Home to British monarchs for almost 1,000 years, Windsor Castle is 15 minutes' drive from the hotel. Pick up a free multimedia tour and wander through its landscaped gardens, admire Queen Mary's elaborate Dolls' House and see the tomb of Henry VIII in St. George's Chapel. Look out for art by Rembrandt and Canaletto, and visit the 19th-century Semi-State Rooms, reserved for guests of the Queen.
Discover the thrill of horse racing with a visit to Ascot Racecourse, 20 minutes' drive from the hotel. You can bring a picnic, enjoy upscale dining or book your own private box, depending on your budget. Check the race calendar for events throughout the year, which include food and wine festivals and fireworks displays that take place in the beautiful parkland surrounding the track.
If you're in the mood to see a show, the charming Theatre Royal Windsor is just 15 minutes' drive from the hotel. Dating back to 1910, the venue is known for its eclectic programme, showcasing everything from drama to pantomimes, musical tribute acts and cabaret. There's a café and bars if you feel like enjoying a snack or a chilled glass of wine before the show.
You can explore the whole of Windsor aboard a City Sightseeing open-top double-decker bus, with stops at the castle, the high street, the River Thames and Eton College. Day tickets are valid for 24 hours, and you can hop on and off whenever you like, so you don't need to worry about parking. If you're feeling energetic, you can combine sightseeing with a guided kayak or cycle tour of the town.
