, and St. George's Chapel, last resting place of 10 monarchs, including Henry VIII and Charles I.

Marvel at the castle from afar at Windsor Great Park, where red and fallow deer roam freely among ancient oaks. Roses and waterlilies make colourful displays in the park's Savill and Valley gardens.

At the southwest corner of Windsor Great Park, set within immaculate landscaped grounds, Frogmore House is a royal retreat filled with antiques.

The serpentine River Thames is an attraction in its own right, offering a range of waterborne activities. If you're feeling energetic, you can rent a boat from Canoe and Kayak Tours to paddle along the gently flowing river. In a lazier mood, board a Thames cruiser for an unforgettable view of the castle.

The concierge recommends…

  • A morning trip to Windsor Castle to watch the Changing of the Guard.
  • A carriage ride around Windsor Great Park with Windsor Carriages or Ascot Carriages.
  • A day at the races at Royal Windsor Racecourse or Ascot Racecourse.

Hotels in Slough and Windsor
Hotels in Slough and Windsor offer guests the best of several worlds. Modern business hotels and no-frills accommodation in central Slough are within easy reach of London and Heathrow Airport (LHR) by road and rail.

The M4 motorway carries you to Heathrow in 10-15 minutes, and also connects with the M25 London orbital motorway. If you prefer to go by rail, central London is around 20 minutes from Slough.

For business travellers, Slough Trading Estate, north-west of the town centre, is the UK headquarters for IT and telecoms giants and other companies. For those planning a sightseeing trip, Windsor Castle is only a couple of miles away.

To stay within walking distance of the castle and other local attractions, the quaint streets of Windsor itself offer good-value, modern hotels.

Eating Out in Slough and Windsor
Thanks to Slough's large South Asian community, you'll find plenty of eateries in the town centre serving spicy dishes from Pakistan, India and Bangladesh, as well as fast-food restaurants serving pizza, pasta and burgers.

These days, you're unlikely to encounter Windsor soup in local restaurants. Once a fixture on English menus – and reputedly a favourite of Queen Victoria – this meaty broth has fallen from fashion.

Instead, you'll find cutting-edge cuisine at Bray, a 20-minute cab ride from Slough. Thanks to a clique of celebrity chefs, this chic riverside village has become a foodie magnet.

There's no shortage of atmospheric inns in Windsor and along either bank of the River Thames, in spots like Eton and Datchet. Look out for ales from the Windsor & Eton Brewery to accompany a hearty Sunday roast or pub favourites like steak and ale pie and fish and chips.

The chef recommends...

  • Eton mess, a delectable dessert made with strawberries, cream and meringue. It was invented in the 19th century at Eton College, the élite boarding school after which it’s named.
  • Snail porridge at the Fat Duck in Bray, where celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal famously introduced British diners to ‘molecular gastronomy’.
  • A picnic with sparkling wine at Royal Windsor Racecourse, Ascot Racecourse or beside the Waterlily Lake in Windsor Great Park.

Shopping in Slough and Windsor
You can shop for all your everyday needs in Slough. If you’re looking for characterful stores or original souvenirs, you’re bound to find something you like in Eton or Windsor.

Browse more than 100 stores – including familiar names like Debenhams, H. Samuel and H&M – at Queensmere Observatory shopping centre in central Slough.

Within the Victorian railway station building opposite Windsor Castle, Windsor Royal Shopping houses upscale brands like Aquascutum, Jaeger and Whistles, as well as a daily arts and crafts market.

You'll find artisan jewellery and ceramics on Lower Peascod Street, Thames Street and High Street, bordering the castle in central Windsor.

Cross the river to Eton, by the arched Windsor Thames Bridge, to discover boutiques selling designer wear and accessories, plus independent shops specialising in antiques, vintage clothing, contemporary art and antiquarian books.

Royal souvenirs from Windsor

  • Within Windsor Castle, three official royal gift shops offer silk scarves and ties, soaps, tea caddies and soft toys. There’s also a collection of china created to commemorate Her Majesty's 90th birthday.
  • The Savill Garden Gift Shop in Windsor Great Park sells fine foods from the Prince of Wales's own Duchy Originals brand, as well as educational toys, gifts and souvenirs.
  • Talents of Windsor boasts a huge range of collectable Moorcroft Pottery, both vintage and contemporary, including pieces created for the limited-edition Royal House of Windsor collection.

Culture & Nightlife in Slough and Windsor
The bright lights of London are temptingly close to Slough and Windsor, so many locals opt to head for the city for a big night out. Plenty of pubs and bars are dotted through central Slough, however, and Windsor offers a wide choice of venues for live music, theatre, cabaret and dancing.

The Wheatsheaf in central Slough entertains a loyal local following with free live music events and pub games like trivia quiz nights, darts and pool. The Henry VI, a popular pub in Eton, presents tribute and cover bands most Friday and Saturday nights.

If you're planning a special occasion with a group of friends, you can hire a party boat, complete with DJ, from French Brothers vessels for an evening disco cruise on the River Thames.

