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.
