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.
