Welcome to Time Out
The best of Windsor
The Berkshire town that shares a name with the British monarchy is steeped in royal history, centred around the castle which is one of the Queen’s official residences and offers a variety of things to do. In Windsor, what that all means is that it's inevitably a tourist magnet but this is one of the places worth stopping off at if you’re taking in London’s best attractions and restaurants too. A ramble in Windsor Great Park will invigorate and inspire you, and if you have kids in tow, a day out at Legoland is hard to beat. Make a pit stop at one of Windsor's great restaurants and, if you’re up for more history, stroll across the Thames footbridge to Eton, then scuttle back again for afternoon tea with a view. It’s all frightfully English. Done something on this list and loved it?

Home of Harry and Meghan’s wedding, the Queen’s favourite weekend castle, Eton, and the school that birthed 19 prime ministers, Windsor is as English as it gets. While there are plenty of historical, cultural and lively things to do in the city, the dining scene is well worth your while. The restaurants here are more than just a practice ground for table-trashing with the Bullingdon Club – you’ll find everything from a Francophile three-starred Michelin joint to an independent street food market. If you want to eat well in Windsor, let us be your guide.