Drama and dancing in Windsor

  • Theatre Royal Windsor presents drama, stand-up comedy and live music from tribute acts like the Chicago Blues Brothers and the official Glenn Miller Orchestra.
  • The Firestation Arts Centre is Windsor's premier venue for contemporary performing arts. Housed in a former fire station, this lively theatre presents drama, dance, comedy and cabaret.
  • Serious clubbers can head for Studio 15, which brings a touch of glitz to Windsor Royal Shopping Centre. DJs spinning R&B, hip-hop and house music draw a young and lively crowd.
  • The Old Ticket Hall hosts live rock, jazz and acoustic performers five nights a week, from Wednesday to Saturday.

Visiting Slough and Windsor with a Family
Family-friendly activities and attractions in and around Slough and Windsor range from royal castles and gardens with play spaces to theme parks with rides, slides and child-friendly eateries.

You can start a day's sightseeing with the Changing of the Guard, when red-coated soldiers march through town to take up their posts at Windsor Castle.

Inside the castle, a highlight for younger visitors is Queen Mary's Dolls' House, a miniature marvel filled with thousands of tiny treasures.

Windsor Castle also offers an activity trail and multimedia tours for families. Each Saturday, youngsters can enjoy history-themed storytelling and dress up in costumes from bygone times.

A carriage ride with Windsor Carriages or Ascot Carriages is a fun and effortless way of showing children the sights.

In summer, Windsor Great Park offers pretty spots for a family picnic, with plenty of green space where kids can romp.

There's more excitement for families at LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort, where you'll find more than 55 rides and attractions, plus scale models of world-famous landmarks like Buckingham Palace and the Eiffel Tower.

Family fun on the Thames

  • Windsor Duck Tours has a fleet of bright yellow amphibious trucks. These rumble around town before splashing into the Thames, producing squeals of excitement from young passengers.
  • French Brothers operates 40-minute river cruises. Their fleet of comfortable, all-weather vessels provide impressive views of Windsor Castle.
  • Youngsters aged nine and above – and accompanied by mum or dad – can get their first taste of river canoeing at Windsor with London Kayak Tours.

Nice hotel with a lovely garden
By Ks72
Nice and clean hotel with a lovely garden where you can relax or have something to eat from the restaurant. The staff are very polite and helpful. Tube station and a Waitrose across the street. Lot [More] of restaurants nearby. We enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend this hotel. [Less]
Good stay
By wmtg
This hotel is conveniently near the Kensington High Street Tube station, with many shops nearby (including a Marks & Spencer and a Whole Foods). You can take the Picadilly line from Heathrow and [More] change at Earl's Court to get to the airport in one hour. Very convenient. (Not worth it to take the express through Paddington. It only saves you 20 min for a lot more money). One nice touch about the hotel is it offers outlets that you can plug your iphone or whatever device into so you don't need to bring an AC/DC adaptor with you. Small thing, but every gram counts when you have to lug your bags from the airport by the tube. The staff was friendly and the room was clean. We booked well in advance so were able to get a reasonable price (helped by the low pound). You have to expect the room is very small and crammed in. This is London after all. The most glaring problem we had was that the WiFi signal was very poor. I mean, you can get some signal, but if you want to do anything that requires bandwidth, you can forget about it. Also, I wish they offer an option not to wash our towels every day. We do care about the environment and it does influence our choice of hotel. Aside from this, we would gladly stay there again. [Less]
Excellent Location
By Karen London
The hotel has an excellent location close to the Kensington High street, tube station, shops and bus stops. There is also a taxi rank outside its door. It is therefore very well placed for quick [More] access to travel around London, and local shops and restaurants. Hyde Park is also just a short walk away. The hotel services have been recently upgraded with the addition of a 24 hour coffee shop which provides round the clock access to drinks and food in the lobby. Very nice for a late night arrival. The wi fi service was weak, erratic and insufficient for business travellers. I think a high speed internet service should be available to serve the needs of business travellers and conference delegates in the function suites. Overall the hotel provides an excellent location with comfortable rooms, 24 hour food and drinks and a spa with swimming pool for those with time for a little relaxation. [Less]
Free drinks vouchers
By Lindy Lou
We took our free drinks vouchers downstairs to use them following our day at Wimbledon. The vouchers either entitle you to a glass of beer or house wine. I asked if I could have a shandy which only [More] includes a dash of lemonade in the beer and after much discussion between staff I was told I couldn't get it as part of the vouch as that would account for another drink. I think the hotel should consider rectifying this by providing a small dash of lemonade,lime or black currant in your beer as part of the voucher deal. [Less]
Great stay
By cybertraveler
We asked for a quiet room on a high floor and were given exactly that, which was appreciated. The classic rooms are certainly not large but are adequate in size and consistent with what you would [More] expect for central London. The location is fantastic and the staff are equally great--particularly the doorman that was there in the mornings. The only small issue we had was with housekeeping--on our second day, we came back at 4:00 after being gone for the entire day and the room still hadn't been touched. Otherwise, we very much enjoyed our stay. [Less]
Party in the park
By Kevla
Bar was disappointing, ordered a drink, twenty minutes later, cancelled the order and went to bed. [Less]
Great hotel but I Wish they would give access to lounge to platinum membe
By Ellie
The hotel is lovely. In a very nice location. We could walk to many spots which is a nice plus. I wish they would give club access to platinum members. Just know that the rooms are small. But this is [More] London so what do I expect? [Less]
