If you’re above a certain age Windsor probably means the famous figure-of-8 racecourse, the archetypal Eton College, and the Queen’s weekend home, Windsor Castle. But if you’re under a certain age you’re probably thinking happy Legoland thoughts already. Whichever floats your boat – and there’s plenty of those too, as the town straddles the beautiful River Thames – Windsor makes for a great awayday for visitors of all ages. This charming, historic market town in the east of Berkshire has delights to offer families, couples and solo visitors alike.
