Windsor and Eton

Windsor Castle

What to do in Windsor for a day out? Well let me tell you to start your journey at Eton College. If you have a chance, please see this prestigious Eton college. During the coronavirus pandemic, unfortunately the college is not open to public. But you can see its impressive architecture from the outside.

I also try to visit the Eton College Chapel, but it was closed, only the garden was open and I can see a sneak peak of the College.

After admiring the grand Eton college, walk along the Eton high street to see some fantastic independent shops.

We visited Eton Antique Bookshop and also a coffee shop.

At the edge of the high street, before you cross on the bridge, you may want to stopped by at The george pub.

The george pub has a fantasic range of Windsor and Eton beers. When we were there, there are four real ales! My husband loved it so much!

After having a nice drink, get ready to cross a beautiful bridge by Thames river.

We sat at chairs at the bottom pathway and enjoyed very much the relax atmosphere of watching the world goes by on the river.

Then crossing to the other side, we are arriving at Windsor!

Windsor Castle

The Windsor Castle is definitely the star of the attraction. It is mighty and impressively grand. It has beautiful gate. I dis not visited the castle inside, so I just admire the architecture from the outside.

There is also a long grand pathway of procession to the Windsor Castle where it is surrounded by beautiful park.

There are many pubs surrounding the castles. We tried the Carpenters Arms which is a Nicholson pub, but there are others such as Prince Harry and Horse and Groom. There is also a nice tearoom which looks so lovely but we didn’t have a chance to try it.

I hope you enjoy this guide and please comment if you have any questions. Eton and Windsor are really beautiful places to go, you can also squeeze them to a day trip as I did!
