Not far from London lies the historic town of Windsor, which couldn’t be more different to the big city. Most of the town’s streets date back to the 19th century although the main street is ancient in origin and predates the famous Windsor Castle by many years. As you walk around this large town there are many large and eye catching buildings from the Stuart, Tudor, Georgian and Victorian periods which look even more spectacular of an evening when they are all lit up suck as the Windsor Guildhall which was built in 1680.
Windsor Castle is probably the most famous of all the sights Windsor has to offer and remains a Royal residence. It was originally built in the 11th century by William the Conqueror and has survived intact through many turbulent periods. It is a popular tourist attraction and if you and your attractive escort visit on a weekend, there is a slight chance that you may even get to see the Queen as it is Her Majesty’s preferred weekend retreat.
If you really want to see the castle in style then you could book one of the riverboat cruises. They run regularly from February right up until November and the short 40 minute trip or the longer two hour trip both offer unique views of the castle which you simply cannot see any other way.
If shopping is more your thing then you and your beautiful escort can head off in style and visit Central Station. As the name suggests, this was once a grand old train station that has now been remodeled into a rather up market shopping centre boasting a good number of designer shops and boutiques.
Another must see is the view from the Royal Windsor Wheel located in Alexandra Gardens. It is a temporary structure and a fairly recent addition to the town’s tourist attractions, assembled ready for the summer months and then dismantled again in the autumn. It offers spectacular unrivaled views across the River Thames, out into the Thames Valley with the castle and its grounds prominently standing out to the other side.
So as you can see, the popular tourist town of Windsor can make a great day out for you and your escort and if you are both feeling up for a bit of fun, you can always spend the day at Legoland Windsor. Although the theme park is aimed at children, it is also a great day out for adults too.
